There's a really easy way to make it:

Here's what I do.
Get a couple cans of the lowfat cream of chicken soup, and buy a bag of frozen carrots, peas and pearl onions. Also, grab a box of the lf or regular bisquik.

Cut up some chicken breasts into chunks and cook them with a little bit of butter and garlic in the bottom of a big dutch oven. Add the bag of frozen veggies and give them a little toss around til theyre thawed but not really cooked. Slap a bay leaf in there too, for good measure. Throw in the cans of soup--I use 2 cans of campbells lf cream of chicken and one can of lf cream of celery for a little extra tasty--ness-- don't bother with fat free varieties, they taste scary!

Stir it all around--it'll look like the inside of a chicken pot pie. Look at the box of bisquik--there's directions on there for how much mix/ milk to use for dumplings. Throw the dumplings on top of the soup while it's simmering, and they cook through pretty quickly.

Voila!

Or--you could always just make him take you to Cracker Barrel if there's one near you--Their chicken and dumplings is super yummy!!

This is a good recipe, http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._26265,00.html
I leave out the bay leaf though, I dont like it in chicken and dumplings.
Also you can buy the premade dumplings in the frozen food sections of some grocery stores. One brand is Annie B's and I cant remember the other brand. I always use those instead of making the dumplings, much easier and they taste just like the ones you make yourself.
I grew up in the south and that's one thing my kids love to get when they visit their Grandmother.

It's not too hard Susie! Take your chicken and boil it in watered down broth or boullion. Season your broth so the herbs are infused in the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked, pull it out and it should pretty much fall off the bone, but let it cool before you cut it up. (Should take 45 minutes to an hour to cook, I think.) Add more water/broth to the broth, and add your veggies to cook in it too. When you get the chicken de-boned and cubed, put it back in the broth. When the veggies are about done or done, add your dumplings. I cheat and use Bisquick too, but they always turn out good! The excess starch from the dough will thicken up your broth, but if you want it thicker mix up a bit of corn starch and cold water and add that to the boiling broth. When the dumplings float, it's done.

Actually, I used the recipe on Bisquick box for Chicken & Dumplings.
You can probably even find it on the web.
