Easiest Chicken & Dumplings

6 years ago

I love chilly days. They make me want to curl up on the sofa with a good movie and eat yummy comfort dishes, like chicken and dumplings. I was having one of those days on Friday. The weather was cool and I actually had to wear a sweater to work. It was then that I knew that it would be a chicken and dumpling day. Fortunately, I live close to work and was able to come home during my lunch break to quickly throw all the ingredients into the crockpot before I finished off the rest of my workday, but I'm sure you could do it before you ventured off to work as well.

I wanted to share the recipe I used because there is little prep time-all you have to do is dice a onion and cut a few celery sticks-and it is so delicious.

1 package of chicken breasts halved
2 cans of cream of chicken
2 cups of chicken stock
1 tablespoon of butter (melted)
1 small onion diced
3 celery sticks cut
1 can of refrigerated biscuit dough
Dash of salt, pepper and parsley

(Optional: I'm going to add frozen carrots and/or corn next time and I'm sure they would be a sweet addition)


In a crockpot, put it halved chicken breasts, soup, diced onion, melted butter and then the chicken stock until its covered.

Add a dash of salt, pepper and parsley before covering

Let cook on high for 4-5 hours (or on low for 6-8 hours)

90 minutes before serving, tear up the refrigerated biscuit dough into bite sized pieces and put in the crockpot.

After an hour and half, feel free to serve and slurp up!
