Sometimes you need something easy to fix. My family loves chicken and dumplings and I needed a fast version. Looked in my pantry and this is what I came up with. It only takes 5-10 minutes to prep the food. My family loves it!

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 - 32 oz
carton chicken broth
1 - 10 3/4 oz
can cream of chicken with herbs soup, undiluted
1 - 10 oz
can cooked chicken, break up larger pieces
1 medium
onion, diced, optional
1/2
soup can of water
1 tsp
black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place above soup, broth and water in large 4 to 6 quart pan and stir to combine.
2
Add chicken and diced onion, if using. Stir.
3
Cook on top of stove at medium low setting until it comes to a low boil. Cook approximately another 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
4
Add dumplings or noodles.
5
I frequently make the Bisquick dumplings and that only takes about 20 minutes more to cook (follow directions on box for cooking dumplings).
6
If you add diced onion, cook until translucent and then add the dumplings or noodles.
7
If you are in a big hurry get 2 cans of cheap biscuits, cut each biscuit in fourths, drop them in broth and follow instructions above.
8
For a change try Reames frozen egg noodles instead of the dumplings. Mom loves this over mashed potatoes. Really good comfort food.
9
You can also use leftover baked chicken or leftover deli chicken instead of canned.
10
Easily doubles or triples.
