Simple, easy and cheesy! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
- 4-5 large chicken breast, boneless
- 1 stick real butter
- 1 1/2 c self-rising flour
- 1 1/2 c milk
- 1/2 c sour cream
- 3 c chicken broth (reserve for further use)
- 1 can(s) cream of celery soup
- 1/2 tsp savory (rosemary or thyme may be used)
- 4 Tbsp ,real butter
- salt and pepper to taste
1NOTE: ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, use self-rising flour. I DO NOT recommend using margarine, low-fat or fat-free items as this will change the texture and taste of the dish.
2Place chicken, 4 tablespoons butter and salt and pepper in a large stock pot and cover with water, at least 2 inches over the chicken. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to simmer and boil chicken until tender, about 30 to 45 minutes. When chicken is done remove from broth and let cool. Reserve broth. When cool, shred chicken into pieces.
3Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt 1 stick butter and pour into 3 quart baking dish. Spread chicken on top of butter. In a separate bowl, whisk flour and milk together and carefully pour evenly over top of chicken, scrape bowl. In the same bowl whisk together 2 cups of the reserved chicken broth, cream of celery soup, sour cream and savory. Carefully pour this mixture over top of chicken and flour mixture.
4Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a golden brown. Let cool for about 15 minutes. Then pour the remaining 1 cup reserved chicken broth evenly over the top. Let stand for about 5 minutes or until the broth has “soaked” into the chicken and dumplins.
