Chicken and Dumplings is a classic Southern comfort food. This easy dish is made with chicken and canned biscuits for the dumplings. It's easy to make and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes.


canned biscuits (either 1 can of Grands or 2 regular)

cooked chicken

chicken broth

cream of chicken soup

black pepper

Heat chicken broth in a pot on medium-high heat and cook until it starts to gently boil. Add chicken. You’ll want to use chicken that has already been cooked.

Cut biscuits into small pieces and place in chicken broth mixture. The "dumplings" will expand in the broth. Stir well.

Add a can of cream of chicken soup to the pot and stir. This is a shortcut for making chicken and dumplings creamy.

Season the dumplings by with pepper. Pour the pepper in and stir well. Because of the broth and soup, you don't need to add any salt.

Reduce the heat, and let the chicken and dumplings simmer for 5-10 minutes. Serve with a green veggie or side salad to round out the meal.
