  • 1 pound chicken tenders, diced
  • ½ onion, finely diced
  • 1 (32 oz) container chicken stock
  • 1 cup milk, or half & half
  • 1 packet chicken gravy mix (or cream of chicken soup)
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2/3 cups warm water


  • Place a large pot on stove over medium high heat, add chicken broth, diced onion and diced chicken tenders.
  • Cook until onions turn soft and chicken is cooked.
  • Season mixture with salt and pepper
  • In a small bowl, whisk together gravy mix and milk.
  • Pour into pot.
  • Stir and bring up to a boil (to thicken slightly).
  • Add frozen peas and carrots.
  • In a medium bowl, combine Bisquick with warm water.
  • Stir until combined.
  • Drop tablespoonfuls of prepared mix into the pot, spacing dumplings as evenly as you can.
  • Cover pot tightly and reduce heat to medium low.
  • Steam dumplings 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve.



*For a creamier chicken and dumplings, use a can of cream of chicken soup instead of the chicken gravy packet. All the other ingredient measurements remain the same.
*Chicken and Dumplings don’t always make the best leftovers. The dumplings will continue to absorb the liquid so when you make this, be sure you’re going to eat it all the same day. Also, if you'd like, you can use some rotisserie chicken in this which gives it a wonderful flavor or if you have leftovers from a roasted chicken.
