The cool, cozy fall months call for warm, hearty comfort food. For the poultry lovers out there, here are some simple, filling, and delectable fall chicken recipes to keep you warm and toasty this season.
9 Hearty Fall Chicken Recipes Perfect for Cooler Days
1. Instant Pot Chicken and Dumpling Stew
We here at Homemade Recipes swear by the Instant Pot for a lot of reasons. This Instant Pot chicken and dumpling stew is not only hearty and full of flavor but also easy to whip up in less than an hour. If you want that extra thickness, add a little softened butter and flour along with some heavy cream.
2. Chicken Pot Pie

A traditional chicken pot pie may look like something that’s going to take a whole day to make, but with some adjustments, you can cut down the overall time to just a little under an hour. The key is to buy some of the components like the biscuits and roasted chicken pre-cooked, so you don’t have to start making everything from scratch (unless that’s what you want, then by all means!).
3. Tomato Baked Chicken

There’s nothing like this one-pan tomato baked chicken recipe for that sudden burst of tomato flavor and melty, cheesy goodness in one go. For best results, grate your own mozzarella cheese as the coating in pre-shredded mozzarella can affect the way the cheese melts.
4. Chicken and Rice Casserole
