Salsa Verde Chicken & Dumplings

(Adapted from Plain Chicken)


3 Tbsp butter
5 Tbsp flour
1 1/3 cup chicken broth
1 1/4 cup salsa verde
1/2 cup heavy cream
12 oz cooked, chopped chicken (I used half of a rotisserie chicken!)

2/3 cup milk
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp dried parsley

How to make green chile chicken and dumplings Hip2Save


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.

    I knew that this looked familiar because I subscribe to Plain Chicken newsletter and just got this recipe last week.

    • Erin

      I don’t think any of the recipes are original.

      • Rebe

        I actually prefer when the recipes are adapted from other already tested recipes. Love this new section, love Lina, love hip2save and Collin. Thank you!

      • Maria

        I haven’t tried this yet, but I love recipes that are tried and true…doesn’t need to be an original to be delicious!

        • Micka

          The recipe is verbatim from plain chicken…

          • Jill

            Many of us have never heard of Plain Chicken newsletter so it’s new to me. I’d much rather check Hip2Save daily than read a newsletter anyway!! Collin and Lina, thank you for providing such interesting and fun ideas….I appreciate it and think that it’s a great addition to an already fabulous website!

            • meg

              Couldn’t agree more! Who cares if its not an “original” recipe. Most recipes aren’t! I love all these recipes that lina is posting. Thanks for all the hard work and keep them coming please. 🙂

              There are copyright laws?

    • Betsy

      She says it’s from Plain Chicken.

  2. Queenmum

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re welcome! I thought it did to.

  3. Krissy

    This sound great! Can’t wait to give it a try!

  4. brandice

    Looks gross

    • meg

      Really…you have to be rude and ignorant? Why don’t you grow up and act like an adult?

    • An

      Why sugar coat it, huh? Maybe some comments are better left unsaid.

    • marie

      Why would you even leave such a rude comment! Just pass up the post and move on.

    • The Lady Prefers To Save

      Don’t be a hater, be an appreciator! In all fairness, my grandmother would have passed out to see someone put verde in her chicken and dumplings, but for me this looks awesome; fried green tomatoes are often used as a pairing with this dish and it looks wonderful! Also ladies, why converge on people? You do more good for the post so compliment the author, than post about the comments someone leaves, even if they are inappropriate. Thanks, Lina!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        You’re welcome and thanks for the nice comment!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re welcome! 🙂

  9. Mourrene

    I love chicken and dumplings! It looks good to me. Of course, I have to figure out what salsa verde but once I do that, I will be cooking with grease, so to speak! LOL

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ha it’s just green salsa, found with the other red varieties in the store 🙂

    For those who don’t want to buy a rotisserie chicken all the time, I like to cook chicken breasts in my crockpot and use it for different recipes. It shreds so easily and is awesome for many things–used it in the cabbage enchiladas this week, for chicken salad, chicken tacos, etc. very easy and versatile. Can’t wait to try out this recipe–love the twist with the salsa!

    • MommySpendsLess

      Have you tried freezing it once it’s cooked and cut up/shredded?

      • rob

        I do that all the time & it works well. I poach the chicken on stovetop instead of in crockpot but it does freeze well.

        • rob

          Also I find it shreds easier when it’s still warm.

      • Catie

        I haven’t tried freezing it, no. I try to make what I’ll need, usually for the week and then refrigerate what I’m not using right away. I would think it would freeze just fine though.

    • JulieA

      When I buy chicken in bulk I always toss it in the crock pot. I add a little black pepper and let it cook all day….I’ve tossed it in both thawed & frozen and it always comes out the same. After it’s done I drain the broth to use in recipes. I dice, shred, or keep some whole and freeze it for future use.

      • lorigibe

        Do you add any liquid to it?

  11. Jessica

    We made this yesterday and it was delicious! It was even better today as leftovers. Thank you for the recipe!!

  12. Jerri

    Just made this tonight and my husband had seconds. Spiciness of sauce dissipates during cooking. I added half an onion chopped fine to the base sauce. And I used skim milk to save on the calories. I also used salt and pepper to our taste and fresh parsley. I think a few added spices of your choice would be good too! or some cilantro!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s great!! Thanks for sharing Jerri!

  13. Missi McGahey

    Can I use regular red tomato salsa?

  14. TK


    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I’m so glad – thanks for reading and for coming back to share your success!
