Easy Chicken and Dumplings

I found this great new recipe for easy slow-cooker chicken and dumplings, it really is easy (unlike a lot of recipes that claim to be) and it tastes AH-mazing, seriously one of my new favorite meals!

Easy Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
INGREDIENTS

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup (I have used one can of chicken and can of celery or mushroom for variety)
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons, mix and match your choice of favorite seasoning – choices are: garlic powder, all purpose or poultry seasoning, paprika, cumin, dried parsley, rosemary, thyme.
  • 1 small onion, diced (optional, but we love it, finely diced)
  • 1 – bag of frozen or canned mixed veggies (optional)
  • 1 can of flaky refrigerator biscuits – you may desire two if your family wants lots of dumplings

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the chicken, butter, soup,seasonings, onion, (and optional veggies) in a slow cooker.
  2. Pour chicken stock to cover.
  3. Cover, and cook for about 4 hours on High or 7 hours on low. (All slow cookers vary)
  4. About one hour before serving, take lid off of crock pot and shred chicken with fork.
  5. Then take biscuits, flatten and tear into fourths. Place the torn biscuit dough in crockpot, making sure that you push pieces down into the liquid, so the tops are covered as well.
  6. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center. (If you’ve been cooking on low & need to hurry the process, turn up to high until dough has cooked.)
Just combine everything but the biscuit dough(you add in an hour before serving) in your crock pot. I added veggies (carrots, peas, corn) and used garlic powder and italian seasoning. I also cooked it on high for 4 hours, it would probably be better cooked on low so the flavors can mix but I still thought it was great.
And I cut up my dumplings and flattened them when I made everything else so they would be ready to just throw in. 
The dumplings cook for the last hour and should puff up like this by the end!

It makes A LOT which is good for leftovers or guests! I highly recommend this recipe it really was easy, tasted amazing and made the house smell awesome. And bonus, it supplied The Hubs with lunch for work and dinner since I work late!
