Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Hello World!  Hope all are well and happy this fine Wednesday!  Today I want to share with you a recipe I tried from Lady with the Red Rocker.  



Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

1 ½lb of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 4 large or 6 small)
4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
3 cans (10.5oz) Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1 box (32oz) Chicken Broth
1 medium White Onion, diced
2 dashes of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
10 Large Flaky Refrigerator Biscuits

Place chicken in crock pot and top with butter.  Add cream of chicken soup, chicken broth and diced onions.  Cook on High for 4-6 hours or Low for 6-8 hours.

Cut each uncooked biscuit into 8 small pieces and stir into the chicken mixture.  Continue to cook on High for 30 minutes. Remove chicken from slow-cooker and shred with a fork.  Return to slow-cooker and stir everything together.  Serve hot.

Makes about 6-8 servings.

Super delicious and really easy to make.  The entire family loved it.  Give this one a whirl when you don't want to turn the oven on or stand over the stove.  Who wants to do that on a hot summer afternoon?  

Make it Pretty Monday is still live if you want to come join in the fun.  Click here to go straight to the party.  Wishing all a grand evening.  Remember to be kind to one another!  

Toodles,
Kathryn

  6. I love chicken and dumplings! My grandmother was the only person I knew who made the best dumplings. She rolled her own with a mix of flour, salt and water. I tried making them once and while they were good, they were no comparison to hers! I'm always looking for crockpot recipes.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  10. Oh yes- we have been making this for a few months now. It's so good. So good in fact that we were making it about every week- then there is the left overs. So twice a week- yeah, I'm 10 lbs heavier now & have had to cut this yumminess back to about once a month instead.

  25. How can I cut this down for just the two of us? It seems like you are really using a lot of soup. Can I use Grands biscuits?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, you can use the Grands biscuits. The above recipe serves between 6 - 8. I would adjust my measurements by half. Anyway, you will want some leftover as well. Toodles, Kathryn
