Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings created by Anonymous

I received this from a daily e-column (Everyday Cheapskate) I subscribe to. She'd never given me a bum steer before, so when I tried this I wasn't surprised that we liked it; the truth is we LOVED it! Having made this recipe once, next time I think I will try adding frozen mixed vegetables before adding the soup mix. I used 94% fat-free cream of chicken soup and due to time constraints made pasta to ladle the soup over when I served this. I'll try wild or long-grain rice next time. This is a real keeper and truly delicious!

ingredients

directions

  • Place the chicken, butter, soup, broth and onion in slow cooker. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on high.
  • . One hour before serving, open biscuits. Roll each one to be about 1/4-inch thick and cut into 1/2-inch strips.
  • Add to the slow cooker, laying on top of chicken and liquid. Overlapping strips of dough will occur.
  • Continue cooking until the dough is no longer raw in the center, about 1 hour.
  • Note: Dough will not cook into biscuits as you might think. It will become like traditional dumplings.

    Awesome recipe!!! It is so easy and my family loves it. I use whatever cream of ... soups that I have; one is usually some type of cream of chicken. I add two 12-ounce bags of mixed frozen vegetables as well as the onion. I use canned chicken and put it in just before I put the biscuits in. Using canned chicken, I only cook it 3 1/2 to 4 hours total on high. Easy comfort food.

    This was a great recipe, however my hubby put my bone in skinless chicken breast in a brine for about 5 hours, and dummy me didn't rinse them I just patted them dry. So needless to say the diish was VERY salty, even for me cuz I love salt ,I turned it into " Chicken and Dumpling Soup" so it wasn't a total loss. I will make it again, but without the screw up, I was really impressed the way the dumplings turned out, I flatten them and tore them in small pieces, and also added celery , onions, carrots and peas. I think I will make then again after Thanksgiving , using turkey. Everyone ha a GREAT Thanksgiving!
