Gluten Free Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

Oh boy, oh boy, we really love this recipe at our house.

1/2 Cup chopped onion

1/2 Cup chopped celery

1/4 Cup butter, cubed

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/3 Cup corn starch

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon pepper

4 Cups chicken broth

1 package (10 oz) frozen green peas or other vegetable of choice

4 Cups cubed cooked chicken (Oh, please cook/saute the chicken in butter. It will taste so much better that way.)

 

Dumplings

2 Cups gluten free biscuit/baking mix

2 teaspoons dried basil

2/3 cup milk

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In large saucepan, saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Add garlic. Cook 1 minute longer. Add sugar, salt, basil and pepper. In separate bowl, mix cornstarch and broth. Add broth mixture to onion and celery mixture; bring to boil. Cook until it thickens. Stir in chicken. Bring to boil. Pour mixture into greased 9×13 baking dish.
  2. For dumplings, in a bowl, combine baking mix and basil. Stir in milk with a fork until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls over chicken mixture.
  3. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Cover and bake 10 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean.
