A true comfort food! Homemade taste without the hassle. As with any crock pot recipe, you'll need to adjust the timing depending on how quickly yours cooks.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 broiler-fryer chicken
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) soup can water
  • salt & pepper


  1. Place chicken in crock pot, season with salt, pepper, and other seasonings of your choice. Do not add water. Cook 4-6 hours on low.
  2. Remove chicken from crock pot. Strain the broth in the crock pot to remove fat and any small bones.
  3. Add broth back to crock pot along with the soup, margarine, and water. Increase heat to 'high' and add cut up biscuits. (I usually cut mine in half).
  4. While the dumplings are cooking, remove the chicken from the bone and add to crock pot.
  5. Cook for 45 minutes - 1 hour or until dumplings are done to your liking.
