Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

This recipe is ridiculously easy and pretty tasty :) I love crockpot recipes, especially on Bible study and choir nights. C (my husband!) gets home between 5-5:30 and I have to bounce at 6pm; doesn’t leave a whole lot of catch-up time, so I certainly don’t want to spend those precious moments slaving over dinner! This is a pretty fool-proof (tried and tested by yours truly, #1 cooking fool. at times.) recipe with only a handful of ingredients. Recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup Note: I use one cream of chicken and one cream of mushroom.
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces Note: I buy the frozen bags and use about 4 frozen biscuits.
  • Optional: One lg can of peas and carrots.
  • Optional: One can of water.
  • Optional: Salt, pepper, garlic powder.

I’m not even sure what the recipe says anymore I’ve made this on my own so many different ways now. I put frozen chicken breasts rubbed with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, 2 cans of soup, 1 can of water, chopped onion and peas & carrots into the crockpot on high around 9am. Around 1pm, I turn it down to low, and about 2 hours before serving, I put the frozen biscuits into the pot. I’ve been making this for about a year now and just recently (like yesterday) noticed that the recipe called for refrigerated biscuits, but no matter :) Once the biscuits get soft enough to tear apart (30ish minutes), tear them apart. They will absorb a lot of water, drying out the meal, so that’s why I added the can of water to my recipe with FROZEN biscuits. Just make sure to break them up into bite sizes because even though I’m a dumpling girl, those puppies get huge. Once the biscuits are cooked through and the chicken shred-able, you’re all set! :) A little cheese sprinkled on top is also a nice edition.

Seems like I put cheese on everything. Perhaps that has something to do with the toddler in my midst?

Would I make this for someone else? Yes! I absolutely would make this for someone else, especially to take to a brand new-home-from-the-hospital momma :) It’s easy and cheap and perfect for something like that!
