Recipe of the Week: Easy Chicken & Dumplins

For this week’s recipe I decided to post my Easy Chicken & Dumplin recipe. I posted the recipe previously in an MPM post, but for future linking purposes, and because I love the recipe so much and feel that it deserves its own post, I decided to post it again. (not to mention, it’s a good time to do so, considering that I’m making it again this week!)

Originally I had found a recipe for Chicken Noodle Casserole and whenever I tried it, the taste reminded me a lot of these chicken & dumplins that a friend of ours used to make, so I decided to make a few changes to the recipe and relabel it “Easy Chicken & Dumplins.”

This recipe can be made in very little time, and it also makes a great make ahead meal for those of you who like to do all your cooking the day before.

Easy Chicken & Dumplings

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

1/2 cup milk

2 cans of white chicken OR 3/4 – 1 lb of cooked boneless chicken breast (I like to have some of it in shreds and some it in chunks.)

3 cups of egg noodles

Chicken Broth (optional, I don’t really measure it out, I just pour a little in, about 1/2 cup to a 3/4 cup, but you may put more or less, depending on how thick you want the mixture to be.)

Directions: Cook noodles according to package direction. When finished drain off water. Mix milk soups, and chicken in a large cooking pot. Heat through. Then stir in noodles.

    Hi, Jerri!

    I saw you over at Denise’s blog. I, too, love politics and history.

    I am wondering if you, too, are concerned with the direction we are heading in so many areas.

    I look forward to getting to know you better.

    Mmm, that sounds good! Thanks for sharing it with us.


  18. Thanks for the recipe, it does sound like it would be easy.

  19. Mmmmmm. That looks great! We do something very similar, except instead of noodles we cut up canned biscuits into wedges and drip them into the boiling soup to cook. I may have to try this next week!

  20. Jerri, thanks for commenting on my blog! I love comments. I just have to say that the smothered chicken casserole was a thumbs down from my family. My dh politely asked me to take it out of the recipe book! I didn’t have any because I worked that night, but I’ll believe him!! Also, your chicken and dumplings recipe looks really yummy!!

  21. This sounds like an easy one that all the family would like ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. chicken and dumplins [i love that you spelled it correctly :)] is a personal favorite comfort food. i’m liking your simple yet still delicious version. ๐Ÿ™‚
