  • 1
    In 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, heat broth, chicken, soup and poultry seasoning to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium-high; return to a low boil.
  • 2
    On lightly floured surface, roll or pat each biscuit to 1/8-inch thickness; cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
  • 3
    Drop strips, one at a time, into boiling chicken mixture. Add carrots and celery. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent dumplings from sticking.

Expert Tips

  • Refrigerated biscuit dough is a natural stand-in for homemade dumplings—the dough is nearly identical, and you don’t have to mix up the dough. The strips will actually cook more evenly than if a large dumpling was dropped into the hot filling.
  • The creamy filling is the right foil for leftover (or rotisserie) roasted or grilled chicken and any vegetables you’d like. Go beyond carrots and celery—try leeks, parsnips, rutabaga, broccoli, cut green beans, or sugar snap peas.
  • Poultry seasoning is a flexible blend of sage, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, nutmeg, and black pepper. Every brand has its own proprietary ratio of each herb and spice, but sage tends to be the predominant flavor and is especially complementary to chicken. If you don’t have a bottle of a poultry blend, experiment and make up your own.
