What Kelli’s Making: Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

Kelli called me the other day and said, “Mom, I tried a new recipe.”  I asked her if it was good and she said she hadn’t tasted it yet.  I told her to quickly snap some pictures and if I was good send them to me and I’d write a blog post about it.

She ended up sending pictures so I’m going to assume it’s good.  I laughed when I saw the picture of the recipe.  I immediately knew what recipe book it was from as I make the recipe at the top of the picture all of the time…the Barbecued Green Beans.  They are so good.

This recipe comes from an Amish recipe book we both have and love.

The recipe Kelli made was the Chicken and Dumpling Casserole.


Kelli said that she used a rotisserie chicken for the meat.


Here is how it looks all finished and ready to eat.  I think it looks yummy but the true test is will Georgia eat it.


Kelli took some really cute pictures of her trying it…

The verdict is she ate it.


That has to mean it’s pretty good as this little spitfire can be a bit of a picky eater.  I take that back, she’s a moody eater.  One day she’ll eat everything.  The next day we can serve her the exact same food and she won’t touch it.  Oh Georgie.  The only thing she will consistently eat every time…cottage cheese.


So if you’re looking for some good food that feels a little more like a fall, comfort food type meal, you might have to give this a try…after all, it’s is Georgia approved.

    I remember eating chicken & dumplings casserole when I was a child. My mother always sneaked in broccoli as I would only eat green veggies if it had cheese or what I thought was cheese, hmmm. cute pics of Georgia

    That’s hilarous about Georgie eating cottage cheese when often she won’t anything else. My DH was always an eat anything kind of eater EXCEPT for cottage cheese. He wouldn’t even try it until he finally caved and then he proclaimed it OK. Don’t know why no cottage cheese because he grew up eating some disgusting stuff like cow lungs, sheep head, birds from the front yard. UGH!

    The little Cutie looks like she is enjoying the casserole, so that is good enough for me to try it. Thanks for the recipe!

    My grandson Elliott is the same way. One day he loves green beans and chicken, the next, he won’t touch it. Same thing with bananas. But he will eat cottage cheese until he’s blue in the face. Georgie is such a cutie!
    You gotta love em at her age!!

    I make this dish almost the same way except using canned biscuits cut into small triangles. My grandkids love cutting up the veggies and biscuits. One more thing…in the last photo of Georgie, I can’t believe how much she looks like you!! She is a such a cutie.

    Just thought I’d mention that I made the barbecued green beans after you showed it in a previous post and my husband and I both loved the recipe. Very tasty.
