Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Total Time
8hrs 10mins
Prep 10 mins
Cook 8 hrs

This is a great comforting meal for when the weather starts getting colder. My family really enjoys this. Edited 10/16/2007 to add celery stalks.


  1. Place chicken in a slow cooker.
  2. Heat broth in microwave; dissolve bouillon in broth.
  3. Add next 4 ingredients to broth.
  4. Pour over chicken.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, until chicken falls apart when poked with a fork.
  6. Combine buttermilk biscuit mix and milk, then drop spoonfuls over chicken to form dumplings.
  7. Cover and cook on high for 35 minutes or until dumplings are done.

Call 'em dumplings or don't call 'em dumplings, this was still a very satisfying dish, & the only change I made to it was to use lemon pepper instead of the usual pepper! Very nice comfort food! Will be making this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
