Okay, I'm not understanding why this recipe didn't fly with some. This was perfect for me and in so glad I came across this one. I've tried it this way but I've also tweaked it. Not many like mushrooms so I simplified this recipe to only have chicken and the dumplings. ?? I also cooked the chicken and added bouillion cubes to the chicken while cooking it (this also counted towards the broth part of the recipe). I used less biscuits because I used less liquid. I added all the herbs asked for and to thicken it some I added a couple of spoons of cream of potato soup. It adds salt, so make sure your broth isn't as salty and the flavor should be fine. This recipe is a keeper for me. ??
Not even close. The CB dumplings are from scratch, rolled and cut and sooo much better. I make the same kind that I learned from my Mom to make....vintage recipe....flour, shortening, eggs and milk, cooked in the chicken broth from boiling the whole chicken.
I have not tried this, though it looks great. But as a copy cat for Cracker Barrell, not even close. The dumplings at Cracker Barrell are the flat dumplings.
I live this recipe! I tweak it a little to my family’s taste and they thoroughly enjoy it!!!
Do you use frozen biscuits and cut them into quarters?
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.
