The following recipe came from a FB friend. I made it for a church dinner and it was well received. It's easy and quite good. I made it with rotisserie chicken, but next time I plan to use poached chicken breasts, and add extra seasoning. I also found that it took 45-50 minutes for the top to brown well.

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

The secret of this is not to stir anything. That's what makes your dumplings. When you dish it out, you have your dumplings on top.

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded ( I use a store bought rotisserie chicken)
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 stick of butter
2 cups Bisquick
2 cups whole milk
1 can cream of chicken soup (the herbed cream of chicken soup if you can find it)
3 teaspoons of chicken granules (I use Wylers)
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt or more to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Layer 1 - In 9 x 13 casserole dish, melt 1/2 stick of butter. Spread shredded chicken over butter. Sprinkle black pepper and dried sage over this layer. Do not stir.

Layer 2 - In small bowl, mix milk and Bisquick. Slowly pour all over chicken. Do not stir.

Layer 3 - In medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups of chicken broth, chicken granules and soup. Once blended, slowly pour over the Bisquick layer. Do not Stir.

Bake casserole for 30-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

I love your newsletter and all the love (and yum) that goes into it. I have been a devoted fan for over a decade and have copy/pasted hundreds of delicious recipes. In the last couple of weeks, however, when I try to paste recipes from the newsletter into my Word documents, Microsoft shuts down. I can copy/paste other items from my mailbox, but for some reason I can no longer c/p recipes from your site. I have tried copying directly from the archives outside of my mailbox and it fails that way, too. Do you have any suggestions? I would hate to have to copy recipes in writing---there are so many good ones!

One way to easily print out the recipes is to go the print page for the recipe. Using the Click Here to Print this Recipe isolates the recipe where it is the only one one the page.  Under the recipe is a link to print that page with only the recipe on it. Although takes me an additional 2 hours to make these pages it is a more way convenient to print the recipes. On the print page you can press the print link below the recipe.  It brings up the print options. Press the cancel on the print options page and it will go away. Behind the print option screen is the recipe without any formatting.. You may then and copy and paste the recipe. Many people do use this print page to copy and paste the text into their recipe or word processor software because there is no formatting on the recipe.
