Easiest Chicken and Dumplings EVER!!!!

I know that winter is coming to an end (Thank Goodness!) and that means menu planning will begin to incorporate more burgers, pasta salads, and other lighter fare.  However, I believe there is always room for good comfort food and since Spring is only almost here, you should definitely try this recipe in these last few weeks of  winter.

This is so easy and so yummy!!!

Easiest Chicken and Dumplings EVER

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts; cut into pieces
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cans (or about 2 1/2 cups) chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits (I use Pillsbury Grands homestyle buttermilk 8 count - DO NOT use the layered biscuits) 

Place chicken pieces in crock pot.  Top with soup, broth, salt & pepper, and stir.  Cook on low 6 hours or on high 4 hours.  About 30 minutes before serving, cut biscuits into 4-6 pieces each.  (Turn crock pot up to high, if necessary.)  Drop dough pieces into crock pot; replace lid.  Let dough cook for about 30 minutes - stir occasionally, pushing dough pieces down into liquid.  **The liquid will seem rather runny at first, but the starch from the dough will thicken it as the dough pieces cook.  Voila!!

THANK YOU for this recipe! I made it tonight, and as promised, it was easy AND yummy. The whole family loved it, including my picky boys. Another great thing: there was a lot leftover, which means less cooking for me! :) I'm looking forward to making your Cheesy Chicken recipe next.
