4 Ingredient Chicken Pot Pie and More Easy Chicken Recipes

November 10, 2014

Fall is in full swing and winter seems to be knocking on the door, just waiting to get in. What better way to take the chill off than a comforting meal? My grandma used to make the best ever Chicken with Buttermilk Herb Dumplings and I make this dish now for my family. Keep it soupy or thicken it up to make it even more hearty. Either way, it's a pleaser.  Chicken Marsala and Chicken Cordon Bleu (try the baked version below) are also classic comfort foods that will warm you up in a jiffy! Read on for more comforting chicken recipes I'm sure you'll love.

Chicken smothered in a creamy, Marsala wine-spiked sauce is a lovely thing indeed. It's a simple yet flavorful dish that takes just minutes to make. Try it served over rice or buttery noodles.

Chicken piccata, with its simple sauce of capers and lemon juice, is definitely a dish you should add to your chicken recipes repertoire! It's full of fresh and bold flavor that goes great with pasta.

Tortilla Soup with Chicken

This tortilla soup recipe is made in the slow cooker, which deepens the flavors of the spices, but it can easily be done on the stovetop if you need to get dinner ready in a flash. I love to place bowls of various garnishes - like avocado, lime, diced onion, fresh cilantro, cheese - in the center of the table so that everyone can build their own bowl. Kids love it!

Chicken and Rice Casserole with Broccoli
This classic chicken, rice and broccoli casserole has been around for ages, and it's no wonder - everyone loves it! It's a great way to use up leftover chicken (or try turkey after Thanksgiving!), and is ready in under 30 minutes.

Using a store-bought pie crust makes this pot pie recipe a cinch! The recipe calls for canned chicken, but leftover chicken is great too!

Us kids used to love when grandma made her chicken and dumplings. Sometimes it she made it more soup-like, other times it was thick and creamy. I loved both versions, as long as I had numerous fluffy dumplings piled on top! This is classic comfort food!

A creamy mushroom sauce is a deliciously elegant way to jazz up chicken. A splash of dry white wine adds even more depth of flavor to this already tasty dish.

I simply love this baked version of chicken cordon bleu and sometimes play around with the filling - ham, prosciutto, different cheeses. Whatever the filling, it's always a hit!
