Semi Homemade Chicken and Dumplings

Have you ever wanted to make something but kept putting it off because

you thought it was going to be a time consuming process?

That’s exactly how I felt about making chicken & dumplings.

Since I was a little kid I always heard about making homemade biscuit

dough & boiling the chicken and so on & so forth.

Sounds like a lot of work, right!? Right!

But, when you find short cuts, it becomes a really easy &

pretty quick meal to make. So let me share with you this

20 minute semi homemade chicken & dumplings recipe.

1 Bag Biscuit Mix

1/2 cup Milk

2 (14 ounce) Cans Chicken Broth

2 (10 ounce) Cans Chunk Chicken, Drained

In a medium bowl, stir together the biscuit mix & milk as directed on the package.
Pour the two cans of chicken broth into a pan along with the chunks of chicken. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, tear off small pieces of biscuit dough & flatten them into small little dumplings. Drop them into the boiling broth. Make sure you fully submerge the dough into the chicken broth. This is important, as you don’t want to eat raw dough. Once you’ve carefully placed all of the dough into the pot, cover & simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Season & serve warm.
