Chicken & Dumplings

One of my most requested family recipes!!
This dish is an easy go-to meal that you will enjoy.
It simmers in the slow-cooker and uses ready-made
biscuits for a fast version of an old fashioned delight.
Slow-Cooker Chicken & Dumplings
6 boneless chicken breasts or thighs
(cut in large chunks)
1 onion, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
3 carrots, peeled & diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large cream of chicken soup
2 chicken bouillon cubes
3 c chicken broth
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder
2 t basil
2 t parsley
kosher salt
cracked black pepper
1/2 c milk
2 pkg. refrigerated biscuits
(cut each piece in half - then each half is 4)
Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper
and place in the bottom of a slow-cooker.
Saute the onion, celery and carrots in
2-3 T olive oil and 1 T butter ~ season with
salt and pepper and cook until soft ~ then
add garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
Place on top of chicken pieces.
Layer cream of chicken soup on the top.
Add chicken broth, bouillon cubes and
remaining spices to the slow-cooker.
Set temperature on high until the broth
begins to bubble - then set at low and
continue simmering for 3-4 hours.
Add biscuits pieces and allow to cook an additional hour.
Stir in milk and blend before serving.

  1. Your recipe sounds lovely - delicious comfort food at its best! And I love that you use refrigerator biscuits for the dumplings. I struggle to make nice dumplings and I'm not really that fond of them - but I love refrigerator biscuits!!

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
