  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2 lbs. boneless,  skinless chicken breasts,  cut into small (tiny) pieces
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 medium onion – chopped
  • 1 pkt or cube chicken bouillon
  • 1 c water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 TBSP parsley flakes
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup

  • 1/2 c frozen peas
  • 1 1/2 c small broccoli florets
  • 2 c Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 TBSP parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 can chicken broth (1 c for dumplings and the rest poured into chicken)


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet. Coat chicken in salt, pepper, and garlic powder. When butter has melted,  saute chicken for 5 minutes.  Add onion and saute until chicken has browned and bottom of skillet is browned slightly.  Add water and bouillon packet or bouillon cube. Deglaze pan and bring to a boil. Add cream of chicken soup, bay leaves, and parsley. Add carrots and potatoes.. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add peas and continue simmering for an additional 5 minutes. Add broccoli and cover for the last 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine baking mix, salt, garlic, pepper, parsley, thyme, and 1 c chicken broth. Dough consistency needs to be semi soft, in order to drop by spoonfuls.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drop 2 TBSP dollops on top of chicken mixture.  Bake for 20-30 minutes or until dumplings are golden brown.
