To begin making Stove Top Chicken and Dumplings I diced a yellow onion and then fried it in a large pot with a bit of olive oil and minced garlic over medium heat.  About 5 minutes.

While the onion was cooking I cut up some cooked chicken.

Next I combined some chicken broth, almond milk, chicken gravy mix, corn starch, salt and pepper in a large measuring cup.

Once the onions had softened I added the liquid into the pot.  I continued cooking on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the liquid boiled and thickened.  About ten minutes.

Then it was time to add some frozen vegetables and cut up cooked chicken to the thickened sauce in the large pot.

I brought the mixture back to a low boil.  About 10 minutes.

At any time during the cooking process you can prepare your dumplings by dumping some gluten free Bisquick and almond milk into a mixing bowl.

Mix the two ingredients together until just combined.  The dough will be wet and sticky.

I like large dumplings so I dropped the batter into the liquid using a 2 tbsp scoop.  Using this scoop produced about 18 dumplings.

I made sure to drop the dumplings gently into the liquid in the pot.

I turned the burner down to simmer after adding the dumplings and contined cooking with the lid off for 15 minutes.  If you make smaller dumplings you can probably cook for 10 minutes with the lid off.

Then I cooked the dumplings for another 10 -15 minutes with the lid on the pot.

Serve up your Stove Top Chicken and Dumplings with a large ladle.  One thing to be careful of when serving is not to add all the liquid to the first few bowls.  You want liquid to be evenly dispersed between servings.

Stove Top Chicken and Dumplings is an easy dinner recipe that will satisfy appetites and fill bellies with good old fashioned comfort food!

This recipe is loaded with ingredients and so tasty that you will want to add it to your menu rotation year round.
