Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

Slow Cooker Chicken And Dumplings

We have been making this recipe for years. We started out making it on the stove but, as many of you may know, the slow cooker is my absolute favorite small kitchen appliance to use. So, we changed the recipe a bit and moved it to the slow cooker. We think that it actually tastes better cooked slower – as many recipes do – and we have not cooked it on the stove since. This recipe is one of the easiest we made, is pretty inexpensive and a perfect comfort food.

You Will Need…
4 chicken breasts {fully cooked}
1 3/4 32 oz cartons of chicken broth {so 56 oz total}
3 cans cream of chicken soup
12 frozen biscuits
5 qt slow cooker

To Prepare…
1. Put the cooked chicken breasts, broth and soup in your slow cooker.
2. Add biscuits to the top. You do not need to cut them but if you want to, heat them for a few seconds in the microwave to make this easier.
3. Cook on low for 6 hours.
4. Enjoy.
