Chicken & Dumpling Casserole
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min.
I am not a cook, and have just a few go to meals. My husband, however, is a great cook, so my few go-to meals are meals he thinks taste good. I tried this recipe to surprise him. It was easy for me, a novice. He loved it. Tips for other novices: 1. The base thickens quickly. I took it off heat faster than the recipe states; 2. the biscuit mix (I used bisquick), is kind of runnier than what I thought biscuit dough should be at first. It thickens as it stands. 3. The recipe says to cover and cook another 10 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Try the toothpick after the first 30 minutes. Mine was done. 4. I would call this a pot pie rather than dumplings. My grandmother boils the “drop dumplings” in the base. I assume you could do that instead of baking if you’re a good cook. My husband liked this version better.
I tried this Recipe for the first time last night and it was absolutely amazing I made it for another couple due to Covid and took it to their home as well as enough for me and my spouse and we all thought it was delicious. No issues with the sugar. I cook a lot for me & other people just as a pay it forward kind of thing durning Covid got a deal on chicken thought why not, I used boneless chicken thighs instead of Rotisserie chicken, I diced the thighs into little cubes then I sautéed them in lemon olive oil and basil in a separate pan just till the meat turned white not fully cooked. Then prepared the rest of the ingredients added the chicken mixed it together placed in Pam with dumplings on top baked as instructed it was real good juicy.
Fantastic as is but also forgiving. Adjust to your tastes. Love the idiotic comments of people who decide how bad it is without having it. Easy to fix or adjust. Easier than making chicken and dumplings actually.
Basil and sugar in a chicken and dumplings recipe? No please.
This recipe needs too many tweaks to have great flavor. There are much better recipes out there for chicken and dumplings. (No, I didn't make it, and yes, an experienced cook can tell just by the list of ingredients whether a dish will be good or not.) .
This is delicious comfort food! It's so easy to make, and everyone loved it. I added some thyme and sage to biscuit topping. A definite keeper! VFE
I thought this was a good recipe. I made a few changes. The amount of peas was way too much, and made the casserole too sweet. I sliced a couple carrots and microwaved and added it to the mixture. I added the sugar, but I don't think it was needed, so I' will omit next time. The amount of basil was too much, so I used half basil and half thyme in the sauce. I used 1 1/2 teaspoons in the biscuits, but my husband didn't like it, so next time, I will only add 1 teaspoon verses 2. I cut the salt back a little and added about 1/2 teaspoon of better than bouillon , which tends to be salty. I also used a little more butter since the flour ratio was so high. You need to cook the flour out for about a minute. Quite impressed .
I made this recipe and it was not a hit in my house. I think the basil totally overwhelmed the taste.

I cut this recipe in half to adjust for two. My only adjustment was using a small chicken breast to not overwhelm the gravy and peas and I cut the chicken into small dice . My husband said this is one of the best dishes I’ve ever made!
