Comfort Food - Quick Chicken & Dumplings

We've had some oddly COLD weather here in South Texas. The temps last weekend got down into the low teens, which caused us to go into hibernation!!

Warm fire, cozy blanket, good movie and a nice bowl of Chicken & Dumplings...
I can't think of anything better to go with this cold weather!

I don't make Chicken & Dumplings often, because I'm not one to create a meal that takes hours to prepare. SO, I've put together a recipe that only takes an hour.
(I can live with that!)

Quick Chicken & Dumplings

1-2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
(either bake, crockpot or pressure cook chicken for easy shredding)
1 - 10 oz. can cream of chicken
2 - 10 oz. cans chicken broth
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup baby carrots
1 package of biscuits (buttered or unbuttered)
(I add celery if I have any)

Combine shredded chicken, chicken broth, cream of chicken, water, carrots, and your choice of seasonings, such as parsley, salt, pepper, garlic or onion powder into a large pot on the stove.

Cook on Medium to High heat for about 30 - 45 minutes

About 15 minutes before ready to eat, cut biscuits into quarters and place into the pot. Stir occasionally. Chicken and Dumplings will thicken once the biscuits are placed in.

Cover again until ready to eat.

The easiest dumplings you have ever made!!

I've always wanted to make dumplings but never have. This sounds like the perfect (simple) way to try it! Thanks for the recipe.
