You could also use biscuits instead of the corn bread.

Thanks, party! I hope my grocery store carries them. Last time we were in there they didn't have a lot of the Pillsbury products.

Girls, I did some research. Apparently Pillsbury makes cornbread twists. Hope that helps!

Yuuuum! I know what's for dinner tonight! I wonder if those croissant-style dinner rolls would work? I always like that kind of buttery pastry with a chicken gravy sort of thing.

I've never heard of them either. I'll have to look. Otherwise I'll just use breadsticks or something.

Looks good! Much easier than traditional chicken and dumplings or chicken pot pie.
