Classic Chicken and Dumplings flavor, but in easy-to-make casserole form.
Chicken and Dumplings is classic comfort food. That goes without saying. But this dish takes that classic and mashes it up with another comfort classic – casserole. And it’s a mashup that totally makes sense. See, you get tender chicken in a savory gravy topped with a doughy layer of delight and that’s right in casserole’s wheelhouse. This one happens to be a breeze to make.
10m prep time
1h cook time
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 small white onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
3 cups cooked and shredded chicken

1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, minced, for serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and celery and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour veggies (along with any melted butter) into bottom of baking dish.
Arrange chicken evenly over the top.
In a medium bowl, stir together Bisquick and milk. Pour over the top of the chicken but do not stir.
