Easy Chicken and Dumplings

My sister gave me this recipe and she is a very good cook. If I had known dumplings could be this easy I would have made them more often.
1 24oz of Mary B's frozen dumplings-these are usually in the frozen section with biscuits
2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
4 to 5 chicken breast half's
salt and pepper
Boil your chicken, in soup like broiler, until done then remove from broth (DO NOT THROW AWAY).
Remove dumplings from freezer about 15 min. before you're ready to place in broth.
Cut dumpling strips in 1/2 inch pieces then drop in broth when the broth starts boiling. Let them cook in boiling broth for about 20 min, stir constantly. Check to make sure they are not sticking to bottom, if they are turn your heat down.
Add soup to dumplings and stir.
While dumplings are cooking cut you're chicken in small pieces then add to dumplings.
Stir well, let the water boil until dumplings are the thickness you like.
Add salt and pepper as you go and add more if needed.
WARNING this recipe makes a lot so you may want to half the recipe or invite some friends over.
