chicken and dumplings on a fork with a skillet in the background

 This is an easy dinner that the whole family loves.  I use a ½ a rotisserie chicken in this dish (and freeze the other half of the chicken in a Ziploc bag for next time!).  Once the biscuits are browned, the dish is covered with foil and baked a little more to soften the biscuits and give it a moist texture.

If you’d prefer, used homemade biscuits or buttermilk biscuits.

Serve this up with a side salad for a yummy weeknight meal!

  1. I had’nt tried any of these recipes but want to. They seem to be good nutrients and family hot meals.

  2. I thought this was absolutely delicious. I did use an herbed flavored rotisserie chicken and “Immaculate” biscuits (sliced it horizontally).5 stars

  3. Looks delicious and if you can’t boil water, you should be capable of making this, it’s clear and cut for Chicken and dumplings from Facebook

  4. Looks good! Did you use the Pillsbury Grands biscuits, or the smaller ones? Also, is that an 10 or 12 inch skillet?

  5. Just made this, followed the recipe exactly, and everyone thought it was a great weekday of all no leftovers..
