How to Make Chicken - N - Biscuit Dumplings


  • 1In a large stock pot, place chicken and next 8 ingredients. Cover chicken with water, by about 2 inches.

    Bring to a boil, and poach chicken till juices run clear. About 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
  • 2Remove chicken from pot to cool. After cool enough to touch, pull apart into desired sized pieces.
  • 3Strain chicken stock. Return stock and veggies to pot. Should be about 10 cups. I then added another 4 cups of water. Seasoned with 2 tablespoons chicken or turkey buillon paste.
  • 4Bring the broth back to a boil.

    While broth is coming to a boil. Pull your biscuits apart into pieces about the size of a quarter. Toss in flour to keep from sticking together.
  • 5When broth is boiling, add the biscuit pieces a few at a time... and any remaining flour. Once all biscuits are in the broth, gently stir to make sure they aren't sticking together. ( I also take the back of spoon and keep pushing them under the broth until they are firming up and plainly separated from each other).
    Keep boiling for another 5 - 10 minutes until they lose their puffiness and resemble thick noodles and no longer gooey.
  • 6I then taste the broth and add more seasoning if needed.
  • 7Return the chicken pieces to the broth, cook until heated through. If you like a thicker broth. Make a slurry of corn starch and water. Making sure broth is boiling, stir in the corn starch. I used about 2 tablespoons and 1/2 cup water.
