"Cheat" Chicken-N-Dumplings

Sandy Griffith


My sister-n-law, Kathy would make this dish at least once every week. Not only would our children gobble this dish up, but us adults would too. Add some fried cornbread and we had a feast of some good comfort food! Yummo!

How to Make "Cheat" Chicken-N-Dumplings


  1. Boil chicken breast in water with bouillon cubes till tender.
  2. Remove chicken and cut into tiny chunks.
  3. Bring broth back to boil. (You may have to add a little more water or a can of chicken broth) Turn down heat where it is not a hard boil but boiling good.
  4. Pop open cans of biscuits. Pinch off biscuits and start rolling in balls dropping in broth. Continue pinching and dropping off as much biscuits as you want to add in your pot. (you may want to use more then two cans) Boil till biscuits don't look raw.
  5. Add chicken back to get the chicken hot. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Serve.
    Fry some cornbread up and enjoy!
