Chicken and Dumplings 


Bring on the cozy! As the weather gets cooler, the first thing I turn to are warming soups. Chicken and dumplings have always been a classic in my home, so I revamped it and created a bit healthier version using some of my favorite cookware from Misen

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

185 g (1 large) white onion, diced

95g (2 large) carrots, chopped

110g (2 stalks) celery, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

3 1/2 cup, reduced sodium chicken broth 

12 ounces cream of chicken 98% FF

21 oz pulled rotisserie chicken 

5 biscuits, Grands! Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuit, cut into small pieces 

2 tsp fresh thyme

1 tsp fresh parsley

Salt and pepper



In a large dutch oven (I used Misen’s 7-Qt Dutch Oven) , heat oil over medium-high heat. Chop all of your veggies. I used Misen’s short chef knife which allows for a bit more control, so its great for people who are new to using a professional knife or those with smaller hands (me). 


Add onion, carrots and celery; cook and stir 6-8 minutes or until onion is tender. Be sure to add a lot of salt to help the vegetables sweat.


Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Add pepper and 1 tsp fresh thyme. Gradually add broth, stirring constantly. Stir in cream of chicken and shredded chicken; bring to a boil. 

Reduce heat to a low and drop dumplings on top of simmering soup, a few at a time. Cook, covered, 15-18 minutes (do not lift cover while simmering). Gently stir in remaining parsley and thyme. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.

  1. This recipe is SO good! It was easy to throw together with things I already had in my kitchen, came together beautifully and my whole family loved it. The portion size was huge and satisfying!

  2. We made this last night and it was awesome! Loved that the broth was thicker from the cream of chicken. I had chicken breast on hand so popped those in the crockpot and shredded it beforehand and it worked well for this recipe. This was very satisfying, my boyfriend and I were both full after one bowl, it didn’t leave us hungry like some other soups!
