Prepare Your Ingredients

Boiling Chicken & Veggies

To Make Dumplings

Adding Dumplings to Pot & Complete


Prepare your ingredients:

The first thing you need to do is gather your ingredients. Here's what you'll need:

 1 pound of chicken thighs, cut up or cut up whole chicken and remove one pound
• 2 medium stalks celery, chopped
• 1 medium carrot, sliced
• 1 small onion, sliced
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons parsley flakes
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon pepper
• 3 cups water or enough to cover chicken
• 2 1/2 cups Original Bisquick mix
• 2/3 cup milk

Boiling Chicken & Veggies:

Once your ingredients are ready to go the first thing is to locate the largest stock pot you have and dump all the veggies in. See an example below.


Next you'll want to add the chicken and cover with water (to a level where it just covers).


Add your spices and light stir. See here:


Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer about 1 1/2 hours or until chicken is cooked through.

To Make Dumplings

(Do this step while chicken & veggies are boiling):


In a separate bowl stir the Bisquick mix and milk until soft dough forms.

Adding Dumplings to Pot and Complete

Drop spoonfuls of dough mixture on top of the cooking chicken & veggies mixture.

Add enough to make a layer of dumplings along the top.


Don't worry if it looks like it's blending together, it will cook into little biscuit mounds.

Cook this uncovered about 10 minutes.

Then cover and cook another 10 minutes or until the Bisquick mixture has turned to what looks like cooked biscuits.


Remove from heat.

Now you are ready to serve! Keep in mind this is really hot, so it might be best to let it cool slightly before serving.

And that's about it! It's as easy as that to make a wonderful recipe for old fashioned chicken and dumplings.
