Of all the meals I’ve prepared for my family, chicken and dumplings continues to be an all time favorite. It’s a dish that is always easy to prepare, using a few simple ingredients and leaves me feeling full and cozy. While I do like to cheat and use cut up refrigerated biscuits sometimes, I always prefer Bisquick dumplings because they cook up light and fluffy.

We did change up our recipe a little bit this time by incorporating some fresh garden herb flavors. The best part was all I had to do was step in my backyard to snip a branch of fresh rosemary for this dish.

This also happens to be a recipe that you can change to suit the needs of your family. Fortunately, my toddlers aren’t very picky so I was able to incorporate a lot of different vegetables into the dish.

  1. Oh yum that looks so good! I wonder if this is something that my boys would eat. I’m going to have to try it.
    Beautiful rosemary too!

  2. Oh that looks like something completely new that I could try with my family. Yum!

  3. My rosemary is just teeny little baby things right now. So yeah I’m going to come to your house and steal some…and while I’m at it some dumplings too!

  4. WOW. I have not had chix anf dumplings since I was a kid, and have never made them.
    This changes now.
    I just planted an herb garden that has rosemary in it and now we will be trying this soon!
    Thanks for sharing!

    This looks like a really good Chicken and Dumplings recipe! I’ve been searching for one because I’ve been wanting to make it, but they all seem so plain so I’ve never bothered. I already printed your recipe and I plan on making it soon. Keep your great recipes coming!! :)

  8. Hmmm, I wonder if my boys would eat this. Is it sad that I’ve never made chicken and dumplings? I think it’s because we never ate it growing up, and I have a tendency to cook like my mom. Your rosemary looks awesome, how are the rest of your herbs doing?

    • Tiff, that’s funny you mention that because I cook exactly like my mom too. If the kids like pot pies or chicken n biscuits, they’d love this too.

      Oh and the herbs are taking off! I’ll be updating again a week from now and can’t wait to show you guys.

  9. Mmmm, this looks good! I like the additions you’ve made to the basic recipe. Our grandson loves chicken and dumplings, I think I’ll try this the next time, thanks!

  10. I’m always looking for something to use my rosemary in. I have two small bushes right now and want more. I tried growing some from seeds, unsuccessfully. After bringing a clipping in and putting it in a small vase (I love to smell it) that I discovered the way to root rosemary. Now I have several cuttings in glasses sitting on my counter. I can’t wait to plant them.

    Can’t wait to make this recipe.


  1. [...] Over the past several weeks I’ve begun exploring new flavors with the help of my herb farm which are not only adding low calorie flavors to my dishes but are allowing me to experiment with herbs I’ve never tried before. I started with a summertime favorite, Herb Deviled Eggs, and kicked up the old recipe with a fresh burst of earthy flavors using fresh chives, flat leaf parsley and cilantro. The best part was being able to step out my backdoor and pluck the herbs right from the raised bed farm. My kids especially loved the updated chicken-n-dumpling dish that I kicked up a notch with fresh rosemary dumplings. [...]
