Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole - Taste of Home

Here is an easy recipe that your entire family will love – at least mine did. I would probably call this chicken and biscuit casserole because now that I live down south I think of dumplings as little flat noodles. Either way, this is going into my fall rotation. It makes enough for leftovers, too.

You could easily add some more veggies. I love peas so I didn’t add any, but you could certainly add some carrots or green beans or broccoli. If you add enough extra vegetables you have a casserole that is a complete meal – score!

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup butter, cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen green peas
  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • ⅔ cup 2% milk
  1. Saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, basil and pepper until blended. Add broth and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened; reduce heat.
  2. Add peas and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  3. To make the dumplings combine the baking mix and basil. Stir in milk with a fork until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls into 12 mounds over chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Cover and bake 10 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean.


  1. All those dumplings are a gorgeous sight! This is the best kind of casserole to snuggle up to on a chilly fall night.

  2. I’ve never actually had chicken and dumplings! But I know I would really like this casserole 😉

  3. Yay! Becky, you are back and I missed a bunch of posts! This dish looks awesome. I love that the dumplings are more biscuits on top than waterlogged.
