In a large bowl mix Bisquick, flour, parsley, sale, and pepper until combined.
Add 1 cup water and mix. Add the additional water in 1/4 cup increments until a wet dough can be formed. You might not need all of the water or you might need a little more.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 15 seconds.
Reflour the surface and roll the dough out to 1/8' thickness. Flour the top of the dough and with a pizza cutter or knife cut dumplings into strips about 1/2 x 1/2".
In small batches add the dumpling into the boiling stock. Once all are added boil for 10 minutes.
Thinly shred the chicken and add back into the dumpling and broth.
Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

Bring to boil then reduce heat to simmer for 1 to 1.5 hours until chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken and allow to cool until cool enough to handle and remove meat from skin and bones. Remove giblets, peppercorns, bay leave, garlic cloves and onion. Discard.
