    2. Wipe out frying pan and return to hob. Stir soup and milk together in frying pan. Place chicken in pan and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover frying pan and simmer 45 minutes, turning chicken from time to time.
    3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine 250g baking mix, milk, parsley and chicken seasoning, stirring together until a soft dough forms. Once the chicken has cooked 45 minutes, drop the dumpling mixture by tablespoonfuls into the simmering sauce. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes; cover and cook 10 minutes more, until dumplings expand.

    I didn't have baking mix, so used 2 cups of flour, 3 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 egg. Used milk and chicken broth until the right consistancy was achieved.  -  01 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very simple & tasty chicken and dumpling recipe. I used boneless and skinless thighs and breast because that is all I had. It was a little too salty to my taste so next time I will use reduced sodium soup. I will definitely make this again on a cold winter night.
