Sauce: Melt 3 Tbsp of butter over medium-high heat on the stove in an oven safe skillet.  Whisk in the flour. Slowly whisk in chicken broth, salsa verde, and heavy cream. Continue to stir until the sauce gets nice and thick and bubbly. Stir in chicken and remove from heat.

Dumplings: Mix together all ingredients until just combined.  In tablespoon amounts, drop dough on top of the chicken mixture.

Place skillet in preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes on 400 degrees, until cornbread is golden brown.

You will need to use an oven proof skillet – I used a 10 inch cast iron skillet which seems to be the perfect size. If you don’t have a skillet, you could always make the sauce mixture on the stove and then transfer to a casserole dish.  I love that this meal comes right out of the oven bubbling and smelling amazing! We serve it with a simple salad; it’s a meal everyone in my family enjoys.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account.
