Hearty Chicken & Dumplings

I love using my crock pot, but I find that it is easy to dry out chicken dishes.  This one requires a couple steps throughout the process to ensure your chicken doesn’t get dry, so I like to do this one on a day that my husband or I will be home to tend to it.

Cooking time required: about 4 hours.


  • 2 (10.75 oz) cans cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans chicken broth
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 (16.3 oz) tube refrigerated biscuits, quartered
  • Chopped veggies: onion, carrots, peas, corn, etc.


  1. Combine everything except the biscuits in the crock pot.  Cover and cook on low for about 3 hours, until chicken is just cooked.
  2. Remove chicken and shred with 2 forks.  Return to crock pot.  Add biscuit pieces to the chicken mixture, spreading evenly and stirring slightly to coat the pieces of dough.
  3. Cover and cook on high for one hour, until biscuit pieces are cooked.
