Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Cut chicken breast into bite-size pieces or strips (thin). If using a whole chicken pull meat from bones, discarding skin and bones. Put chicken in 8 cups of water, bring to a boil, add salt, pepper to taste, add 2 teaspoons of poultry seasoning (or to taste).
  • Cook until chicken is tender approx. 2 hours over medium heat. When chicken is done/tender add chicken broth. Bring back to a boil.
  • Take canned biscuits and flatten each one out either by hand or with a rolling pen. Pinch off small pieces (you should get approx. 15 small pieces per biscuit) drop into boiling water, stir between each can of biscuits. After you have added all the biscuits stir again.
  • Cover and let cook for approx. 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so the dumplings won't stick to bottom of pan. When done remove from heat, taste, add salt or pepper if needed.

Notes

It is easier to remove meat and bones from whole chicken after it is boiled. If you choose to boil chicken first, let it cool before trying to remove bones and skin. Salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning is to taste. It doesn't matter what brand of broth or biscuits you use. Chicken is always more tender if you cook it longer over low heat.
