This savory casserole is one of my husband's favorites. He loves the fluffy dumplings with plenty of gravy poured over them. The basil adds just the right touch of flavor and makes the whole house smell so good while this dish cooks. —Sue Mackey, Galesburg, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 20, 2014

This was very good. I used sherry in place of sugar also would cut back on the broth by a half of cup sauce was a bit soupy also added peas and carrots mix turned out great. Will make this again. I also used chicken thighs just because white meat tends to be dry. Good go to dinner.

My kids ask for this a lot. I'm almost to the point where I may have to halve this recipe and add it to the total, making one 9 x 13 pan and one 8x8 pan! It's very, very flavorful and the dumplings soak up the gravy just perfectly!
