3 Easy Dinners: Chicken and Dumplings, Parmesan Chicken, and a Creamy Casserole

November 6, 2014

Easy dinners are a busy parent's best friend, and on busy weeknights we could all use a little help in the kitchen. But “quick” doesn’t mean skimping on flavor or hitting the drive-thru. These three chicken recipes are all family-friendly, easy to prepare, delicious, and best of all, home cooked! A creamy mushroom and chicken casserole, crispy Parmesan and Dijon-crusted chicken breasts, and a comforting chicken and dumplings all get the thumbs up from us.

Chicken Gloria Casserole
A splash of sherry (yes, the kind Grandma used to sip!) takes this family-friendly chicken casserole recipe from good to super great!  Note: The recipe calls for cream sherry, but we’ve used cooking sherry (a bit on the drier side. Look for it with vinegars in your supermarket) and it’s just as delicious.

Parmesan Dijon Chicken
5 ingredients are all you need to make this scrumptious chicken dish. Serve it up with buttery noodles or creamy mashed potatoes and a big green salad or roasted vegetables. TIP: Have leftovers? Slice the chicken into strips and toss them in a salad for lunch.

Quick Chicken and Dumplings
Who can say no to a comforting bowl of classic chicken and dumplings? We can’t! This easy recipe takes just 10 minutes to prepare and only 30 to cook!
