Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. With whisk, beat in flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; cook 1 minute. Slowly beat in 1 cup of the milk in a thin stream, beating constantly; heat to boiling, then stir in remaining 2 cups milk, frozen vegetables and chicken. Return to boiling, stirring frequently.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 5 biscuits; cut each into fourths. Place biscuits on boiling mixture. Reduce to simmering; cook uncovered 10 minutes.
  • 3
    Stir; cover and reduce heat to low. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until biscuits are cooked through.
  • 4
    Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Rotisserie chicken or any leftover cooked chicken or turkey works well in these Cheesy Chicken and Dumplings.
  • tip 2
    Stirring in some of the milk slowly at first prevents the sauce from clumping.
  • tip 3
    Top your Cheesy Chicken and Dumplings with chopped fresh parsley for a pretty garnish.
