Chicken and Dumpling Casserole


The secret of this is not to stir anything. That's what makes your dumplings. When you dish it out, you have your dumplings on top.

 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded ( you can use a store bought rotisserie chicken)

 2 cups chicken broth

 1/2 stick of butter

 2 cups Bisquick

 2 cups whole milk

 1 can cream of chicken soup (the herbed cream of chicken soup if you can find it)

 3 teaspoons of chicken granules (Bullion)

 1/2 teaspoon dried sage

 1 teaspoon black pepper

 1/2 teaspoon of salt or more to taste


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

 Layer 1 - Melt 1/2 stick of butter in 9 x 13 casserole dish. Spread the shredded chicken over butter. Sprinkle black pepper and dried sage over this layer. Again do not stir.

 Layer 2 - In a small bowl, mix the milk and Bisquick. Slowly pour evenly all over chicken. Again do not stir.

 Layer 3 - In medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups of chicken broth, the chicken granules and the chicken soup. Once all mixed, slowly pour over the Bisquick layer. Again do not Stir.

 Bake the casserole for 30-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown


Very good
