Wanda's Chicken & Dumplings

Bill's sister Wanda has some great recipes that are simple. One of our favorites is her Chicken & Dumplings. This is so easy and so delicious!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken (I debone a whole rotisserie chicken.)
  • Family size can Cream of Chicken soup
  • 4 cans chicken broth
  • 4 cans cheap biscuits (I usually get a 4-pack of Walmart's Great Value brand.)
  • Mortons Nature Seasoning (1 tsp. or to your tasting)

Directions:

  1. Pour soup into pot.
  2. Add almost a full soup can of water.
  3. Whisk in 4 cans chicken broth.
  4. Add Mortons Nature Seasoning.
  5. Add chicken.
  6. Bring to a boil.
  7. Roll each biscuit between two pieces of waxed paper until flat and cut into quarters.
  8. Add biscuits to boiling liquid as you flat and cut them. Continue until all biscuits are in pot.
  9. Stir constantly until biscuits (dumplings) are done. (Taste to make sure dumplings are done.)
  10. Transfer to crock pot with setting on "warm" if waiting to serve.
  11. Enjoy!
