Chicken and dumplings is classic comfort food, and nothing’s more comforting than knowing it’s assembled and ready to go in your freezer. Homemade noodles are so easy to make and will impress your family and friends.

1
medium carrot, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 1/2 cup)
1
celery rib, halved lengthwise, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 1/2 cup)
1/4
cup finely chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
3/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4

1/3
cup milk
1
tablespoon butter
1

  • 1 In medium bowl, mix chicken, carrot, celery and parsley.

Using knife, cut rolled-out dumpling dough into 1 1/2x1-inch strips.

Expert Tips

To make this recipe even easier, you can substitute the homemade dumplings with 4 Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (from a 16.3-oz can), each cut into 8 pieces.

1/3 cup frozen sweet peas, added to the freezer bag with the chicken and vegetables, makes a nice addition to this soup.
