Slow Cooker Chicken And Dumplings (Easy!)

Here is a recipe for the easiest chicken and dumplings you will ever make! And the best part is, you can make it in a slow cooker, so it basically cooks itself after minimal prep-work. Great for those with small kids, those who have crazy work schedules, or those who simply do not know how to cook. I recently gave this recipe to my Grandma, and she said it was great! You can actually play with the recipe quite easily, adding things to suit your own personal tastes. I will add some suggestions we like after the basic recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 onion, finely diced(I HATE onions, so I use onion powder for flavor but no icky texture)
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
  • frozen peas (as many or little as you like!)
  • baby carrots
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper, to taste. I prefer sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. White pepper works well in this recipe, too!
  • Directions

    1. Place the chicken, butter, soup,carrots,thyme, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
    2. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, add the frozen peas and stir. Then place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

    That’s it! Pretty simple, huh? I usually add more seasoning to taste. One I like is Emeril’s Original Essence. I use this in all kinds of dishes.  My hubby also likes me to “kick it up a notch” by adding just a small amount of red pepper flakes. White wine is also good in this recipe! You can also add any other veggies you may like. Please note that for canned or frozen veggies especially, you want to add them in the last hour of cooking.

    Enjoy!
