Equipment You’ll Need
Ingredients You’ll Need
Canned Biscuits & Flour:
You’ll need about 3-4 cans of biscuits. I just used the regular buttermilk biscuits and not the flaky kind. You’ll roll them out in plenty of flour and then cut them into 4-6 pieces.
Chopped Yellow Onion & Celery:
You’ll need a yellow onion and celery sticks. You’ll chop them up and sauté them in about 2-3 tablespoons of butter.
I used about a whole rotisserie chicken for this recipe. I never use uncooked chicken for recipes. Some people boil chicken and use it for dumplings. I feel like the flavor is so much better in a rotisserie chicken.
Chicken Broth & Water:
I used equal parts chicken broth and water. I used about 4 cups each. The flour from the biscuits will thicken it up.
Heavy Cream & Milk:
This will add the creaminess to the dumplings.
Country Gravy Mix:
This is essential for this recipe. I only used half of the gravy packet.
How to Make Chicken and Dumplings with Biscuits
Chop up a whole yellow onion and 2-3 stalks of celery. Sauté in 2-3 tablespoons of butter for several until they become tender on medium heat.
Add in rotisserie chicken and cook for a few more minutes. Add in chicken broth, water, salt, pepper, and poultry seasonings. Let it boil for a few minutes.
While pot is simmering, roll out each biscuit in flour and cut them into 4-6 pieces each. Drop them one by one in the broth.
Reduce heat and add in the milk, cream, and half a packet of country white gravy mix. Stir and cook on low for a few more minutes. Serve and enjoy!
