Crockpot Chicken & Dumplings

Ingredients
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I doubled the recipe since we were cooking for extras and I only had three chicken breasts.  It worked out great though.)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
  • 1/2 onion, diced OR you can use 2 Tbsp. dried, diced onion
  • 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 4 Grands flaky refrigerator biscuits
Instruction
  1. Place chicken in crockpot.  Plop the butter on the chicken.
  2. Then scoop the cream of chicken soup on that (since I doubled this recipe, I only had 3 cans of cream of chicken soup, so I added a can of cream of mushroom soup).
  3. Pour the chicken broth over all.
  4. Add the diced onion and dried parsley.
  5. Cover and cook on High for 4-5 hours or Low for 8-9 hours.
  6. After the chicken is cooked, shred it and put it back into the soup.
  7. Cut each biscuit into 9 pieces.
  8. Stir gently into the soup.  Cover and turn the crockpot to High and cook for another hour.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!

  1. Making this now. Recipe was very easy to follow and looks and smells awesome. I used 2 large chicken breasts which I seared on both sides before placing in crock pot. Cooked for 4.5 hours on high, turned to low for 1 hour. then turned back on high adding 4 cut up flake biscuits. Should be ready in 1/2 hour. Serving with mixed vegetables.

  2. We made this yesterday. It was amazing. I used 4 breasts, and cooked on low for 5 hours and high for 3. I did not add the veggies, as the comment mentioned. One hint, don't stir the biscuits after you initially stir them in. They'll rise to the top and kind of steam/bake. Super yummy. We'll be making this again Fo Shizzle. :)

  3. If I want to double this recipe like you did to feed my 3 bottomless pit boys, do I double the amounts listed or did you already do that when you posted the recipe?

    1. I make this on the stove top all the time. Boil your chicken until cooked thoroughly.. I usually use 3 - quantity is usually just depending on preference. Take the chicken out of broth to cool.. add 1 lrg can of cream of chicken soup to broth water and I usually add 1 more small can of broth to richen it up. Shred your chicken up and add back to the broth - stir all together. Pepper to taste. I always use Butter Grands because it makes it rich, but again it's a preference thing. Bring broth mix to a simmer/ boil and I just tear off small pieces of biscuits, dropping them in about a can at a time. Stir frequently so your bottom doesn't scorch and cook for about 20 min or until you notice the biscuits are not all still floating on the top. The liquid ratio is also a preference - you can make it as soupy or thick as your family likes it and both are just as tasty.

  13. Hi. I made this a week ago. It was on my Facebook feed! It turned out great. I didn't use a crock pot thought because i can never remember to set it up in time. 6 kid household has me going everywhere. I really need to get on the crock pot train though! Anywho... It was awesome in the stove. It was my 1st time ever making or having chicken and dumplings. My husband said his grandma used to make this dish. He loved it. He ate 2 giant bowls! Thanks for sharing.

  15. Can I add veggies and potatoes if I wanted to make a steel and if so at what point would. Thinking of carrots, celery and possibly onions.

    1. No reason not to add those veggies and have a one pot meal. Add them with the chicken to make sure they get soft. And for sure before the biscuits

  16. I'm making this meal for the 2nd time in a month! I TRIPLED the recipe and plan to freeze 2/3 of it(minus the biscuits of course) in separate Ziploc gallon bags once it fully cools. My kids and husband (VERY picky eaters) absolutely love this!! Thanks so much for this awesome and super easy recipe!

  17. I made this recipe once and it was great. This time the biscuits didn't cook and I don't know what to do.

  18. Great Recipe! This will definitely be added to my favorites. I doubled the recipe to have left overs. Instead of cooking it all in the crockpot, I cooked the dish in my pressure cooker/slow cooker. I put the chicken, 1 diced onion and 2 cans of chicken broth in my pressure cooker on high at 15psi for 15 minutes. Took the chicken out, shredded it, put chicken back in the pot and added 3 cans of cream of chicken soup, one can of cream of chicken and mushroom soup, parsley and added some rosemary. I added the cut up biscuits and stirred it all together a little. Put my lid on steam and then put it on slow cook for 1 hr. 50 minutes. It taste delicious! This dish may not last long. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
