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!
- 2 chicken breasts - I generally use bone out, but you can use whatever you have or prefer.
- 1 box of chicken broth (approx. 32 ounces) - you can also use boullion cubes and water.
- 2 cans of cream of chicken soup
- one thing of Pillsbury biscuits
- add different seasonings, veggies, etc., etc. that you like.
- Place thawed chicken breasts in crock pot
- Pour box of broth over the chicken
- Spoon cream of chicken soup over chicken
- ***add seasonings, or veggies like potatoes, celery, carrots, etc. that need to cook awhile here***
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Put biscuits in crock pot
- Spoon broth over biscuits to keep the tops from burning and them from sticking to the sides
- ***add canned veggies that just need to heat up here***
- 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.
