Chicken and Dumplings are probably the ultimate comfort food. Tender juicy shredded chicken and soft dumplings in a rich creamy brothy gravy.

This recipe uses a few little short cuts to make it really quick and easy to put together.  I love the addition of frozen veggies for color, flavor and some extra nutrients.

This is one family recipe everyone will agree on.The best part about this recipe is that it cooks up in the slow cooker all day long.  That means you can spend about 5 minutes prepping and head on out and run your errands (or go for lunch with your friends which sounds much more fun).  The slow cooker does all of the work but the results are just as amazing as a from scratch recipe!

When cooking dairy in the slow cooker (such as cream) it can often separate or curdle so I’ve subbed in condensed soup in this recipe.  Condensed soup holds up very well in the slow cooker making it the perfect swap in this recipe!

I use a can of premade biscuits to make the dumplings.  You’re going to want to roll them extra thin as they do puff up a little while they cook.  If you don’t want to use (or don’t have) canned biscuits, feel free to mix up a batch of your favorite homemade biscuits to create your own dumplings.  Once you shred the chicken and stir it back in, your dumplings will break up a little bit but don’t worry.  The edges soak up a bit of the sauce making for a perfect bowl of comfort.

Once you try this easy recipe, it’ll quickly become your favorite go to for slow cooker chicken and dumplings.

RECPE NOTES:

I used a 6QT crock pot for this recipe.  My biscuits are always perfectly cooked after 60 minutes however some slow cookers have required a little bit of extra time to cook the biscuits. Once the biscuits are cooked through they will still have a soft dumpling-like texture.

Ensure your slow cooker is on high and the liquid should be bubbling along the edges when you open the lid to add your vegetables and biscuits. You’ll want to ensure you open the lid for as little time as possible and that your vegetables are completely defrosted.

Note: Buttermilk, Country or Homestyle Biscuits work best in this recipe.  When adding the vegetables/biscuits ensure the lid is left off as little as possible.  Leaving the lid off for long periods of time will drastically increase cooking time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion , diced
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of celery soup
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • black pepper to taste
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups frozen vegetables or peas and carrots , defrosted
  • 1 can (8 pieces) refrigerated biscuits (Buttermilk, Country or Homestyle)

Directions:

  1. Add onion to 6 qt crock pot and top with chicken breasts.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cream of celery soup, cream of chicken soup, parsley, poultry seasoning and pepper. Spread over chicken breasts. Top with chicken broth and cook on high 5 hours.
  3. Approximately 1 hour (I allow 60 – 90 minutes) before serving (after 4 hours of cooking time), roll each biscuit thin and flat. Cut into 4 strips. Add vegetables to the slow cooker and stir. Add biscuit strips on top. Replace lid as quickly as possible.

To Serve

  1. Remove chicken breasts and slightly shred. Add back into slow cooker and stir (this will break up the dumplings somewhat which is ok). Let cook an additional 10 minutes and serve.

Notes:

My biscuits were perfectly cooked after 60 minutes however some slow cookers have required extra time to cook the biscuits.

  1. I will be trying these recipes. The chicken and dumplings look yummy.

  2. Would love 2 make this ..need what kind of seasonings now much broth what brand of bisque. COULD pleas send me the recipes 4 this 1?thank u so much.

  3. Wonderful recipes inexpensive and heakthy

  4. Just printed recipe. Gonna definitely make this one. We are casserole, slow cooker meal lovers and I love a crock pot meal. Looks simple and delicious.

  5. For clarification, is the total cooking time 5 or 6 hours? (So step 3 is at hour 4 or 5?)

    • The total cooking time for this recipe is 5 hours. After 3.5-4 hours cooking time you will add the vegetables and biscuits.

      • I am cooking this now (smells delicious!), but I see a discrepancy in the time. On the video I watched, it said cook for 4 hours, then add biscuits and cook and additional hour. This instructions say cook for 5 hours, then add the busciuts and cook another hour. ??? Help!

        • They are the same. In the video it says to cook for 4 hours, add biscuits and cook for 1 hour more (total 5 hours).

          In the recipe in step 2 it says cook for 5 hours. In step 3, one hour before serving (which would be at the 4 hour mark) add the biscuits and continue cooking for the final hour. (Total 5 hours)

  6. I tried to make it but the biscits stayed doughie im gonna try to leave the biscits out for an hour so they dry out then try to cook them again if you cook the checken for six hours it will fall apart its self

  7. How big of cans are the cream of chicken and celery?

  8. This will be in my crockpot tomorrow morning!

  9. Looks like something I could fix, as the daughter and son in law want let me cook. Look good.

    • I’m glad you think so! Let me know when you give the recipe a try. I guarantee your family will love it! :)

  10. This looks yummy! What are canned biscuits? I’m in the UK and we don’t have these.

  11. What is “poultry seasoning”?

  12. Does the recipe call for four chicken breast “halves” or four entire breasts? Four entire breasts seems like a lot to me but I haven’t made the dish yet so I just want to make sure. The total weight of the breasts is 3.5 lbs.

  13. I could have missed it some how but as I am making this is it on high or low? Can’t wait to taste it!

  14. Looks yummy

  15. Love this recipe, how many,calories dose this,have. I am a diabetic thats,why I ask. But it looks,dang good

  16. That chicken and dumplings is great!!

  17. They all look so good.

  18. Is it possible to cook on low for 8 hours then drop the biscuits in turn to high for an hour?

    I want to try and find things i can leave to cook while i am gone at work.

    • I have only made this recipe as written. I do think the chicken would be fine on low however the temperature of the liquid will not be high when you initially add the biscuits in so they may take longer to cook.

    • I use frozen to semi-frozen meat and set a timer to plug the crockpot into to kick on and start cooking later. Works great…. meat starts to thaw while sealed inside crockpot and then cooks in time to enjoy when I get home from work.

  19. I’m at the 5 hour mark and my biscuits are still not done

  20. Will try soon

  21. Can I cook this on low for 10 hours while at work, instead of on high for 5 hours?

    • I would suggest low for about 6-7 hours. When you add the biscuits, you will want to turn it onto high. The dumplings may take a little bit longer to cook than stated in the recipe doing it this way as the slow cooker isn’t as hot.

    • I just made this recipe last night. Fantastic as written, wouldn’t change a thing except maybe doubling it next time so there are more leftovers! I cooked on low for about 6 hours then switched to high for an additional two hours to make sure the biscuits were cooked thoroughly. Divine.

  22. What size cans of both the soups, you didn’t list that. Thanks!

  23. Can you cook on the low setting? If so, do you know how long?

    • I would suggest low for about 6-7 hours. When you add the biscuits, you will want to turn it onto high. The dumplings may take a little bit longer to cook than stated in the recipe doing it this way as the slow cooker isn’t as hot.

  24. All these look and sound great, can’t wait to try.

  25. Hi, are these thawed or frozen chicken breasts that are used? Thanks. Looks delicious and am making this today!

  26. I like cooking

  27. Can;t wait to try crock pot chicken and vegs not into dumplings
    .

  28. Please put the calories, sat fat, sugar, protein. Info on your respites
    Per serving. ON WEIGHT WATCHERS. But some of these look really good
    Thanks I. Advance

  29. Do you think it would work to double this in an 8 quart crock pot? Would the biscuits have enough room to fully cook? Thank you for this recipe!

    • You could certainly increase the chicken part but I would be concerned about the biscuits cooking through. If you do try it, I would suggest that you allow longer for the biscuits to cook.

  30. This is in my crock pot right now! Smells so good and is sooo easy! Can’t wait to taste it!

  31. I saw this recipe yesterday and it’s in the Crock-Pot as we speak. Chicken and dumplings are my favorite

  32. Hi! I made this in the crockpot last night, then put into casserole dishes for a big dinner TONIGHT. The biscuits were only in pot about 20 minutes. I’m thinking, 350F for 25-30 minutes?

  33. Looks delicious. I’m going to wait til the weather get cooler to make this. I live in Ca. And it really hasn’t cooled down enough just yet. ( it’s going to be 90° tomorrow )I’ll let you know how it turns out

  34. Recipe

  35. I can’t wait to try this, it looks so good! Chicken & dumpings has always been a favorite of mine and to cook it the Crock-Pot, well that’s a win win! Tami

  36. Is it possible to use a 5 quart manual crockpot?
    Thnaks

  37. would this recipe work using skinless thighs instead of breasts???

  38. These recipes look so good, I would love to get them

  39. Good food

  40. Can this be done using a pressure cooker to speed it up?

  41. I need to cook this for a total of 80 people. Do you think it can be cooked in a roaster too? I have three roasters that are bigger than my slow cookers. Please advise. The servings say 4 but I am going to serve over potatoes. I am assuming I can get 6-8 servings. Thoughts?

    • I’m sorry, I have only tried this recipe as written so I can’t say for sure. You may like to try a smaller portion in a roaster to see how it works out for you.

  42. I only have a 4 quart crock pot. It looks like I have room for the dumplings but don’t know if they will cook properly. Should I cook half of them separately in some boiling chicken stock?

    • I have only tried this as written so I can’t say for sure. They definitely do puff up in the crock pot. If you cook them completely in the 4 qt slow cooker, you may need to stir part way and/or add a little bit of additional cooking time.

    • How did it go with the 4 quart crock pot?? Deciding whether to cut the recipe in half or not.

  43. For the biscuits, do you cut each of the 8 biscuits into 4 strips? Do you lay them on top of chicken mixture or stir in? Thanks!!

  44. The recipe is in the crockpot cooking . I will give feedback after we eat tonight ! Looks yummy already

  45. Great recipe. A few changes I made to make it easier – I use frozen chicken tenderloins and cream of mushroom soup (instead of cream of celery). I also used a frozen bag of carrots, celery and onion mixture instead of mixed vegetables. I don’t have time to chop an onion. LOL! I also shredded the chicken in the crock pot before I added the biscuits and veggies for that final hour of cooking. Yummy, yummy! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

  46. Hi Holly!

    This looks AMAZING! 1 question – can I replace the cream of celery soup with another cream of chicken or cream of mushroom? We are strictly organic and having a tough time finding an organic cream of celery version.

    Thanks so much!!

    • I think two cream of chicken would work great in this recipe. (You may like to add a little bit of chopped celery in with the onion to add the celery flavor). Enjoy!

  47. I made this last night! Only, I did it a quick way. (Since I didn’t have time to do the slow cooker method). I used all the recommended ingredients, but I substituted a COOKED rotisserie chicken that I bought from the store. I shredded the chicken…sautéed the onion. Then I put everything in a large pot, except the biscuits. I simmered it for 25 minutes and added the biscuits…cooked it another hour…and bam! Delicious!

    Leftovers tonight! (I am definitely going to make some of your other recipes!)

    Keep them coming! Sabrina

  48. In the crockpot only another hour to go, smells yummy. Thanks for the great recipe.

  49. looked for recipe on the web site but wasn’t there? and don’t have a printer to print it out. Is this the only way to get these recipes??

  50. BTW type recipes are super easy and tasty!!qquestion regarding chicken and dumplings
    How long to cook if I used left over already cooked chicken

  51. I made the Crock pot Chicken and Dumplings and it was a hit! Very tasty!

  52. What I feel you shred the chicken and add back BEFORE adding dumplings to avoid breaking them up?

  53. Made it last night. It was amazing! Definitely going to add into the crockpot rotation this winter.

  54. My husband made this for dinner the other night and it is so yummy! Perfect meal for chilly days! It also heats up really well for lunches.

  55. This was a hit with my family. Great recipe.

  56. Not sure what poultry seasoning is. Is there a substitute? Thanks. Gonna make this tomorrow.

    • Poultry seasoning is a spice blend which should be readily available in the spice aisle (or bulk area if you would just like to purchase a little bit). I do make it at home combining the following:

      4 teaspoons ground sage, 3 teaspoons ground thyme, 1 teaspoon ground marjoram, 2 teaspoon ground rosemary, 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon white pepper

  57. Is it a totally bad thing if I already threw my peas and carrots and biscuit in already?

  58. Instead of having to prepare biscuits you can use dumpling strips which are found in the freezer section in most supermarkets. All you do with these is just drop them in and they come out great. They taste great too. I like using these because they are flat and thin (I hate fat globs of dumplings)! They would probably require a little less cooking time too.

  59. Love your recipes

  60. Any adjust to 7qt Crocker pot ? Same recipe or use double recipe ? Please let me know. Thank you cheerio from Canada.

  61. Thank you I’ve made mine different. So I will try this looks good.

  62. I am in the process of making this right now. The house is smelling very good. I can barely wait. I tasted the cream of soup mixture before I added it. I have never tried cream of celery soup until today; wow, it will make this dish. I will be using it from now on. Thank you! ☺️

  63. This looks so good and easy I’m going to try this today.

  64. Ok I’m making this as we speak lol
    I have another question for you. So can I cut the biscuits ahead of time?? I’m also using a fresh carrot cam I still put that in am hour before or should I put them in a little earlier cause its fresh and not frozen.l

  65. Do you use the large Grand size biscuits or the smaller biscuits that come 10 to a can?

    • I can buy biscuits in cans of 4, 8 and 10. Are the biscuits large or small?

      • Since the biscuits are rolled thin and cut into strips the size of the individual biscuits can vary and still work in this recipe so maybe it’s best to go by weight. :)

        The size of the can I used is about 12oz/340g. I hope that helps.

    • Where I live canned biscuits come in 2 sizes. One is a large biscuit. To cook 8 of those you would need a cookie sheet. The other biscuit is small and you could bake 8-10 of them in a cake pan. Were your biscuits large or small?

  66. Dumb question, but are we cooking for 4 hrs then the last is the biscuit part, or the full 5, then the biscuits making it 6?

    Thank you!!

  67. This has just gone in the crock pot so ill let u know how it turned out

  68. Makin it now!! Smells yummy! I didnt add onions…and am using crescent rolls instead of regular biscuits

  69. What would go good with the chicken n dumplings dish? Mash potatoes did not compliment it at all. It was very good! What would u suggest as a side dish?

  70. My biscuits are gooey and kind of gross…I followed the recipe. ..what can I do to firm them up?

  71. How much chicken broth should I add? Also, is the chicken cooked for 4 hours and then add the biscuits & veggies for a total cook time of 5 hours? Or cook the chicken for 5 hours and then add the biscuits & veggies for another hour for a total of 6 hours cooking time?

  72. Is there a way to print recipe without the ads?? I want to print to stick onto my recipe binder and not waste paper and expensive ink.

  73. Edible, but I won’t make it again. It was running, not the right flavors and the biscuits were not good.

  74. I’m sorry this didn’t work out for you, it’s one of our favorites. When you opened the lid and to add the biscuits, was your crock pot on high and was the liquid bubbling along the edges? Were your vegetables fully defrosted?

  75. Making it now! Worried about the biscuits I shredded chicken out back in pot added veggies rolled and cut dough into strips so mixed it all up dough looks kinda stretched out!

  76. Went to Walmart and bought everything I need! I usually make Chicken and Dumplings by scratch so hopefully my family will love this way. My daughter and son in law and 6 year old granddaughter live with my husband, 10 year old adopted daughter and I. So anything to make my life easier at this point I’m taking full advantage of. I will stop back in tonight and let you know the reviews from them. I’m new to your site and now visit it daily!!!!

    • That’s great, Chrissy! I hope your entire family enjoys the Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings. Let me know if you try any other recipes here! :)

  77. Can you do the chicken and dumplings on low in the crock pot? I leave early in the AM and don’t get home in 5 hours. If you can do them on low how long would that be for?

    • I would suggest low for about 6-7 hours. When you add the biscuits, you will want to turn it onto high. The dumplings may take a little bit longer to cook than stated in the recipe doing it this way as the slow cooker isn’t as hot.

  78. Does chicken need to be thawed out? Please let me know. Thank you

  79. I got this in the crockpot now. Only 30 mins left to cook and it smells SO good in here! I didn’t read that the veggies should be thawed out but I’m sure it’ll be ok. I’m gonna make this a go to meal. Thanks for sharing!

  80. This recipe was so easy and tasted delicious! This has always been a favorite food for my husband and he was in love too. Thank you for sharing!

  81. Thank you for sharing!

  82. This was a big hit in my house. Everyone loved it. Thank you. I cooked it on low from 8-3pm then I turned it high and added biscuits and p&c about 105 mins before serving. So good!

    • Amy, that sounds yummy! Biscuits are a great addition to many dinners, right? I’m glad your family enjoyed it!

  83. I only use a 4 qt crockpot (I’m only feeding my husband and I). Would these ingredients overfill it? If so, what amounts should I use?

  84. Trying the chicken and dumplings for dinner but subbing out 2 cans of cream of chicken because I don’t have the cream of celery and a can of mixed veggies. Using what I have in the pantry! Thanks for the recipe!

  85. Can I substitute red potatoes instead of biscuits?

    • I’m sure that would be delicious. I would add the potatoes in right at the beginning. The cooking time may need to be adjusted slightly to ensure the potatoes are cooked through.

  86. Hi! I’m also in the UK so no biscuits dough available either :(
    I bought dumpling mix instead but I also have a package of ready rolled puff pastry dough…could I use that instead?

  87. Ok Holly, I just put it all together & will see how it turns out in a few hours….I hope as tasty looking as yours!

  88. this receipt sounds so easy to make and taste delicious

    • I’ve been getting very positive feedback on this recipe! Let me know if you end up making it, and tell me your thoughts :)

  89. Making the crockpot chicken &dumpling dinner for the weekend. Looks good.

  90. missing Chicken stock in my cupboard and just now realizing that! Can you use beef broth in place?

  91. Sounds really good & easy. I don’t want to sound like an idiot but how do I print the recipe? Thanks

  92. I am going to try this recipe. I have a 4qt cooker. Do I need to adjust the cooking time?

    • I have only made this in a 6QT slow cooker. The biscuits do puff up quite a bit so may need to add a little bit of time to ensure they’re fully cooked.

  93. Just finished making this and it is delicious. I made a few changes. I added 6 whole garlic cloves, the contents of a small can of mushrooms, and I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs which I lightly seared. I added 1/2 cup more of chicken broth to thin out the sauce since the dumplings are difficult to cook in a thick sauce. I also added the dumplings at the 3 1/2 hour mark, ahead of the thawed frozen veggies which I added at the 4 hour mark. After 5 hours, the sauce was a thick consistency, the chicken was soft but not mushy, the veggies crisp tender and the dumplings perfectly gooey.
    Since Thanksgiving is just a few days away, I was wondering if I can make this with leftover turkey meat.

    • Thank you for sharing, your version sounds delicious too!! I have had a reader make this with precooked/leftover chicken with great results. I would suggest reducing the overall cooking time so the chicken doesn’t dry out.

  94. Going to make this today, in cold snowy pa

  95. Came out good, except I rolled the biscuits out to thin.

  96. Video says cook 4 hours but your written instructions say 5 hours. Which is correct?

  97. I made it tonight and it turned out great!

  98. This recipe looks really good.I have some frozen dumpling strips in the freezer. Wonder if I could use them up using this recipe? Any suggestions please?

  99. This looks delicious! I have all the ingredients except cream of celery. Is there something I could substitute?

  100. Thank you for your recipe! I added extra garlic powder, onion powder & a bit of lipton vegetable & french onion (powdered) soup. Yummy!

  101. I made it today. However it doesn’t look like the picture. It came out brown instead of cream color. It still tastes good though

  102. Was going to make this with turkey leftovers. Would the cooking time be the same for everything without the chicken do you think?

    • The cooking time would be less. I would cook the turkey about an hour or so on high before adding the dumplings to blend the flavors. (And an additional hour after adding them).

  103. Can I stir it while it’s cooking? Novice cooker.

  104. Do you think this could work for leftovers turkey?

  105. The chicken is in the crackpot now for the chicken and dumplings recipe. Can’t wait to try it!!

  106. I made the chicken & dumplings recipe and made two changes, used chicken stock instead of broth and used a whole bag of frozen vegetables. Delicious!

  107. do you have a recipe for the dumplings please i want to try the chicken and dumplings thank u

  108. Made this and it was a huge hit!
    Any idea if this would freeze and re-heat ok?

  109. The instructions don’t indicate when to add peas and carrots?! Did I miss that part somewhere?

  110. I made this today and let me say….it was so delicious! I will definitely be making it again!

  111. Great Recipe Thanks

  112. I made the Chicken & Dumplings tonight for the first time to serve 8 people. I double the recipe and it was delicious. Exact pepper ingredient used was 1/4 teaspoon per 4 servings. Yum Yum!!!

  113. Would it make a difference if the xhicken is already cooked… or how much of a difference would it be??

    • While I’ve only made this as written, several readers have used cooked chicken or turkey with great results. I would suggest reducing the cooking time.

  114. My two daughters are both lactose intolerant. Is there an easy way to make this lactose free?

  115. Loved this recipe! I wanted to try it because my grandma used to make chicken and dumplings :) This is SO close to her yummy dish.
    I also had fun counting my pennies to see how far this recipe could take them! For me it turned out to make 6 servings totally $5.83 per serving! Awe-some!
    Thanks so much… tonight it’s Turkey Meatball with tomato sauce and spaghetti squash noodles!

  116. Can you substitute any other soup for the celery bc we can’t have it

  117. Hey, I was wondering if this recipe freezes well? I live alone and while I would love this recipe I don’t think I could eat the entire thing at once! LOL!

  118. Can I use fresh veggies if I leave them in for the entire cook time? Hoping so and to throw this all in the crockpot on my lunch break in a few hours… :)

  119. I have a 4.5 quart slow cooker, is that going to be too small?

  120. will definitely try , but will add a bit of white wine to the broth. I find it gives a nicer taste to any white sauce in a recipe. And like my own biscuits best and will allow more time for them to cook. thanks for this.

  121. I am actually cooking this right now. I did cook on low for 8 hours and the turned the crock pot to high about 20 minutes before I added the biscuits! AMAZING! Thank you

  122. Everything turned out great except the poultry seasoning was overwhelming. I used 1 teaspoon like it called for and I wished I hadn’t put any in it because it overtook the dish. Has anyone else had this problem??

  123. Made this last night and it turned out FAN-TASTIC!! Thanks for sharing your recipe! :-)

  124. I made it exactly as the recipe said and my dumplings were raw…even cooked the dumplings an extra hour and still raw…then microwaved it and it was dry on outside and raw in the center. I rolls the biscuits out and cut into 4’s..what happened?

  125. I plan on making this tomorrow night for my boyfriend…but my crock pot is only 2 1/2 quarts…can I should half the recipe? Also does the original recipe call for 4 full chicken breasts or are they halved (so only 2 full)??

  126. I’m guessing I wasn’t supposed to use grand biscuits for this recipe didn’t specify which biscuits to use.

  127. morning ladies, how do you make dumbling with biscuits pls help im interested

  128. Hello Holly I saw this beautiful meal on Facebook and I shared it and It is a meal that me and my family will enjoy thanks

  129. Can I put this recipe in a 5 quart crockpot and it’ll still be big enough??

  130. Can the biscuits be substituted with either egg noodles or Annie’s frozen dumplings? If so, at what point should they be added?

  131. Love your recipes

  132. Before the chicken is put into the crockpot, could it be cut up first instead of shredding it before serving?

  133. Made this today and it was wonderful. Loved how easy it was to make. I do not eat onions so left them out but the hubby said it still had great flavor. Thanks for the good recipes.

  134. My husband wants me to make this, but is allergic to onions. Is there a substitute for it or will it taste just as good without them?

  135. I made this for the family last night, truly simplistic and flavorful dish, reminded me of my grandmothers chicken pot pie filling.

    This is one recipe that I will take on future camping trips and put to good use in the Dutch oven.

    Thank you for sharing this with us, I look forward to trying more from you !!

  136. How do you know if the biscuits are done? I cooked mine an hour and they tasted fine, had kind of a gummy texture, but I wasn’t sure how else they would look after soaking in the soup mixture…

  137. I didn’t notice it said fresh parsley and I used dry kind is this going to affect anything?

  138. I made this for the first time this afternoon for my son and he loved it. My mother in law makes the best chicken and dumplings and that’s all my son will eat besides Cracker Barrel. I have attempted to make them several times and failed each one. To have my son say that he liked them and ate a second helping was magic! Thanks so much!

  139. I’m making this right now!! Can’t wait for dinner tonight!

  140. Going to fix for dinner tonight. However we don’t eat onions do u recommend a seasoning to replace for the flavor. Would onion powder work..and if so howuch do I recommend.

  141. Best chicken and dumplings ever! So easy to make too. My family loved it and were fighting over the leftovers. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. The only thing that I did different was to cut the biscuits into more pieces than suggested. I’m excited to make it again!

  142. Was wondering about how many pounds of chicken you used? I have some tenderloins in my fridge I am hoping I could use in this recipe.

  143. I’ve been cooking the biscuits for over an hour and they are still mushy what can I do?

    • Hmm, I’m not sure why your biscuits took longer to cook, is your slow cooker turned up to high? (it could be that your slow cooker runs at a lower temperature).

  144. Holly,

    Thank you for sharing your recipe ideas! I am new to cooking and this is my first “crock-pot” recipe. I decided to tweak it just a little by substituting my Thanksgiving Turkey (plenty) leftovers that I had frozen for sandwiches.
    Can’t wait for the kids to experience this great meal!

    God bless you,

    Steve

  145. Wait so I cook the biscuits in the oven first then put them in the crockpot?

  146. I was just wondering how many pounds of chicken does the recipe call for. It just says 4 boneless chicken breasts.

    • That would be approximately 1.5lbs.

      • Thanks for providing the weight as breast sizes can vary. For me, this actually was one half breast from a local market. The breasts were huge and two halves (left and right breast) was 3 lbs…Glad to know I’m on target! I went with just under 1.5 lb and shredded and seems proportionate to the gravy/sauce and vegetables. I went with a bag mix (10 oz) of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots and 1 cup (8 oz) frozen sweet white corn.

        Seeing so many questions on how many chicken breasts, may want to edit the recipe to reflect a weight in parenthesis as breast halves vary in size.

  147. I want to say Thank you! I have made these twice, tonight was really good.

  148. I just made this and it turned out perfect! Tasted great. Real comfort food. Definitely a keeper! Thank you!

  149. This recipe is perfect, my fiancé asks for it all the time on these cold Germany nights. Nothing needs to be altered. A bazillion thumbs up

  150. I cooked this for my family yesterday and they LOVED it! Looks like you’ve got some other really good recipes on this site. Can’t wait to try them, too. Thank you!

  151. It’s in the Crock-Pot now! I am excited to try it.

  152. How do I cut the recipe down I want to only use 2 chicken breasts. Would really appreciate any help.

  153. Making this recipe for the second time today. Very simple and easy to make…and, of course, tasty! LOVE IT!!

  154. Awesome!!!! The wife loved it. Followed the recipe as written and it was delicious!! Thanks for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

  155. Didn’t care for it at all. The poultry seasoning was a little overpowering. I’ll stick with a stove top version in the future.

  156. Dumplings didn’t wrk for me. But nice meal, anyway. Thanks!

  157. Delicious!! I made it for the first time tonight. I added 2 cups peas because we love them and I sliced up a pound of baby carrots but, otherwise kept the recipe intact. Thank you for publishing this recipe

  158. Can this recipe be doubled? If so, does the cook time change?

  159. Made this for dinner tonight. And at hour 4 i added the biscuits. Let them cook for an hour and they werent done. Let them cook for another hour and the biscuits still werent done. So far my its been cooking for a total of 6 hours. And my dinners not done.

  160. Hi! Have you ever made this using the “low” setting? I’d like to leave this in the crockpot while at work.

    • I personally haven’t however another reader cooked it for 7 hours on low and then added her biscuits and cooked for an additional 90 minutes (on high) with great results. Please let us know how it turns out for you!

  161. I misread and bump cream of mushroom instead of cream of celery will that affect anything?
    I also got chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts will that affect anything?

    • The cream of mushroom will change the flavor slightly but I’m sure it will still be delicious. Chicken thighs should work just fine in this recipe.

  162. This is on the crock pot now, only it looks funny and not creamy like the picture. I followed the recipe exactly and my crock pot is only 6 months old. What did I do wrong?

  163. Regarding the chicken/dumpling recipe, what would happen if i added cubed potatoes and at what point should I add them? I bought all of the ingredients and want to make this today, Thank you!

  164. I am trying the chicken and dumplings today in my crockpot.

  165. Loved this recipe!!!!

  166. This recipe looks amazing. What kind of poultry seasoning did you use? Thanks so much!

  167. Looking to make in a power pressure cooker / instant pot – any idea of the cooking time?

  168. How would you tailor this recipe for a 4 qt crockpot?

  169. I made Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings for dinner this evening and I had to waddle away from the table, because I was so full and it was so good! Everyone loved it. This is the second recipe I’ve tried from spendwithpennies and the first was also delicious (Cabbage and Noodles). I can hardly wait to try another one. Variations: I used a whole bag of frozen vegetables and I only had two (huge) chicken breasts but it didn’t seem to matter. Nom nom nom.

    • Hi Diane,
      I am so glad to hear that you have enjoyed the recipes! I hope you find many more on site that your family loves!

  170. I’m interested in doubling this recipe with the same amount of chicken I wont if the cook time would be slightly higher ?

  171. every thing looks good I will try

  172. If I buy a rotisserie chicken would I just need to cook biscuits for an hour in crock pot? Or will it need longer?

  173. Can you shread the chicken jp before the veggies n biscuits?

  174. I just took the lid off to add the veggies and biscuits. It looks very liquidy, will this thicken up in the next hour of cooking? Thanks!

  175. Hi, Will it matter if my chicken breasts are pre sliced from the store like cutlets? Also does anyone have a favorite biscuit to use? There are so many choices. Taste test publish rec Grand Flake original, but that is for baking/eating, not adding to recipe. I am making this today. I hope to hear back soon.

  176. Terrible. My husband was trying to be polite when he said it was “edible” – thanks, hon. Turns out nothing like the pic- author for sure thickened it with a roux. So many “looks great, will try” comments but not actual reviews. Well, here’s your first. Back to the drawing board with this one.

    • I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy this recipe, we loved it!

      There are plenty of reviews here as well as on the Facebook post from readers who have made (and loved) it (you can also scroll through comments here).

      This recipe was definitely not thickened with a roux or any other sort of thickening agent. It was made (and photographed) exactly as written.

  177. This sounds yummy! To save time, do you think if I used a Rotisserie chicken and just cooked for an hour on high, would that work?

  178. Is the Chicken and Dumplings recipe supposed to be creamy or more soup based? I have the chicken in the crockpot now and still have to add the veggies and biscuits.

  179. Hey there,
    Is there a way I can make this without chicken? I know I would need to trade out the broth and cream of chicken with a vegetarian stock and a vegetarian cream soup, but would the cooking time change since I don’t need to cook the chicken thoroughly?

    Thanks!

  180. Wtf, I went through a half a reem of paper printing the whole deal. It sounds like a good crock pot meal. But fuck Holly and all that shit.

    • Nice Barry… thanks. LOL.

      The other option would be that you could use the print button to the right of the ingredients and it would simply print on one nice little sheet. :)

  181. Ok, so I made this last night. I only did 1/2 recipe cuz there are only 2 of us and my husband won’t eat much leftovers. He really liked it and would like me to make it again. I liked it. It was easy, though you have to have the time & forethought to do it or have ingredients on hand. I could have soup. I guess biscuits keep a while. I am not an onion person, so I would have to be sure to keep some. I used frozen peas and fresh carrots, probably as much as the full recipe, therefore doubling the amount. Oh I skipped the parsley. I don’t have anything against it other than I hate buying it for a little amount and throwing the rest away. I need to plant some next year. I’m not sure how much I like the rolled out muffins. I guess it is supposed to be chicken & dumplings. May be next time i may just try patting them down a bit with my hands before cutting them. I might like them a little fluffier. Also, I do have some left over. I saved some muffins to bake for today. I figured the “dumplings” would be really soggy. Not sure as this is my first time, but that was my idea. Thanks for the recipe.

    • I’m glad both you and your husband liked this recipe! For the parsley, you could always use dried. If you ever do buy fresh, wash and dab dry the leftovers. Set them on paper towels to dry out completely (a few days) and the dried parsley will keep in your pantry for months. :)

  182. I have this cooking right now. I am already impressed with the wonderful smell. Can’t wait to eat dinner!

  183. Made this tonight for dinner. It got two thumbs up from my husband, and I thought it was pretty darn good myself, considering the substitutions I had to make (cream of mushroom instead of chicken and an alternative to the poultry seasoning). My two-year old even ate the vegetables. This one is a keeper.

  184. How would you recommend increasing the recipe if I am cooking it for 4 adults and 4 kids? This days it only serves 4 so I am worried it is not enough. Thanks!

  185. Should I use the same time if I double the recipe?

  186. Hi Holly,
    Probably a dumb question but I don’t bake the biscuits before I throw them in right?

  187. Would someone please explain what ‘refrigerated biscuits’ are?

    • Refrigerated biscuits are available in most North American grocery stores in near the cheese or dairy. They would be similar to an Australian Scone.

  188. This recipe does look good however, this is not chicken and dumplings. This is more of a chicken pot pie. Chicken and dumplings does not contain peas and carrots. I am a traditionalist when it comes to chicken and dumplings. Chicken, broth, dumplings, salt and ground black pepper.

  189. Can 5 hours on high be converted to a low setting time? 10 hrs? I’m new to crock pot cooking. Thanks!

  190. If I froze half of this, would it still be good? If so, how would you recommend re-heating it?

  191. Do you know how many calories are in each serving!?

  192. Have you ever tried cooking on low for 10-12 hours? Reason I asked is both my Wife and I work. Was hoping to find a recipe for chicken and dumplings that would allow me to turn the slow cooker on in the morning. Then add the dumplings when I get home from work.

    Thanks

    • I haven’t tried cooking this on low for 10-12 hours. If you do cook it on low, the biscuits will take much longer to cook (even if you turn it up to high) as it will take a while for the slow cooker to reach a higher temperature.

  193. Made This Tonight. It was excellent!

  194. I see mushrooms in the picture of the chicken and biscuits but I don’t see them on the recipe list. Did you add mushrooms.

  195. Question…..approximately how many people does this serve? BIG FAMILY here. Thanks!!

  196. Can’t wait to try this! Sounds and looks absolutely delicious. Always looking for new things to try with chicken.

  197. This looks like a easy and tasty recipe that I will be making soon, like tomorrow.

  198. I made this for dinner tonite. It was so very delicious! I didn’t have cream of chicken soup so I used cream of mushroom with the celery. I also added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of celery seed. The biscuits cooked perfect in an hour! I will be making this again soon. Thank you for posting it was a big hit with my family!

  199. After 90 minutes, my biscuits still were not cooked. The overall taste was very good. However, next time I think I will cook the biscuits as normal in the oven and then pour the crockpot mixture over the biscuits. The dish just needed something else to go with it to take away from the stew-like texture.

  200. Hello! I’m really looking forward to making this! My question is: has anyone tried freezing this in containers after it’s cooked? I’m worried I won’t be able to eat the whole recipe and will have to half it instead. Thank you!

    • I haven’t tried freezing it myself however one of my readers on Facebook told me she froze it and it reheated perfectly. If you do try it, please let us know how it works out. :)

  201. I just made this and I did not like the taste at all I followed the recipe exactly but to me it doesn’t not taste good

  202. I am making it now snd usef a can of chicken gravy instead of the cream of celery soup how much of a difference will that make? It taste good so far just added veg and biscuits let you know how it turns out.

  203. Have you ever tried adding potatoes with the chicken?

  204. I was really looking forward to this recipe as it looked scrumptious and easy to make. Easy – yes, delicious – not so much. Both DH and I felt it lacked any flavor and had to add a Lipton onion packet to give it some seasoning. Probably won’t be making this again but look forward to other recipes.

  205. Looks so good

  206. I made this tonight and it was great! The only changes were that I used cream of chicken soup with herbs because our store was out of the regular and I thin sliced the onion instead of dicing. I think the extra herbs gave it more flavor! Came out great, even picky teenage girl loved it!

  207. Just made this and my husband loved it. Thanks

  208. Chick casserole

  209. We did not care for the Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings. The canned biscuits, which seemed like a really good idea at the time, are way to sweet for a savory dish like this one.

  210. I’m going to cook this even tho my husband does not like chicken n dumplins. But me n my Mom-n-law love them! So wish me luck!!!

  211. This is absolutely delicious! Highly recommend it. My hubby loved it.

  212. Habe you done this on low setting?

  213. Great taste! Perfect!

    I changed the process and ONLY for presentation purposes:

    I shredded the chicken, added the vegetables, then topped with the biscuit strips.

    After the biscuit strips cooked and formed a dome, I put the ceramic pot of the slow cooker into the oven on LOW broiler and browned the top of the biscuit dome.

    Beautiful presentation and excellent taste.

  214. I agree with other commenters that the directions as far as timing are quite confusing. I read the recipe over multiple times and was sure that you indicated to cook on high for 5 hours and then add veggies and biscuits. We will see how this turns out! It smells great and I am hoping it’s not overcooked.

    I would suggest updating the recipe to be clearer on timing. Thanks so much!

  215. Updated comment: This was delicious! The extra 45 min or so cooked on high made no difference at all. Thanks for a definite keeper of a recipe. My whole family enjoyed dinner tonight.

  216. If You Thaw the breasts prior to cooking and precut them, may knock some time off preparation.

  217. Hi Holly! Anything I need to know if I double the recipe? I’m cooking for a family of 7 including myself. Thank you so much I want to make this tonight!

    • Just that it fills the slow cooker quite full. I’m not so sure you’ll fit double the biscuits in the slow cooker so you could certainly bake some on the side if needed.

  218. Could I substitute regular chicken broth for low sodium?

  219. Love these recipes, easy quick and good.

  220. I made this once already & there wasn’t a drop left! The family loved it! Am making it tonighr but I am using chopped carrots, broccoli, cauliflower mix I had left over ftom another rdcipe

  221. I’m making this today and can’t wait for dinner!! Looks incredible:) Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  222. I love chicken and dumplings and did not know how to make it. Thank you for the recipe, I know i’ll enjoy it.

  223. How would this be made on the stove top?

  224. I see it says 4 servings – do you typically have left overs? I’m thinking about making this for 14 people and want to make sure that I have enough. Do you think making a triple batch is enough? And could I do a double batch in a 6qt crock pot or do you think that would impact cooking? Thanks!

    Katelyn

    • You could possibly get 4-5 servings if you served with a salad and bread however I find this is pretty close to 4 servings. I would not recommend doubling this recipe in a slow cooker as the biscuits may not cook. If you do double this recipe, I would suggest cooking the biscuits separately and spooning the chicken mixture overtop.

  225. If you don’t use the can of mushroom soup should u double the cream of chicken soup to thicken more or what?

  226. Should u double up the cream of chicken soup to thicken if not using the other soups??

  227. This looks fabulous. I will be making it today.

  228. For you Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings….I have a brand new 8 Qt. Crock Pot I just bought. Can I double this recipe for my new crock pot? Thanks and have a great day!

  229. Looks delicious. Bought what I didn’t have already and making it for supper tomorrow. I think I can smell it already. Thanks !!

  230. Is there any way to spread up the cooking time? Like cut chicken smaller or precook biscuits?

  231. If I cut the chicken into small cubes before cooking, do you think that would change anything (time to cook, too dry chicken, etc)? I’m thinking that with all the liquid it would be alright, and then I wouldn’t need to shred the chicken later. Thoughts?

  232. I have made this a few times and family loved it! Thanks for such a great recipe! Just for the record, if you read the article carefully it’s very accurate and clear. (I’m surprised some people can dress themselves sometimes)

  233. Can’t wait to try this recipe tomorrow. I will let you all know how my family likes it.

  234. Is it ok to use can veggies I’m Maki g this tom I’ve made this before but not with chicken broth and it was good and not veggies

  235. What’s the nutritional breakdown, please?
    I’m sodium restricted……

  236. The recipe calls for chicken broth but in the instructions it never mentions it….

  237. What if my chicken is skinless but bone in? How do I adjust my cooking time? Or should I just take it off the bone before cooking?

  238. You mentioned several times about how to print the recipe. When I click on the “print recipe’, I get a blank copy on the print page and it also prints out blank. Is there a way you can email me a copy so I can successfully print it out? Would like to make this tomorrow.

  239. I look at your recipes every day and they all look fabulous! I haven’t cooked any yet, but am going to as soon as I am better and can stand for a greater length of time in the kitchen. Thank you for all your recipes!

  240. Can I put this in oven? If so what degree?

  241. Can you cook this on low for 8 hours?

    • Yes, this can be cooked on low. I would suggest adding your dumplings earlier (about 2 hours) as the temperature will be lower even if you turn it up to high).

  242. Hi, so I’m not sure what happened but mine came out super watery! I followed the printed directions to the T and it didn’t come out creamy like the video.. not sure what I’ve done wrong.

    • Were your chicken breasts frozen? Certain brands of chicken have water added. Did you add the condensed soups right out of the can without mixing with water?

  243. Does this recipe refrigerate well? How do you warm the next day?

    • Hi Tiffany,
      If you have leftovers, they will refrigerate well. I usually reheat mine on a lower setting on the stove top. You can of course microwave them too, if you prefer.

  244. I got canned veggies,is that ok and should I add them at the same time or wait longer?

  245. This is a chicken and biscuits recipe, not chicken and dumplings.

  246. I was wondering how thin you roll your biscuits? My beef stew and dumplings dumplings are just plopped on top so this way is new to me. I am going to add some potatoes too and use fresh carrots (that is what I have) adding them at the start but some peas and corn at end.
    Thanks for the inspiration

  247. Trying the chicken and dumplings tonight.

  248. Hi making this now I just added the veggies & pillsbury biscuits for the hour now. My question is I used Southern Homestyle Grands..they didn’t have the smaller biscuits. I did flatten them well & cut the strips…I hope it’ll be ok given The Southern & Grands were used? It was quite juicy upon adding these ingredients so hopefully it’ll workout?

  249. I LOVE this website!!! What wonderful recipes!!! I can’t thank you enough!!!

  250. can the biscuits be cut into squares? will the time need to be adjusted? thank you

    • You can cut them in any shape you’d like. If you cut them large or they aren’t rolled very thin, they make take longer to cook. As long as they’re rolled fairly thin they should be just fine.

  251. I know this will be good we are chicken lovers. The directions are very clear and I don’t see how so many asked the questions they did, unless they are first time cookers. Will rate this when I cook it. Thanks for sharing it and the others as well.

  252. I love chicken, I could eat it everyday! These are some delicious looking recipes that I can’t wait to cook and try!! Thank you.

  253. Could you please tell me which kind of canned biscuits you use? In the video is a 10 count can of Pillsbury biscuits (which they no longer make – came in a 4 pack of cans), but, the recipe calls for 8 count of biscuits.

  254. I didn”t see anyone adding a generous dash or two of tabasco sauce to it. Oh yummy.

  255. My biscuits were extremely pliable and way too soft, never seemed to settle in a circular form.

  256. Can I make this and start with frozen chicken breasts?

  257. I had no cream of celery so I used cream of chicken and mushroom. Do u think it will still be ok?

  258. I made this tonight for my family and they loved it I’m going to try making it again as the winter goes on. It was very filling, delicious, and tasty thank you for sharing this recipe.

  259. I was planning on using leftover shredded chicken, would i need to change the time or heat setting since im not using raw chicken?
    Thank you, cant wait to give this a try!!!

    • I would reduce the cooking time slightly. You will want to allow enough time for the flavors to blend (and the onions to cook) but don’t want to dry the chicken out.

  260. This may sound like a dumb question but can I add frozen chicken breast and possibly adjust the time?

  261. Can this be frozen for multiple meals?

  262. How do I know when the biscuits are done? They still look pretty gooey, but they’ve been in there for over an hour at this point.

  263. Made it tonight and was amazed! Loved it and my husband did too. A question, I cut the biscuits up and they stayed at the top. They cooked just fine but they didn’t mix in the soup like yours did. What did I do wrong?

  264. Jeesh.. these ladies sure have a problem reading. It is very clear in the instructions to cook for 4 hours then add veggies and biscuits and cook another hour. It’s not you. I find literacy in America is slowly decreasing.

  265. I made the crockpot chicken pot pie. It was good, but next time I will cut back on the poultry seasoning. The amount specified was too much.

  266. Just made this and OMG so yummy! It was so easy to make and your instructions were spot on. It really does taste like a chicken pot pie.

  267. Has anyone tried this reheated? I want to drop this off for a family after a hospital stay. Thanks!

  268. Biscuits are not dumplings. This looks like a good chicken and biscuit recipe. I will say the way you treat the biscuits is closer to proper dumplings than I normally see in chicken and biscuits recipes.

  269. if I am using gnocchi instead of biscuits, when should I add them and how long do I let them cook?

    • I would add them at the 4 hour mark, like you would the biscuits, then continue to cook for another 4 hours.

  270. I am so glad I found this recipe. I made it for the lady i work for and we both really liked it. I only made one change when I made it at home. I doubled the chicken broth to 4 cups and added about 1/2 cup of water to the soup mixture to make it smoother. I found that by the time it got done the gravy was pretty thick. So the extra broth helped and it’s still a really good consistency. Thanks for a really easy meal!

  271. I’m new to the crock pot cooking.
    I am making mine with precooked chicken. Will I have to let it cool for four hours still before putting in the dough? Or could I cook the sauce and onions until it bubbles then put in the chicken and dough for an hour? Also during step two when it is heating up, do I stir at any point or just leave it be until putting in the dough.

    • Items cooked in the slow cooker do not require stirring. I haven’t tried this recipe using precooked chicken however you will want to make sure your slow cooker is very hot when adding the dough so it cooks completely.

  272. I didn’t sift through all the comments so I apologize if I missed this in the recipe or if it was asked/clarified later on but at what point do you add the chicken broth?

  273. can sub chicken breast for boneless chicken thighs?

  274. How many people does this serve? I want to add it to my Weight Watchers plan.

  275. I just saw this recipe today. I’ve never been a fan of cream of celery so could I substitute it with cream of mushroom?

  276. Holly, I have it in the crockpot now. There sure are some idiots out there. Very well written and simply explained. Just tell people to read. If they are too dumb to figure it out, let them starve. You will be doing the world a favor.

  277. Can I make this in my instant pot?

  278. We love this recipe! My daughter made this for us when were visiting her. It is her husband’s favorite meal. It is in our Crockpot right now.

  279. I made this to bring to a crockpot potluck dart tournament ! It was GONE before the others were half gone. This is so delicious, have made it 3x now. I did make 50 % more to make sure it was a full crockpot. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • I am so glad you have enjoyed the recipe, Gina! This always disappears fast when I make it too!

  280. Since my mom and I both had some of the ingredients we pooled our efforts (and most of what she bought!) to make this.
    I would vary the amount of biscuit rounds depending on personal preference. The biscuits/dumplings DID turn out well. I just think all 8 was too many and would cut that in half.
    My mom and I also agree that it was pretty thick. Maybe because we’re both used to more SOUP and less STEW for Chicken and Dumplings.
    I’m open to suggestions on how to thin this out considerably so you end up with has more of a broth at the end than a gravy like rue as a result. Add the water for the soups perhaps? More chicken broth? I think that might make it too salty.

    • I think I know now what the problem was- we were using a 4 QUART crock pot. So things cooked up faster than normal.
      Any chance of converting this recipe to use with 4 qt crock pots instead?

  281. Do the chicken breasts need to be thawed or may they be frozen when adding?
    Thank you!

  282. Im confused… Where does the chicken broth come in at on the chicken and dumplings?

  283. Holly, thank you cooking right now, my husband can’t wait! Directions are clear. Thank you

  284. How would you adjust the recipe if using ready cooked rotisserie chicken from Costco?

    • While I’ve only made this as written, several readers have used cooked chicken or turkey with great results. I would suggest reducing the cooking time.

  285. This recipe sounds like it would be delicious. However, is there any way to make it gluten free? I have yet to find cream of any kind of soup that is gluten free. I know what to do with the biscuits but not the soup. Any suggestions wood be welcomed. Thanks

    • You could search for a homemade alternative to condensed soups however dairy doesn’t often hold up well in the slow cooker so it’s hard to say how this would work.

  286. TFS!! I was thinking about making chicken and dumplings this morning… AND tonight I saw your video…. LOOKS YUMMY!! I have never had them in a slow cooker… So I can’t wait to try this!!
    Also wanted to say thank you for replying to everyone… I have been to other blogs…. and u post something or just ask a question… and get no reply…

    • Aww! Thanks Shannon! I hope you enjoy this recipe. It is one of our favorites! And it is my pleasure to reply to everyone. I am so grateful for our wonderful community! <3

  287. If I cook this all day, could I cook the chicken on low for 6 hours, then do veggies and biscuits for 60-90 minutes on high? Just trying to figure out a good conversion. Thanks!!!

  288. Do you make this with frozen or thawed chicken? I was assuming thawed? Thanks!

  289. This looks really good, but I am used to making homemade dumplings, kinda roundish and fluffy. Do you think I could slightly flatten the biscuits and cut them into quarters (4 pieces)? Maybe 1 1/2 to 2 cans?

  290. Can this re-heat in the microwave or is the stovetop better?

  291. I absolutely love this recipe! Your directions were simple, easy to follow, and well explained.

  292. Where does the two cups of chicken broth come in?

  293. I’m just wondering if you started with frozen or thawed chicken?

  294. Just add potatoes diced and you have potpie, though I use cream of mushroom instead of cream of celery (I put chopped celery in instead).

  295. Do you have to use low sodium broth?

  296. I made the Chicken and Dumplings for a Memorial potluck it was so good. Thank you for sharing.

  297. Chicken and dumplings gonna make this thank you do much for the reciepe!

  298. To be fair to the questioners: The printable version doesn’t have the (after four hours of cooking time) stipulation.

  299. If i am doing this in a Lg pot on top of the stove, what temp. Should i use, and how long. Thanks

  300. Made this tonight and it turned out wonderful!

  301. MADE THE CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS TODAY. I ADDED A HALF STICK BUTTER AND COVERED BISCUTS/DUMPLINGS WITH GARLIC POWDER FOR THE LAST HOUR. VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  302. Can I put a whole chicken in the crock pot and after it Cooks take the chicken off the bone and then add dumplings and veggies??? I got lucky and found your sight…

  303. This looks excellent. Will try it this afternoon/evening. Thank you for such a lovely, clear recipe!

  304. Why call it dumplings when its biscuits? I wish I could make good dumplings my Mom made them to perfection!

  305. I hate cutting onions, it takes me almost a half hour because my eye’s start burning. Is there anything I can put to substitute for the onions? love making this recipe! It’s a family favorite now.

  306. there has to be a better way of printing recipes from here i had to print 146 pages for one recipe.

  307. This was delicious! l will definitely be keeping this recipe… It was very easy to make and the whole family loved it. I only had 3 large chicken breasts in the house so that’s what I used instead of 4 and luckily it still turned out perfectly yummy! My biscuits were done perfectly in one hour like the recipe says. Thanks for the easy dinner!

  308. Love this recipe! Great tasting and so easy to make. Definitely a go-to recipe for me!

  309. What if you only have a 5 quart crockpot? Can it be done in that.

  310. Just made this for dinner tonight. To hot outside to use the oven. This was VERY delicious. My whole family really loved it! Would cook this again.

    • I am so glad your family enjoyed the recipe, Cheryl! I love a good crock pot dinner on a hot day!

  311. Another amazing recipe- LOVED by the whole family! I loved that I whipped it together in 10 minutes.

  312. Made a version of this for too many years to count. Add a can of cream of mushroom soup. Ditch the poultry seasoning-use 1 t each of , parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, celery salt and marjoram. 1/4 t red pepper. Make sure there is little/no fat on chicken (or dish will be oily) and cut into thin strips first (easy to do with par-frozen chicken and saves a step-will not affect cooking time if strips are thin enough-less than half an inch thick). You will not need to remove the chicken to shred and your dumplings won’t get broken up by removing whole chicken breasts.

  313. Made this several times for my family, and it always turns out great. I do a couple things differently though. I cook it for 5 hours then take some kitchen tongs, and grab for the chicken. The chicken is so tender it falls apart in the crockpot, so there’s no need to pull them out and shred. Then I pinch pieces of the biscuits, and throw them on top of the mixture. I like the bits of puffy biscuits way better than the flattened strips, plus the puffy bits tend to stay whole. Thanks for the recipe.

  314. What is the carb count on the crock pot chicken and dumplings recipe

  315. Can you use the crescent roll dough or does it have to be biscuit? Also, can you use fresh carrots?

    • I have only prepared this recipe as written, so I am not sure how this would work. Should you try to make these adaptations, let me know how it works.

  316. What does it mean 1can refridgerator biscuits I’m a bit puzzled with the last line of the method

  317. MY Crockpot is 7 qts and cooks either high 4 hours or 6, what do you recommend?

  318. Can’t wait to try today!

  319. This looks delicious! I’m going to make it this weekend

  320. i HAVE BEEN READY FOR SEVERAL MONTHS TO MAKE THESE AND FINALLY LOOKED IT UP. I KNEW I WAS MISSING SOMETHING, SURE ENOUGH IT WAS THE POULTRY SEASONING. THANKS IM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS DISH.

  321. Can this be a freezer meal? If so, what would you do differently?

  322. Dumplings never cooked. Everything else is delicious. Except there are tea dumplings mixed throughout. Guess this is a pizza night

  323. Yes I made this and my family loved it making it again

  326. This recipe is AWESOME!! The ONLY downside is that I have to suffer the amazing smell of this cooking – definitely drool worthy! My family ate every bit of this, with not one complaint…that rarely happens here. I’m putting this in the Favorites file for my recipes! Thank you very much!! :)
