“Tired of super salty, quick-prep chicken and dumplings, my hubby and I set out to create a simple homemade version. In 2004 we came up with this, and we've been making it (to rave reviews from guests) ever since! Straight forward and simple, the trickiest part is remembering to put the flour and milk in AND remove the Bay Leaf. We hope you enjoy this "comfort food" as much as we do!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in Dutch oven (or a nice big pt that you have a lid for) on medium high heat, add cubed chicken and garlic. Stir; cooking until chicken is white.
  2. Add broth, bouillon, salt, pepper, bay leaf, and fresh vegetables to create a stew. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat on stew; simmer on low, covered, 30 minutes, or until chicken and vegetables are tender.
  4. While stew simmers, open biscuits and set out on a plate (to rise) or make your own biscuits.
  5. In separate container, mix flour and milk. After 30 minutes of simmering, remove bay leaf from broth, then whisk flour and milk into broth on stove. Stir well.
  6. Add biscuits to top of stew. Cover and continue cooking on low heat 15 minutes.
  7. Let stand a few minutes before serving.
  8. VARIATION: Make homemade or Biquick biscuits instead of canned.
