Chicken and Dumplings Bake

I can cook by following a recipe, but some people just have that real cooking talent of creating something new with a recipe. Mary at Deep South Dish has taken an old time favorite, chicken and dumplings, and has given it a brand new spin. The dish she has created is actually a casserole, but it tastes like classic chicken and dumplings.




Pour the melted butter into the bottom of the casserole dish, then add a layer of shredded chicken.


Whisk together the flour and the milk and carefully pour over the chicken.


Mix the chicken broth and cream of chicken soup and carefully pour over the chicken next without disturbing the previous layers, do not stir.


Bake uncovered in a 400 degree preheated oven for 35 - 45 minutes, and this is where the magic happens.


The casserole comes out a light golden brown with a crusty top, just yummy. This is the easiest, yet tastiest, chicken and dumplings dish I have ever made. Thanks, Mary, for a super recipe.

  2. That is SO easy, Anita!! Chicken & dumplings is probably my all-time favorite meal. I posted mine on my blog when I first started posting, but it's much more time-consumming. I need to try this one out.

  17. Me too I can only cook by just following the recipe like follwing the chicken and dumplings bake. But there are people who are gifted when it comes to cooking. I bet I can be like them in the future.
