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.
