Chicken and Dumplings

Updated: Dec 9, 2018

Chicken and Dumplings is a top five comfort meal for my husband. His mother makes a great version which I have used to build my own recipe. It was her idea to use refrigerated biscuits as the dumplings and it works so well. The best part is I don't have to make a mess on the counter rolling and cutting dough. This recipe makes a lot so I suggest ladling into mason jars and gifting them to others.
