Chicken and Dumplings Casserole

This easy Chicken and Dumplings Casserole is pure, traditional comfort food, lightened up and so simple to make!

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons light butter, I use Land O’Lakes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 medium ribs of celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 lb cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 cup self-rising flour, (if you don’t have self-rising flour you can mix together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder, and ½ teaspoon of salt as a substitute)
  • 1 cup fat free milk
  • 1 (10.75 oz) can of Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Chicken condensed soup
  • 2 cups reduced sodium nonfat chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist a 9x13 casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and carrots and sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper. Stir together to coat. Saute the vegetables for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Transfer the vegetables to the prepared baking dish and spread in a single layer across the bottom of the dish. Top the vegetables with a layer of the shredded cooked chicken.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the self-rising flour and milk and stir together until well combined and smooth. Pour the mixture evenly over the top of the chicken layer. Do NOT mix the layers together!
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper until fully combined and smooth. Pour this mixture over the top of the other layers in the baking dish. Do NOT mix or stir the layers!
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
