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 http://deepsouthdish.com/.
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.
