This casserole offers a twist on your usual creamy, savory chicken dish! Chicken Dumpling Casserole essentially turns the entire meal into one giant chicken dumpling, with a layer of tender dumpling-like dough enveloping shredded, juicy chicken. The top of Chicken Dumpling Casserole is golden-brown and just bursting with rich chicken flavor, almost gravy-like in its depth. It may be a different kind of casserole than you're used to, but it's sure to become a favorite!
