This recipe is the perfect way to use up any leftover turkey you might have from your Thanksgiving feast today.  

I’ve always been intimidated by the thought of making chicken and dumplings.  It seemed like a lot of work, so when I came across this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try.  It was simple and really quick to make.  It was fabulous! Chicken Legs especially loved it.  I used a rotisserie chicken and this came together in no time.  We will be making a turkey version this weekend!

  1. I just made this but I made a few modifications to make it a bit healthier:

    1. I only used 3/4 of the butter
    2. I used 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup
    3. Instead of using all chicken, I used 2 cups chicken, 1/2 cup peas, 1/2 cup celery, and 1/4 cup chopped carrots. I added these in with the chicken at the beginning.
    4. For a little more flavor, I used 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in the dumpling batter.

    It turned out great and I'm glad I was able to make it a little healthier!

  2. is there anyway to make this recipe in the crockpot? I will be hosting a dinner next month and want to make this for a group of about 10-12

  3. My trick to EXTRA QUICK dumplings is to use frozen biscuits. They have the real lard and are perfect for thawing, rolling in a scatter of flour and 2-4 cuts TA DA!! you're already there.

    Love your blog. I just stumbled upon it today.

  4. This is my kind of food… I almost took a bite out of my computer screen looking at these photos. I would love, love, love this.

  5. We had this tonight using leftover turkey. I mixed a can of chicken broth with some leftover turkey drippings. YUMMY! When I was in elementary school (back when lunch ladies MADE the food) we had a dish called "turkey in gravy on mashed potatoes". It was my favorite thing, EVER. This recipe was the closest I've ever come to re-creating it.

    I made some creamy mashed potatoes to go with it (using cream cheese and sour cream).

    I accidentally burned the broccoli by roasting it for too long, but no one seemed to miss it.

    Another winner!

    1. We make that a lot every year, we mix 2 parts of gravy with2 cans cream of chicken soup …sometimes throw in a can of cream of mushroom soup…add chunks of turkey or chicken and put over rice or potatos…serve with peas

  6. I'm also a big fan of Mary's site and a big fan of chicken and dumplings. I really like this idea and yours looks mouth watering.
