Chicken & Dumpling Casserole


Happy Thanksgiving!!  

This recipe is the perfect way to use up any leftover turkey you might have from your feast today.  I found the original recipe over at Deep South Dish.  Mary has TONS of amazing Southern recipes.  I gain weight just reading her recipes! Seriously!

I've always been intimidated with the thought of making chicken and dumplings.  It seemed like a lot of work, so when I came across this recipe on Mary's site, I knew I had to give it a try.  It was simple and really quick to make.  It was fabulous! Chicken Legs especially loved it.  I used a rotisserie chicken and this came together in no time.  We will be making a turkey version this weekend!




Chicken & Dumpling Casserole
(Printable Recipe)

3-4 cups of cooked chicken (I use a rotisserie chicken)
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 can Campbell's cream of chicken soup

Preheat oven to 400.

Melt butter in the microwave and pour into bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Shred the chicken and spread it on top of the butter.

Whisk together the milk and the flour, baking powder and salt.  Slowly pour over the chicken.  Don't stir.

Whisk together chicken broth and cream of chicken soup. Pour soup over the flour and milk mixture.  Don't stir.

Bake uncovered for 35 to 45 minutes, or until dumplings are golden brown.

  1. Do you put the baking powder & salt in with the flour? I would think so...

    Thanks for sharing ~ sounds delish!

  3. I'm also a big fan of Mary's site and a big fan of chicken and dumplings. I really like this idea and yours looks mouth watering.

  4. We had this tonight using leftover turkey. I mixed a can of chicken broth with some leftover turkey drippings. YUMMY! When I was in elementary school (back when lunch ladies MADE the food) we had a dish called "turkey in gravy on mashed potatoes". It was my favorite thing, EVER. This recipe was the closest I've ever come to re-creating it.

    I made some creamy mashed potatoes to go with it (using cream cheese and sour cream).

    I accidentally burned the broccoli by roasting it for too long, but no one seemed to miss it.

    Another winner!

    1. We make that a lot every year, we mix 2 parts of gravy with2 cans cream of chicken soup ...sometimes throw in a can of cream of mushroom soup...add chunks of turkey or chicken and put over rice or potatos...serve with peas

  8. My trick to EXTRA QUICK dumplings is to use frozen biscuits. They have the real lard and are perfect for thawing, rolling in a scatter of flour and 2-4 cuts TA DA!! you're already there.

    Love your blog. I just stumbled upon it today.

  9. is there anyway to make this recipe in the crockpot? I will be hosting a dinner next month and want to make this for a group of about 10-12

  10. I just made this but I made a few modifications to make it a bit healthier:

    1. I only used 3/4 of the butter
    2. I used 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup
    3. Instead of using all chicken, I used 2 cups chicken, 1/2 cup peas, 1/2 cup celery, and 1/4 cup chopped carrots. I added these in with the chicken at the beginning.
    4. For a little more flavor, I used 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in the dumpling batter.

    It turned out great and I'm glad I was able to make it a little healthier!

  13. Hello!

    This looks delicious, and even I don't like using canned soup I do so on occasion.
    This is one of the occasions.

    Could you tell me the url for Mary's site?

    Have a Joyful Day :~D

  15. I love the rolled thin dumplings and have been using tortillas to make mine, but I do want to try this. Instead of buying a rotisserie chicken, I'll use the chicken that I make the broth with. And, I'll use self-rising flour instead of plain flour with baking powder. Hopefully, it'll work in a similar manner. (Money's tight, so I need to use what's on hand.)

  16. CharlesR - in case you don't yet have the URL, put your cursor over the name of Mary's blog in the first paragraph and you will see that it is a hyperlink that will take you to Mary's blog.

  18. Well then, Iamwellloved you didn't really make the recipe. I try to judge reviews by who has actually made the recipe. I have this in the oven right now and it smells wonderful!

  23. Loved it! I was a little nervous when I poured the soup/broth mixture over, b/c it looked like a lot of liquid, but it came out great. My husband even liked it - and he's not a chicken fan.

  24. My family devoured this. It was FANTASTIC!!!!! I will have to double this recipe next time. I did my chicken breast in the crockpot while gone for the day and when we got home, it took minutes to whip it together. So So good!

  25. What size can of cream of chicken soup do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  26. This recipe is delicious! plus it's way faster and easier than making chicken and dumplings from scratch like i usually do when i make it, which doesn't happen very often b/c of the amount of work it takes. My husband was very surprised and said it tastes almost just like the made from scratch kind when takes all day to make.

  27. Wonder if you can use buttermilk for the dumpling mix instead of plain milk?

  29. Can't wait to try this - Chicken and Dumplings is one of my top 5 dishes. I'll add a little dry sherry because I've found it makes canned mushroom or cream of chicken soup taste like homemade. For those who love thin rolled dumplings and don't have the time to make them, try frozen ones - either Mary B's or Open Kettle are as good as homemade.

  30. I made this for supper tonight and it was wonderful! My husband and son, who don't like chicken and dumplings, recognized it as such, but agree it is better than the usual C&D. This will be added to my list of "make when they are not here."

  31. I have made this recipe twice in the past two months and my family loves it. I use chicken from a rotisserie chicken and other than deboning the chicken (yuck) this is such a quick and simple recipe that I always have the ingredients on hand. Thanks so much for a delicious and easy weeknight recipe!

  32. Has anyone used Bisquik instead of the flour, etc.? Seems like it would be easier!
