Chicken With Sour-Cream-and-Bisquick Dumplings

This is one of the foods I call "Southern comfort food." It's a nice hot dish to serve when the weather is cold.

I find that sometimes after I bake a nice, big, plump chicken, there will be some left over. This is a good way to use those leftovers. I have used chicken that has been boiled, but I personally like the flavor of baked chicken better. This recipe calls for sour cream, which is a little unusual but really adds to the texture and the flavor.


  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) chicken gravy
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 ½ cups cooked and cubed chicken
  • 1 small package of frozen English peas or mixed vegetables of your choice
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Seasoning of your choice
