This is a quick and easy way to prepare chicken and dumplings...I started preparing them this way since it was something I could do after a long day at work. It also didn't require me to make biscuits from scratch or even from Bisquick.

How to Make Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large stock pot, place chicken and butter. Fill pot till chicken is well covered and has at least 2 to 3 inches of water above it. Boil chicken until well cooked but not falling off the bone. Approximately 45 minutes.
  • 2While chicken is cooking, cut up burrito shells in desired lengths and widths with pizza cutter and set aside. Once chicken is cooked to instructions, remove from pot and set aside to cool until it can be removed from bone. At this point, I usually saute my finely chopped onions in butter till translucent and add to stock pot. I found this gives a deeper flavor to the dumplings.
  • 3Add both cans of evaporated milk to chicken stock and bring back to boil. Add seasonings to taste. Once pot has returned to boil drop in burrito strips slowly, stirring continuously while adding all the strips. Reduce heat to a low boil in order for burrito strips to plump up and cook completely. Stir pot occasionally to keep dumplings from sticking. Allow to cook for approximately 20 to 30 minutes
  • 4Once dumplings are cooked, add cans of cream of chicken soup to stock pot. Stir to ensure that soup dissolves well into base. Remove chicken from bone tearing it to bite size pieces. Add chicken back into pot. Season again if needed. Bring soup back to low boil allowing all flavors to meld together.
