I learned to make this from my mother. Its a wonderful comfort food. You can add different vegetables as you like.

My mother made dumplings from scratch but I find the bisquick version is easier and tastes the same. The dumplings are light and fluffy, just very good.

How to Make Down Home Chicken and Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. Stir bouillon into 1 cup of boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add pepper and poultry seasoning to liquid. Simmer chicken in broth and bouillon for about 30 minutes. Add celery, onion, and carrots. Continue to simmer until chicken and vegetables are cooked.

    In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup corn starch and enough water to form a thin paste. Stir into cooking broth to thicken it into a light gravy. If you need like more thickening repeat with second 1/4 cup cornstarch. Bring up heat a bit so stew is bubbling lightly. Taste and add salt and pepper as necessary to your liking.
  2. Stir together dumpling ingredients just until moistened. Do not mix too much or dumplings will be tough. Drop by tablespoons full onto top of bubbling chicken stew. Sprinkle with parsley. Cover imediately. Cook for 15 minutes without removing cover of kettle. Serve immediately.
