Chicken and Dumplings Soup


I came up with this recipe because I had leftover chicken. After Thanksgiving I often make this soup using leftover turkey.

Step 1

In a Dutch oven, sauté butter, celery and onions for five minutes.

Step 2

Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.

Step 3

Stir in can of cream of chicken soup.

Step 4

Divide the biscuits in half across the layers (which is why you want flaky layer biscuits), then cut each into 6 pieces.

Step 5

Reduce heat and add cooked chicken.

Step 6

Reduce heat and slowly add dumplings (in very small batches to keep them from sticking together), stirring constantly. After the dumplings rise to the top of the pot, simmer an additional 10 minutes.

Using flaky layer biscuits is the key to this soup.
