Chicken & Dumplings Casserole


The way this Chicken & Dumpling Casserole is made just blows my mind! The dumplings make themself while the casserole bakes in the oven. There is no rolling dough or buying canned biscuits with this recipe. I will definitely be making this again it was delicious!

Boil the chicken over medium heat for one hour covered.



Drain the chicken reserving the broth.

Shred the chicken.

I shred mine by putting it in my mixer bowl and turning on my mixer.

This shreds the chicken in a few seconds.



Spray a three quart casserole dish with cooking spray.

Place the chicken on the bottom of the dish.



Whisk together the flour, milk and butter.



Pour the mixture over the chicken.

Do Not Stir!



In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken

broth, soup, salt and pepper.



Slowly pour the mixture over the chicken but DO NOT STIR.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 45-55 minutes.



Let the dish sit a few minutes before serving.

  1. I love chicken and dumplings. I never blog about chicken and dumplings because mine never turn out right. I still have some work to do on the recipe and technique

  2. You could open your own school!
    I guess yours IS an online school

    I hope advertisers pay you well.
    You reside above most cooking blogs.

    I have bookmarked you

    • Ash thank you so much! I wish I got paid well…hahaha I make enough to cover the cost of my blog/website. That was really all I was hoping for because I love inspiring people. You are so kind and thank you for making my day. It’s people like you that make all the work worth it!

  3. Chicken and dumplings without all the fuss? It’s almost too good to be true. It’s one of those dishes that I never make because I don’t feel like actually making the dumplings. Definitely adding this to my list of weeknight recipes

  4. In the ingredients under the pictures …it mentions mayo. But I don’t not see mayo in the listing of ingredients. Am I going crazy ?

  5. Girl, I made some chicken and dumplings in my slow cooker a few weeks ago. I had a taste for it,found a recipe on Pinterest, and BOOM! I’m glad I found another version because slow cooker takes a loooonnnggg time. Cant wait to try this!!!i

    • Also pat your chicken down so the dumplings stay on top of it. When you take it out, use a spatula and section off the servings so the dumpling layer stays together. We thought the dish had an amazing taste but everyone has their own taste. I thought it would be really good as an open face sandwich or even over toast too! Thanks for letting me know! This recipe came from an Amish recipe Facebook page.

      • Open faced sandwich would have been good. Mark (who was a chef for a bed &Breakfast and a chef for a high class restaurant, says that we will try it again only he said try putting soups over chicken, then adding dumpling mixture on top of that. Bake covered for a while, then uncover. He also put cheddar cheese on his and said it was great. I thought it was good, great. I ate quite a bit of it and was very satisfied (the perfect comfort food on a snowy night. I hope you have a great Easter.

      • Taking care of grandkids while their mom is on vacation. So much fun! Always have my 7 year old granddaughter cooking with me…even more fun!

  6. Thanks for joining My Little Bird blog. The chicken and dumplings look great. I will have to tweak the receipt a bit because l’m Paleo at the moment. I think it can be done.

  7. First of all, thanks for following my blog! I had a Chicken Pot Pie on my menu for tonight, but after reading your blog, I think I will change it up for your Chicken & Dumplings!! So glad you found me.

    • Thanks I look forward to seeing what all you will be posting! When you make this, pack the chicken down and when you serve it, use a spatula trying to keep the casserole in tact like lasagna. Enjoy!
