Skillet Chicken & Dumplings1

There is just something about homestyle dishes like this one that makes me hungry! One pot meals & casseroles have got it going on! Everything you need in one place, ready to warm your belly.

I have never actually made a skillet dish like this before, where you cook the biscuit on top of the mixture on the stovetop instead of in the oven. This dinner is a lot like my Chicken Pot Pie Crumble, but with that soft biscuit dumpling on top & slightly different flavors.

I was all nervous about the biscuit cooking all the way through, but it did just fine! I do like the addition of the cream cheese & green onions in this one too. It’s a fall meal that is simple & delicious! Enjoy!
