    1. Boil chicken in a large pot until completely cooked through and no longer pink inside, about 15 to 25 minutes.
    2. While chicken is cooking, wash and peel carrots and potatoes and cut into bite size pieces.
    3. When chicken is cooked, remove from water and place carrots and potatoes in water to boil. Stir in cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup and simmer all together.
    4. Let chicken cool, then cut into cubes. When potatoes become soft/tender, add pasta and cubed chicken to pot. When pasta is tender (after 8 to 10 minutes), add scone dough (dumplings) by pulling dough into chunks and dropping into the pot.
    5. Simmer all together for 10 to 15 minutes or until dumplings are cooked and fluffy inside.

    This was good ! I used a one pan method... I cubed skinless chicken breasts and sauteed it in large oven safe saute pan, took them out when almost cooked through. In the same pan I sauteed cubed potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, and 2 minced cloves of garlic, when vegetables are almost tender I added in 1 can butter beans and the 2 cans of soups plus 2 cups of water or you can use low sodium chicken broth. Simmered it all together until everything is tender, and topped with refrigerated biscuits and simmered for another 7-8 minutes. I put the whole thing in the oven to broil until gloden brown and a little crispy on top of the biscuits. It was sensational !  -  15 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was pretty good, a bit bland, but I did have to add a lot of liquid so that might have something to do with it. My toddler ate enthusiactically so I can't complain, but I think I will try a different recipe next time I'm in the mood for dumplings. I am keeping this one on file, though; with a little personalization it could be great.  -  11 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
