WOW, Penny! What a devine quickie recipe! I've been teaching teenaged Boy Scouts how to cook for them selves over a campfire. If the recipe turns out well as they feed each other, then they make it at home for their families. I can't even begin to recall all the recipes I have taught them using the "low cost - 4 pack packages of refrigerated biscuits". This is a recipe my family and I shall be 'testing' immediately. I'll report back to you - quickly! Thanks so much for posting this upon the JAP website. We appreciate learning a 'new' method for making a meal we already love. LOL :-)

I wouldn't think yours would be horrible, just scared mine might be! LOL, only cuz i've never made chicken n dumplings before, it always seemed too complicated. This looks easy tho.

LOL, it won't be horrible. May not be a gourmet dish, but I can promise it's not horrible. :)

And I just now saw the water question. Just put the chicken in the pan, then fill it up with water up to about 1 inch from the top of the pan. I've never actually measured it out before. Then save and use it all.
