This easy chicken and dumplings recipe is made with store bought biscuit dough and homemade soup. This old fashioned southern soup is comfort in a bowl!


  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 can store bought biscuit dough
  • 2 cups cooked and chunkily shredded chicken


  • In a large, heavy bottomed stockpot, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium-low heat.
  • Add onions, carrots, and celery and let them cook until softened, 5-7 minutes.
  • Add remaining butter. Once melted, add flour. Stir frequently and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and add milk. Bring to a simmer and simmer until mixture has thickened, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes.
  • Add salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and chicken stock. Raise heat to medium-low and let simmer.
  • While the soup is simmering, remove about five biscuits from the store bought biscuit container. Slice into thin strips (about 1/2 inch wide). Drop into soup, cover leaving a crack, and let cook without stirring for 8-10 minutes, until biscuits have cooked in the center.
  • Stir in chicken and cook until heated through, 3-5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
