YUMMMMO to the Chicken and Dumplings...

I have always slaved over chicken and dumplings in the kitchen. They have always turned out oh so yummy, but the long cooking hours swayed me away from making these a lot. But when I was looking for new recipes to make, my sweet old time friend, Stephanie Graham Warren sent me a recipe for Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings. I was very nervous, but took the plunge. GLAD I DID! Oh so yummy and EASY! Easy, there isn't anything more I could ask for with two young kids and not having the time to cook them homemade, but heck homemade, I could say they were. They were THAT GOOD!! I got to share with my neighbor and my mother in law who is an excellent cook. Both ladies gave them a A PLUS!!! So now friends I am going to pay forward and share with you. ENJOY, you too will be glad you did.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings


4 – 6 chicken breast
2 Tbsp butter
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 packages refrigerated biscuits, torn into pieces

Place chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker. Add enough water to cover chicken. Cover, and cook for 4-5 hours on low. Add torn biscuit dough to the slow cooker. Cook until dough is no longer raw about another hour. Total cook time is about 5-6 hours on low.

You sold me on the dumplings recipe! I love chicken and dumplings- enough to still ask for it for my birthday! Yes, nothing else...just my moms homemade dumplings. I am trying this tomorrow. It's the perfect weather! You have some precious boys. Kindergarten's fun, huh??

I have never been a fan of chicken and dumplings, but my husband is and I have NEVER made it. I'll have to surprise him one night soon with this one. Thanks!
