Southwestern Chicken & Dumplings

This Salsa Verde Chicken & Dumpling is absolutely delicious. We both took one bite and agreed this was awesome! A quick salsa verde sauce with chicken and cornbread dumplings. This only takes a few minutes to make and tastes great. All you need is a simple salad or some spicy black beans and you are set!

How to Make Salsa Verde Chicken & Dumplings

This is actually a really quick meal and it is made in one pot. I love one-pot meals! To make this recipe, melt butter over medium-high heat in an oven-safe skillet. Add flour. Slowly whisk in chicken broth, salsa verde, and heavy cream. Continue to stir sauce until thick and bubbly. Stir in chicken and remove from heat. Next, make the dumplings. Mix together milk, butter, flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and parsley. Drop tablespoon scoops of dough on top of the chicken mixture and bake until the dumplings are golden brown.

  • I used half of a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken, and this was ready to go in the oven in less than 10 minutes.
  • I used Fonterra Grill Tomatillo Salsa for the salsa verde. It was really good. It didn’t have big chunks in it and wasn’t spicy.
