This is the BEST and easiest chicken and dumpling recipe. So good! I take the dumpling mix and do several smaller dumplings instead of 4 big ones.

Hi Ryan, I believe you can use Bisquick Baking Mix in place of Jiffy. You can also make homemade baking mix to replace the Jiffy mix in this recipe. In a medium bowl, add 3/4 cups flour, 1/3 teaspoons salt, 1/2 tablespoons baking powder, 1/8 cup shortening. Cut in shortening with pastry blender until combined and no large pieces of shortening remain.
