Chicken & Dumpling Bake

My favorite recipe for Chicken & Dumplings happens to be found here.   However,  when I saw this recipe awhile back at Anita's blog at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen , I  knew I wanted to try it.  I have made it twice &  we really love it!  If you want a quick, easy, homey meal, you need to try this.  Credit for the original recipe comes from

3-4 cups cooked chicken
2 cups chicken stock or broth
1/2 stick unsalted butter (1/4 cup)                            
1 cup self-rising flour (see NOTE below)
1 cup milk
1 can cream of chicken soup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large,  microwave-safe measuring cup, melt the butter in the microwave & pour into the bottom of a 9 x 13" baking dish.  Shred the chicken & spread that on top of the butter.

In the same measuring cup, whisk together the milk  & flour.  S-l-o-w-l-y pour that over the chicken.  Don't stir this up!

Put the stock or broth in the measuring cup & whisk in the cream of chicken soup.  Very carefully pour that over the flour & milk mixture and don't stir!!

Bake uncovered  for 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown. 

NOTE:  To make your own self-rising flour, mix together 1 1/2 t. baking powder, 1/2 t. salt & 1 cup flour.  This is a great substitute & you never have to have a whole bag of self-rising flour sitting around.

  2. We enjoy this dish a lot too! It's so easy to make and really does taste like chicken and dumplings!

  3. I've never made Chicken & Dumplings in any other way than the traditional method, but this looks delicious and so much easier. I'm definitely going to have to give it a try!
