Easy Chicken and Dumplings

6 cups chicken broth
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (10 ¾ oz.)
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 can Pillsbury Grands Southern Homestyle Buttermilk biscuits
2 medium carrots, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped

In a large Dutch oven, heat broth, chicken, soup and poultry seasoning to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium-high; return to low boil. On lightly floured surface, roll or pat each biscuit to 1/8 inch thickness; cut into 1/2 inch wide strips. Drop strips, one at a time, into boiling chicken mixture. Add carrots and celery. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 15-20 minutes, stirring occasional to prevent dumplings from sticking.
