Man Pleasing Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

This is a man pleasing, woman loving, four ingredient, couldn’t get any easier crock pot chicken and dumpling recipe.I use this recipe to make Chicken and Dumplings at least once a month and nobody complains. The kids love it and my husband even suggests I make it when I ask him for dinner ideas. I made this when we had my parents over for dinner one night and now my mom makes it at her house quite often too. One time when my husband had a group of friends over I had a batch of this in the crock pot and they inhaled it – now when they come over they ask when I am making it again. This is a woman loving recipe because it seriously takes fives minutes to put this stuff together and then you let your crock pot do the rest! It sticks to your sides and is great for a cold fall or winter night (although I make it all year round because it is just THAT good (and EASY!))Man Pleasing Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings - only four ingredients!Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless/skinless Chicken Breasts (frozen is fine)
  • 2 cans of condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • Can of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup of water (okay 5 ingredients if you count water)

Directions:In a crock pot – place chicken breasts in the bottom and then pour cream of chicken soup over the top. Cut butter into slices and scatter over the top. Add 1/2  a cup of water and cook on high 4-5 hours or low 5-6. You may need to adjust the timing depending on your crock pot. Mine seems to cook on the hot side. 30 minutes before you are ready to eat shred the chicken and then open the biscuits and tear them into pieces and put into the mixture. Give it a stir and let it cook for 30-35 minutes on high. Done!  Man Pleasing Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings - only four ingredients!

This recipe I have made so many times and everyone loves it. For those of tou who had trouble with the canned biscuits that tou add at the end after your chicken is cooked and shredded, I always turn my slow cooker to high to cook the dumplings/torn canned biscits. Also sometimes it takes 35 to 40 minutes for them to cook. I always taste a dumpling to make sure it it’s done.

Also, another tip, preheat your slow cooker for 15 minutes fot all slow cooker recipes.

I’ve made this twice and I can’t get the biscuits to cook. They just stay doughy and lumpy. Do you have any advice?

What about salt and pepper?

I personally don't feel like it needs any salt because of the cream of chicken soup but pepper would be a good addition. I usually set salt and pepper on the table when I serve it if anyone wants :)

No just put it in frozen! It cooks perfect! I add to my recipe fresh butter on the chicken, a can of chicken broth, spoonful minced garlic, handful shredded carrots, and a cup chopped onion. Sometimes I add a stick or two of celery for flavor but I take it out when it's done because I don't like it. Also don't put in frozen biscuits and don't cook them, they do great just from can to crock pot and put some big uncooked biscuits on top the last hour they cook nicely! Add salt and pepper to taste last!

Should I thaw out the chicken first/should it be boiled before you put the cream of chicken and everything gin there?
