Need a yummy meal at your house this week?  We had this for dinner last night and it was soooooo good . . . I'm not sure that I liked it quite as much as much Slow Cooked Chicken and Dumplings, but I think that's only because I love those slow cooker recipes so much!  (And my husband liked this one better. . . )



It did remind me a bit more of a pot pie than chicken and dumplings, but that was mostly because I was too afraid to pull it out of the oven until the top was golden brown.  My hubby absolutely loved it though, and this is one of those recipes we'll definitely enjoy again soon!

  1. 1 stick butter

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Melt butter in 9×13 pan in oven.
  3. Layer cooked chicken over melted butter in the bottom of your baking dish (you can also substitue with turkey, I had turkey leftovers in the freezer so that's what I used!)
  4. Sprinkle with black pepper (optional) and 1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
  5. Mix together milk and Bisquick or flour (we used  self-rising flour and it worked just fine!)
  6. Gently pour Bisquick mixture over chicken.
  7. Whisk chicken broth, sage, bouillion cube and cream of chicken soup, then slowly pour over Bisquick layer (I heated my broth to help disolve the bouillion cube before mixing.)
  8. Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes, until golden brown & bubbly.

    do you suppose cream of mushroom soup would work ok? making this for dinner tonight! yum

    • It might be okay Lisa – I know some folks use them interchangeably! I tend to like cream of chicken soup a little bit more, but I think it’ll be just fine either way. Let me know!
