I've always loved chicken & dumplings. By using chicken legs and chicken broth, instead of milk for the dumplings, its made my chicken & dumplings memorable. My family and friends ALWAYS want more. I can never make enough DUMPLINGS!

How to Make Delicious Chicken & Dumplings


  1. Rinse off chicken legs . Put legs in large pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Boil for about 45 minutes. Check chicken legs with a fork. Meat needs to fall right off of bone. Boil longer, if needed.
  2. Lay out legs onto a cookie sheet to cool off. Drain liquid to remove bone pieces and any skin . Put liquid back in pot.
  3. As soon as legs are cool enough to handle, pull off all meat-put meat back in pot. Discard bones and skin.
  4. Mix 2 1/2 cups Bisquick to 3/4 cup chicken broth. (My family loves lots if dumplings, so i use 3 cups with a bit more broth).
  5. Add remaining chicken broth to the pot and bring to a boil.
  6. Using a tbsp. , scoop out dumplings and drop into boiling broth at a fast pace. Then reduce heat and cook uncovered 10 minutes. Stir to avoid sticking to bottom. Cover and cook an additional 7-10 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat & uncover . Let sit for 5 minutes. Add salt & pepper to taste. ENJOY!
