Crock pot Chicken and Dumplings

I really love  this recipe, especially on rainy days or when it’s cold. I can throw just about everything in the crock pot in the morning and then when I get home all I have to do is pull apart the biscuits and drop them in the crock pot too so that they cook while I take a shower. This recipe is low energy, yummy, and easy to make your own. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  1. 2 chicken breasts - I generally use bone out, but you can use whatever you have or prefer.
  2. 1 box of chicken broth (approx. 32 ounces) - you can also use boullion cubes and water.
  3. 2 cans of cream of chicken soup
  4. one thing of Pillsbury biscuits
  5.  add different seasonings, veggies, etc., etc. that you like.

 Directions:

  1. Place thawed chicken breasts in crock pot
  2. Pour box of broth over the chicken
  3. Spoon cream of chicken soup over chicken 
  4. ***add seasonings, or veggies like potatoes, celery, carrots, etc. that need to cook awhile here***
  5. Turn crock pot on low for about 8 hours - I let it go during the day while I’m working, but for weekends I turn it on high and let it cook for about 4 to 5 hours.
  6. Take two forks and shred the chicken - you could cut the chicken into chunks before you even put it into the crock pot, but I like doing it this way because its quicker and easier for me.
  7. Pull each of the biscuits apart into 4 or 5 bite size pieces - they come in a container of 8ish so you’ll have a bunch of little pieces.
  8. Put biscuits in crock pot
  9. Spoon broth over biscuits to keep the tops from burning and them from sticking to the sides
  10. ***add canned veggies that just need to heat up here***
  11. Cook on low for about 45 minutes.

This makes a lot of food, enough for 4 people and then there are still leftovers. If you have a smaller crock pot or are not cooking for that many people, just cut the recipe in half. If you’re cooking for more people, add more chicken or some veggies! Also, I always check the labels of the cream of chicken soup and broth to make sure they are low sodium- the ones marked “low sodium” tend to have more sodium then the regular ones, so check the percentages if that is a concern for you. 

Back to School Crock Pot Recipes- This makes me feel both hungry and inspired to organize meal plans! Slow cookers are a very smart way to plan your dinners

Today we wanted to share some meal-planning and money-saving links, tips, tricks, and apps. Here’s a nifty website that I found via Quirky Momma that shares various crock-pot meal plans that are PERFECT for busy families once the school year kicks back into high gear. I don’t know about you but I sort of love it when someone does all the research and puts it in one easy to find place for me….hey…we just might be on to something!

u kno those AUs you’re never planning on doing anything with but pictures for them just pop into your head.

yeah I do too.

Uhhhh facts Crockercorp owns the world and most people in it.  Aranea runs a ‘bodyguard’ breeding/training service, that’s her horn-tag.  Gamzee’s prime directives are ‘Eliminate Threats’ and ‘Smile’.  Jane still has healing powers she didn’t know she had b/c she’s never been not-mind-controlled long enough to find out.  Jake will get out of this and be just fine *pets hair*.  I’m never going to write this. b(=u=)d
