So Easy & Tasty Chicken and Dumplings

Martha Price


This is an easy way to make chicken and dumplings. The dumplings are the ‘noodle’ type, as opposed to the drop dumplings, which cook on top of the chicken. The dumplings are made by rolling out and cutting refrigerated biscuit dough. Although I had heard of this method before, I hadn’t tried it until a few days ago. I was quite pleased with the results! A quick and tasty dinner for a hectic week day!
