Boil chicken in a 5 or 6 quart sauce pan with water, bouillon cubes, celery and onions until cooked through. Remove from water. Save water. Let cool, then tear chicken into small pieces. Flatten out each biscuit and cut into 3 or 4 strips each. Add cream of chicken soup to water you saved and bring to a slow boil. Add biscuit strips, stirring frequently, until they plump into dumplings. Add chicken, simmer and serve.

I just love your recipes! I love how you can turn them into "shortcut" recipes without losing any of the flavor in the food! Thanks for making things easier for people on the run!

I have made dumplings from the biscuits and they are a great comfort food.

How much water do you start out with and how much do you save to add the soup to?

I just fill up the pan with water leaving enough room to add in the chicken. No set amount. And save it all.
