Author Suzy Handgraaf


  • 2 cups all-purpose baking mix I use Bisquick
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken I use 3 - 4 boneless breasts
  • 6 cups chicken broth Reserve the broth from cooking the chicken. May add ready made broth if more is needed.
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 15 oz can petite green peas drained
  • 1 14.5 oz can sliced carrots drained


  • Prepare the dumplings by stirring the first four ingredients together until moistened. The mixture will be lumpy. Set aside.
  • Bring the cooked chicken and next six ingredients to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Reduce the heat to low and drop the dumpling dough by tablespoon fulls into the simmering mixture. Cover and cook, stirring once, for 15 minutes. Uncover and cook 10 minutes more or until the dumplings are done.

    1. I hope you love it as much as I do! It’s one of those recipes that I actually think is better on the second day.

  2. I’ve made beef stew but never chicken & dumplings. My family would LOVE this recipe! Thanks so much for linking up with Share The Wealth Sunday!


  3. How does the broth thicken up so nicely?

    1. Hi Irene. It just naturally thickens as it simmers. I assume it’s because of the Bisquick.

  4. This looks good – better than many similar recipes I’ve seen.

  5. I’ve never made chicken & dumplings. I did have it once at someone else’s house, and it was so good. This recipe lives up to my memory! I’d love to try it.
