It's not about "good" or "bad" - chicken is in general a very good source of healthy protein, boiled or not. Anything is fine in moderation. Chicken provides essential nutrients like protein to your body, and is one of many available choices.
Just make sure that you include all the ingredients, and you're fine. Chicken and dumplings are one of my favorites, and I make them regularly, and as you can see... I'm losing weight just fine. ;) Add more veggies for more nutritional "oomph".
