Sometimes you need something easy to fix. My family loves chicken and dumplings and I needed a fast version. Looked in my pantry and this is what I came up with. It only takes 5-10 minutes to prep the food. My family loves it!

Ingredients

    carton chicken broth
  • 1 - 10 3/4 oz
    can cream of chicken with herbs soup, undiluted
  • 1 - 10 oz

How to Make Fast & Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. Place above soup, broth and water in large 4 to 6 quart pan and stir to combine.
  2. Add chicken and diced onion, if using. Stir.
  3. Cook on top of stove at medium low setting until it comes to a low boil. Cook approximately another 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. Add dumplings or noodles.
  5. I frequently make the Bisquick dumplings and that only takes about 20 minutes more to cook (follow directions on box for cooking dumplings).
  6. If you add diced onion, cook until translucent and then add the dumplings or noodles.
  7. If you are in a big hurry get 2 cans of cheap biscuits, cut each biscuit in fourths, drop them in broth and follow instructions above.
  8. For a change try Reames frozen egg noodles instead of the dumplings. Mom loves this over mashed potatoes. Really good comfort food.
  9. You can also use leftover baked chicken or leftover deli chicken instead of canned.
  10. Easily doubles or triples.
