“This is quick and easy using Bisquick and a rotisserie chicken. There's no veggies here, but feel free to add what you like. Also we individually season our portions, according to what we'd like. Try a ground pepper blend, or smoked paprika, or dry chipotle seasoning, or a lemon herb blend.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove chicken meat and cut into small pieces or shred.
  2. In a large pot, heat the chicken broth to boiling and add the chicken meat.
  3. Meanwhile mix the Bisquick with the milk (the dough will be wet and sticky).
  4. Add large spoonfuls of dough to the boiling soup. I usually make about nine dumplings and keep them on the surface of the soup and along perimeter of the pot. If they are in the middle, they don't seem to cook properly.
  5. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes, turning heat to low after a couple minutes.
  6. Cook covered another 10 minutes on low.
