Dumpling Soup in the Can Cooker Jr.

The Can Cooker Jr. is one of the coolest little cooking pots I've used. I found the inspiration for this recipe on the Can Cooker Website and made a few adaptations.


1 (32 ounce carton) Chicken Broth

1 pound Chicken, Wild Turkey, Squirrel or Other Game Meat, cut into bite sized pieces

1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

Salt/Pepper to taste

1 (10.5 ounce can) Condensed Cream of chicken Soup

3 medium Carrots, chopped

2 Celery Ribs, diced

1 small Onion, diced

Homemade Biscuits

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 cup cold sour cream

1/3 cup cold milk

4 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Add chicken broth and chicken or other meat into @CanCooker Jr. Season meat with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Cook over medium/low heat for 10 minutes. 

  2. Add remaining ingredients, except for biscuits. Cook over medium/low heat for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the milk, sour cream, and melted butter. Use a folding motion to combine and form a dough then pat biscuits flat on a cutting board and cut into pieces. 

  4. Drop strips one at a time into chicken mixture, avoiding touching. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent dumplings from sticking.
