Easy Chicken and Dumpling Casserole
My husband really enjoys this chicken and dumpling casserole because it’s so filling and comforting. He said it reminded him of his mom’s chicken pot pie recipe. I love warm bread, so this chicken casserole with the warm biscuits on top was a winner all around in our family.
As farmers we have chores and responsibilities to work outside every day of the year. Since having my second baby I’ll admit I haven’t been out in the cold weather nearly as much, because I’m usually taking care of her while my husband works outside. But I know that it’s tough work. And I know most chores are harder to get done in cold weather because things get frozen, tractors that run on diesel fuel are harder to start in cold weather and when there are problems it’s harder to fix them in the bone-chilling cold. So I try to do my part in the family by providing warm and delicious food.
Since this casserole has so much liquid and is almost like a thick soup in its consistency. I would recommend scaling the recipe to make the amount that you can enjoy in one meal. Or remove the dumpling or biscuit portion and refrigerate in a separate container so it doesn’t get soggy.
How to Make Chicken & Dumplings Casserole
Lightly grease a 9 x 13″ baking dish and preheat oven to 350°F.
In a stock pot saute onion, celery, garlic and butter until tender.
Add flour, sugar, salt, basil, pepper and broth and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute and then reduce heat.
Add peas and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add cooked chicken and stir everything together. Pour into greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a seperate bowl combine dumplings ingredients. Drop 12 tablespoonfuls of Bisquick mixture onto casserole as pictured above.
Bake, uncovered at 350°F for 30 minutes. Cover and bake for up to 10 more minutes or until dumplings are done.
Serve warm and enjoy!
