I would give it fewer stars if I could. This was so bland looking and tasting that we threw out the leftovers.

FYI caution that if cooked chicken is added and cooked more-it toughens. Except for this recipe, best to stir chicken in before serving if possible.

I prefer to make my dumplings using Bisquick. Fast, light

Wow... Just made this for dinner and it has become an instant family favorite. I made one change: I added 1 extra teaspoon of bouillon. Besides that, the recipe is perfect as is!

These are nothing like the chicken and dumplings at Cracker Barrel They would never used biscuits for dumplings. Their dumplines are hand made as I do mine.

Delicious! I tweaked it quite a bit though. I finely diced the mushrooms and added finely diced carrots to the peppers and onions. I also used dried parsley (1/2 tsp), 1/2 tsp thyme (crushed further in a mortar) and 1 tsp poultry seasoning. NOTE: I used 4 XL refrigerated biscuits cut into 8 pieces. In the future, I would either make spaetzle-like dumplings from scratch, use a smaller refrigerator biscuit (still cut into 8) OR 2-3 XL biscuits but cut even smaller. These expanded a lot (too much for our tastes).

Very good as well as being very quick and easy. I used leftover baked chicken I had frozen and a can of jumbo biscuits rather than the frozen ones and left out the mushrooms because I didn't have any. Great flavor and real comfort food on a cold winter night.

In place of the Chicken Stock, I make a veggie stock with Carrots, Onions, Green Bell Pepper and Celery. About a cup of each in a pot, cover with water and cook down until carrots are soft. Then it goes into a blender and into the start of the dish. I do not add the biscuits to the pot. I bake them and serve the chicken etc. over them and it has a great result.

I tried this recipe a couple of months ago. Author is right -- it *is* quick and fairly delicious as well. I did not like the dumplings but that's probably because I used biscuits that come in the refrigerated section of the grocery store rather than the frozen that the recipe calls for. Also I cut the amounts in half since there are only two of us now. Other than that, tasty comfort food in a snap!

I think this was an excellent base recipe. I cut the recipe in half and it still turned out yummy. Instead of mushrooms I used carrots I had steamed to crisp-tender. Next time I will add more. I also thought it could have used a tad more "sauce" so maybe I will do something with that next time. For the frozen biscuits, I tried cutting them but they were so frozen they were like rocks. I put them in the microwave for 10 seconds and that loosened them up just enough to cut. I agree with others that it could use a bit more seasoning. I will add some of Mccormick's Rotisserie Chicken seasoning next time around. Also, I simmered for exactly 10 minutes and while the toothpick came out clean, I think next time I will cook it a tad longer. The biscuit was way to gooey on the bottom. Overall, my husband and I REALLY enjoyed this and I will be making it again!
