Bisquick Chicken and Dumplings

Make a hearty pot of Bisquick Chicken and Dumplings for dinner tonight. Your family will thank you!

Easy Chicken and Dumplings made with Bisquick!

When you think of Southern comfort food, this is sure to be one of dishes that comes to mind. Chicken and dumplings is one of the first recipes I learned from my mom. She taught me to make it with canned biscuits, which is a great shortcut. I made it her way a lot in college and when we were newlyweds, but for some reason I forgot about this family favorite for a while. I’m so glad to bring it back, and the rest of the family is happy too! It’s hard not to enjoy a hot bowl of dumplings, chicken, and vegetables smothered in a thick and creamy broth.

This easy chicken and dumplings recipe is flexible on cooking ahead and keeping warm or getting ready in 45 minutes, with only about 15 minutes of active cooking.  I love this warm, comforting dish for dinner at home on a cold day, or it’s great to take to potlucks. You can substitute canned biscuits for the Bisquick dumplings.  If you do, I get the best results with the least expensive cans of biscuits, usually smaller cans sold in a 4-pack. If you prefer, serve with peas and/or carrots on the side, but I like making it a one-dish meal.

Instructions
  1. In a large stockpot, add chicken broth, carrots, and chicken breasts. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until carrots are tender.
  2. While carrots and chicken simmer, stir together baking mix and milk until dough forms.
  3. Remove chicken from broth and set aside. Add frozen peas to pot and return to boil. Tear off grape-sized balls of dough and drop into boiling broth (or roll and cut dough into uniform dumplings if you prefer). Stir as needed to ensure dumplings are submerged.
  4. Shred chicken with two forks and stir into broth with dumplings. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes more.
Recipe Notes

You can substitute canned biscuit dough for the baking mix dumplings if you prefer.

    I love this idea. I just wanted to know if you could make a chicken bouillon broth instead of using regular chicken stock? I’m 17 by the way, I’m not to experienced with this kind of stuff. A reply to my e-mail would be great at elassa.renee@gmail.com. Thanks, and much appreciation.

    • Hi, Elassa! Thanks so much for your visit and question. You could definitely use broth made with chicken bouillon. You would just want to bring the water to a boil, add the bouillon cubes and let them dissolve completely before cooking the dumplings. I hope you get a chance to try this recipe. I used to make it a lot in college with canned biscuits when I was about your age! (OK, that makes me sound old…)

      • Thank you for the recipe. I didn’t have chicken broth, so I substituted with a 14oz can of cream of chicken, and two can-fulls of water. It turned out really well. :)

        • Ooh, smart move, MaryAnn! I’m sure it turned out delicious. Thanks so much for coming back to tell me how you liked it! :)

  2. I have eaten Bisquick dumplings my whole life, my mom made them I still make them. They are delicious. I don’t put peas and carrots in just chicken, thicken broth and dumplings. Easy and always come out perfect, just follow the recipe on the box. Just the two of us now, so I cut the recipe in half and still perfect.

    • Hi, Sheila! I didn’t grow up eating them with peas and carrots, and my mom always used canned biscuits. I changed it up a little since I always have Bisquick on hand, and I like making it a one-dish dinner. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. This chicken and dumpling recipe was awesome! Thanks a bunch!

  4. Great recipe! I modified it a bit: two handfulls of diced sweet yellow onion and a few minced cloves of garlic in the broth when you first start cooking. Turned out wonderfully.

    Hi Andi! I am recently married and very much a novice on the cooking scene. Do I cook the canned biscuits in the oven and then add them or just cut them up and submerge them in the mixture? Also, do you think using a precooked rotisserie chicken would work?

    • Hi, MaryKate! I’m glad you found me :) I used to make this recipe a lot when I was a newlywed too! Rotisserie chicken will work great. I would start the broth and carrots boiling while you shred the chicken meat and then add it for the last 10 minutes of step one since it’s already cooked. To use canned biscuits, just drop balls of raw dough right into the boiling broth with the chicken (you don’t need to remove the chicken since it’s already shredded). The dough will cook and puff up into dumplings in the boiling broth. Let me know if any of this doesn’t make sense or you have other questions. Thanks for your comment!

  6. Good recipe and am making it tonight!

    Odd question for ya’ll……does anyone know the font that they used for the titled this recipe? I LOVE IT!

    • Hi, Tobey! Thank you! I just changed to that font last week after much agonizing over which one to pick, so I really appreciate it. It’s called “Satisfy” and you can find it in Google fonts. I hope you love the chicken and dumplings!

  7. Great recipe. Good comfort food that seems like you spent hours but you didn’t. I actually sauted the veggies in some butter and olive oil first and then added some flour to them to create roux thicken up the broth. I also added some poultry seasoning and a bay leaf as well as some fresh dill to the dumpling mixture. It was yummy!

  8. Great recipe that was super easy! The Kroger brand biscuits seemed fine even though we had bisquick. After reading the comments, I went the route of starting with butter, onions and garlic.. and then flour for a thicker gravy in the final product. Every recipe is just a guide and every advanced cook will alter it somewhere, and your guidance was splendid. Thanks !

    • I’m glad it turned out well for you, Dustin. You can never go wrong with butter, onion, and garlic. Thanks for taking the time to come back to let me know how you liked the recipe!
