My family really enjoyed this recipe! I think I am going to add even more vegetables next time!
Chicken and Dumpling Casserole
- Broth can be canned or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat (350 degrees in an electric skillet) and saute onions, carrots and celery until soft.
- Add a small amount of unheated broth to the flour and stir until smooth. Slowly mix in remaining broth and add to skillet. Stir over medium heat as the mixture thickens.
- Add the chicken, peas, salt and pepper. Heat on low while making dumplings.
- Dumplings: sift the flour, baking powder and salt together into a mixing bowl.
- Add the egg to the milk and beat until well blended. Stir into the flour until well combined.
- Pour the chicken mixture into a lightly oiled or sprayed casserole dish. Drop dumpling dough by spoonfuls onto chicken mixture. (makes about 8 dumplings)
- Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the dumplings are golden brown.
- Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

My husband really enjoyed this recipe!
This was SO good! It tasted like home made chicken pot pie. My dumplings had too much liquid in them, so I will do a bit less milk next time, but it didn't matter for the casserole -- the mix spread out and made a "dumpling crust" across the top, and it was SO GOOD.
Has anyone made this with cooked turkey? I'm going to give it a try after the holidays, with leftover turkey. Update will follow. :-)
Update: This recipe is just as good with leftover turkey. I was much more careful while measuring the milk for the dumplings, and they turned out fine -- very "dumpling-ish" and tasty.
My wife loved this recipie! I am going to make it again soon.
I added frozen corn, and a few heaping spoonfuls of mashed potato flakes to thicken the sauce. I also use Bisquick instead of the buscuit recipe, saves time! A little shredded chedder cheese in the Bisquick dough is really good. Great recipe!!
Adding a couple of Tablespoons of dried tarragon to the dumpling batter gives this dish a rich flavor:)
