I adore homemade chicken and dumplings and usually I reach for my tried and true recipe for homemade chicken 'n dumplings whenever the craving hits. While that recipe is easy, it is a bit messy and time consuming rolling out each individual dumpling.
This magic chicken and dumplings casserole recipe gives you all of the flavors of the classic version with a lot less labor involved. The dumpling mixture is spread on top of the chicken - kind of like a cobbler- creating a dumpling-like crust on the top of the dish.
Being a die-hard lover of homemade chicken and dumplings, I was skeptical, but my entire family raved over this recipe. You still get the buttermilk-y tang in the flavor of the dumplings and all of the tastes in the from-scratch version are intact.
Chicken and dumplings were usually a weekend treat meal due to the time it takes to roll up, and clean up after, all of those little dumplings. Now we have a version that's perfect for busy weeknights!
I'll always have a special place in my heart (and tummy) for the real stuff, but I beg you to give this casserole a try. You won't regret it, it's SO GOOD! Enjoy!Print
