Easy Chicken & Dumplings

By popular demand (er… one person, but who’s counting?!) we’re back with the lovely Tempting Tuesdays!

I’m going to tell you how to make the easiest, yummiest Chicken & Dumplings you’ve ever tasted! (Well, thats my opinion anyway!) My only warning to y’all is that this is not a precise thing. But I promise, promise, promise you can’t mess it up!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • one box of chicken broth
  • seasoning/spices (I use black pepper and Mrs. Dash table blend)
  • 3 to 5 chicken breasts
  • 2 chicken bullion cubes
  • 2-3 cans small biscuits
  • one small can carrots


  • bring large pot of water to a boil
  • add chicken, black pepper and table blend seasoning (just eye ball it), and two chicken bullion cubes
  • let chicken fully cook
  • remove chicken and let cool enough to be able to handle it- you can turn heat on water down
  • while chicken is cooling lay out some wax paper or aluminum foil- then take each biscuit out of can and pull each of them apart three or four times evenly. Then loosely roll them into balls and set them on the foil/paper (this is what makes the dumplings if you didn’t know, ha!)
  • slice/chop chicken to desired size (I usually cut it into small strips about the length of the spoon you’ll eat it with)
  • put chicken back into water, bring back up to a boil
  • add carrots
  • add biscuits/dumplings to boiling water
  • let boil around 5 to 10 minutes- I always just take out a large dumpling and cut it and taste it to see if its done (not still raw doughy tasting)
  • voila! you are done!

I’m hoping that those directions are clear enough. I’ve been writing this blog for about 2 hours because a certain little girl is being a mess today (continued from yesterday!). Need proof?

I love my new lion toy!
trying to escape the swing... thank goodness I strapped her in!

Let me know if you have any questions about the recipe! You really can’t mess it up!
