Wife Jan has been asking lately for her ultimate comfort food, chicken and dumplings. I am always trying to improve even my best recipes—a change of spice here, a new technique there. Sometimes I will walk into the kitchen and simply follow my instincts on a recipe that I have made several times before. Occasionally it works out rather well.

Chicken and dumplings is an classic Southern (U.S.) that is basically a chicken stew topped with biscuit dough. At my house it is a weekday comfort food, whenever someone is stressed out. Although I make this dish once or twice a month, I realized that I took it for granted and have never posted about it.
When I make chicken and dumplings I usually have to use Bisquick. I have tied to make dumplings from scratch, but Jan has never liked my attempts which usually come out as tasteless, dense sinkers. She only likes the fluffy ones produced from Bisquick, which I find way too salty.
