Easy Chicken & Dumplings Recipe

Months ago I tweeted that I was making Chicken & Dumplings in the Crockpot.
...or "Chicken n' Dumplins" as we call it in the south (they taste better if you say it like that, FYI).
Lots of recipe requests followed and have continued to this day. I figured I would put it on my blog so I could reference this post (and so obviously you guys could too) instead of me having to retype the recipe a million times through twitter or having to search back through MONTHS of tweets. No bueno.

So here it is! My super easy recipe for the ultimate comfort food, Chicken & Dumplings. I've made them the "southern" homemade way before (all southern grandmas know this skill and if you have the chance, get one to teach you sometime...haha), but I swear, this way is tastier. Sorry, grandmas.  And who can resist a good Crock Pot recipe?
You will DIE at how good this stuff is. It's one of my husband's all time fav dinners.

If you're a bit perplexed as to what the heck this stuff even is, it's super simple. Chicken and biscuits (cooked into a broth with the chicken to make yummy chewy dumplings). It's THE BEST.  Around our house, we eat it in a big bowl by itself. Sometimes, I'll make a veggie to go with it. It's delish with green beans or cooked carrots.  It can go with anything really.
But prepare for a dumplin'-induced food coma after this.  I warned you.
Ok enough gushing about how much I love this stuff... here's the goods.
Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings
(about 4 servings)
3-10.5 oz. cans cream of chicken soup (condensed, just the soup, don't add the water)
1-15 oz. can chicken broth
add about half a small can (about 5 oz.) of water
1 small onion, diced
3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
sprinkle of parsley
salt and pepper 
1 can refrigerator biscuits (not flaky layers), about 8 biscuits

Add all ingredients (except biscuits) to the Crock Pot. Cook on high for 5 hours. Chicken should fall apart by this point, but you can gently break it up with a spoon or fork. Cut up biscuits into pieces and throw them into the mix. Make sure to "reset" the Crock Pot (turn it back on) to high and cook biscuits for about 40 minutes. 

So eat up, buttercups! It's delish stuff.  Hope you love it!

    1. haha ;) Refrigerator biscuits are basically raw, canned biscuit dough. Very common here. So they're just raw biscuit dough. The homemade "southern grandma" way to make them, which I've made several times before involves boiling your chicken breasts on the stove (making your own chicken broth) and then dropping in the raw dough pieces, which in turn, thicken the broth and give it a good consistency. However, everyone that has had this version and the homemade version say the crock pot version is tastier :)

    1. Yep! Just drop the raw dough in (cut into pieces) and it will cook just like anything else in the crock pot.

  19. I just put everything in the crock pot to make this but Im wondering if diced potatoes would work in this as well. I want to put the potatoes in, but I have heard mixed reviews of them not cooking enough in the crock pot. Thoughts?

    1. I usually slice and dice my potatoes and cook them in the microwave for a few minutes first just to get them started and then put them in the crockpot. Unless you're cooking something for 8-10 hours they usually could use a little extra zap before they go in the pot!

  26. Made this tonight, except I added cubed white potatoes & baby carrots. Its cold & rainy here & it sounded like it would be more like a rainy night meal. Looks like it made a lot so since there are only 2 of us I will be freezing the leftovers.

  30. Great tasting recipe. I've made this a few times now and have since added carrots and celery to it just to have a way for my kids to eat their veggies. I'm making this now for a company party for my employees at www.modernfanoutlet.com because I know they'll all love it too. Heck, after they eat it they may start selling more modern ceiling fans for me because it'll make them love me... haha.

  31. I'm making this right now as we speak. I can't wait to try it. It sounds yummmmmmmy!(:

  32. I made this the other day and the only thing I didn't prefer is the biscuits. I recommend making your own dough and placing them in there instead of the canned ones. Other than that-the sauce was DELICIOUS!!

  33. Can I use a whole chicken instead? What difference will it make?
