  3. Add in chopped chicken breast, and frozen peas. Stir.
  4. Cut raw biscuits into six equal pieces. Form dough pieces into balls.
  5. Drop dumplings into soup. Stir gently, letting soup return to simmer.
  6. Add spices. Stir in 2% milk.
  7. Soup is ready to serve when potatoes and peas are soft, dumplings are steamed and slightly expanded, and are resting at top of soup.
  8. Scoop into serving bowls.
Tips:
  1. This thick soup would make a great pot pie filling. Bake biscuits to package directions. Slice biscuits in half and place on top of soup in individual serving bowls.
