How to Make So Easy & Tasty Chicken and Dumplings
- In 4 to 5-quart pot, heat broth, chicken, cream of chicken soup and poultry seasoning to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to bring mixture to a medium boil.
- On lightly floured surface, roll or pat each biscuit to 1/8-inch thickness; cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
- Drop strips, one at a time, into boiling chicken mixture. Add carrots and celery. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent dumplings from sticking. Sprinkle with green onions and black pepper; serve.
- *Extra noodles can be cooked in a pot of salted water, and then added to soup. Noodles reduce in volume as they cool.
