One of my favorite meals that my husband makes me is Chicken and Dumplings. However, there are days when he just doesn’t have time to be in the kitchen cooking. I wanted to take his recipe and find a way to bring it to the crock pot so that we could fix it and forget it. This has been great for sick days or days when we just need a comfort food. I have to tell you, I am now in love with this crock pot chicken and dumplings recipe!
Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings
(Disclaimer- I make a very large pot of this and we will eat at least two meals off of this.)
8 cups Chicken broth – You can use store bought of your own.
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
2 cups boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
2 cups celery sliced
1 tablespoon onion powder – You can use onion. I just don’t like the texture of onion.
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon crushed garlic
1 package buttermilk biscuits
Start by layering chicken and celery on the bottom of your crock pot.
Top with all of your seasonings. – This is where you would put in your chopped onions if you use them instead of onion powder.
Add cream of chicken soup and chicken broth.
After it has cooked cut your biscuit dough into small pieces and add to the crock pot. – I generally cut each biscuit into 1/4 of the biscuit. The picture above was them a bit small because I cut them wrong. Let them cook for about 30 minutes to get cooked all the way through.
Serve and enjoy. – Leftovers can be saved for lunch the next day and we always enjoy it more the second day then we did on the first.
