When I was little we went to my grandparents house every sunday to have lunch with my moms whole family, her 5 sisters and 3 brothers and all their spouse & children, so my grandma had to cook alot of easy quick meals. She boiled her chicken and used the broth but I don't always have time to do that so this is my simple easy fast way. I will add Picture next time I make these.

How To Make really easy chicken dumplings

  • 1
    Bring the broth, water, cubes & chicken to a boil.
  • 2
    Tear biscuits in small pieces how ever large you want your dumpings to be. I drop them in broth as I tear them. Biscuit will swell up really quickly but will srink back down as they cook.
  • 3
    reduce heat enough to keep the pot from boiling over, let them cook 25 - 30 mins for firm dumplings for doughy dumplings cook only 10 - 15 minute. Stir frequently.
