Discover the warmth and comfort of homemade Baked Chicken and Dumplings. This classic dish is perfect for chilly days and cozy nights.
In a large ovenproof skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté until they become tender and fragrant.
Season the sautéed vegetables with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir continuously. This will create a roux, which will thicken your dish.
Gradually pour in the chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly. This will form a creamy sauce.
Add the shredded cooked chicken to the skillet. Stir until everything is well combined.
Drop spoonfuls of dumpling dough onto the chicken mixture. Cover the skillet and let it simmer for about 15 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked through.
