This recipe for Skillet Chicken and Dumplings makes an easy weeknight dinner. Ready in 30 minutes, it’s healthy comfort food packed with protein and vegetables!
Just popping in with another quick and easy dinner idea for you! This is kinda like chicken pot pie, without the hassle of the pie part. Also, I debated calling this Chicken and Biscuits because the dumplings are a bit more biscuit-like in my opinion….but either way, they’re delicious. The dumplings cook right in the skillet so you don’t even have to worry about turning on the oven.
Basically, this is comfort food made easy. You just plop everything in a pan and let it simmer for a while. You can handle that, right? For my version, I made homemade dumplings. They’re fairly simple, but if you’re looking for a shortcut you could make an even easier version using something like Bisquick!
So here’s how you make it:
That’s all there is to it! Feel free to add some cayenne pepper or extra spices if you desire! I didn’t have a lid for my cast iron skillet so I just laid a large baking sheet across the top of it!
