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

Don’t get me wrong, I love Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings from scratch but having a busy household with kids, I know that sometimes time is short and I don’t have hours to spend cooking a full Sunday dinner from scratch.

This recipe uses a few little short cuts to make it really quick and easy to put together while not skimping on flavor.

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 (there’s a reason this recipe has a five star rating ★★★★★)!

Quick prep with optimal results is my kind of cookin’.

I use a can of premade biscuits to make the dumplings to make this dish totally effortless.

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 (or use Biscuit Mix).

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.

While I know not everyone likes vegetables with their chicken and dumplings, I sure do!

I love the addition of frozen veggies for color, flavor and some extra nutrients (plus frozen veggies are pretty effortless).

If veggies in your chicken and dumplings isn’t your thing, feel free to leave them out (but don’t skip the onion, it adds lots of flavor)!

How to Make Perfect Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

As easy as this recipe is, here are a few tips to make sure it turns out perfectly for you!

  • This recipe is best made in a 6QT crock pot.
  • While this chicken and dumplings recipe uses frozen veggies, they should be defrosted before adding to the slow cooker.
  • My biscuits are always perfectly cooked after 60 minutes however some slow cookers may require extra time to cook the biscuits.
  • Open the lid as little as possible as the slow cooker can lose heat quickly and this can cause your biscuits to not cook properly.
  • Boneless chicken thighs make an excellent addition to this recipe.
  • Once the biscuits are cooked through they should still have a soft, slightly doughy dumpling-like texture.
  • Depending on the size of your slow cooker, this recipe may not double well.  To double this recipe, cook the chicken portion as directed.  Additional dumplings can be cooked on the stovetop or baked in the oven as biscuits.

Dairy (such as cream or milk) doesn’t always do well in the slow cooker; it can often separate or curdle so I’ve subbed in condensed soup in this recipe.

Condensed soups make a great addition to crock pot recipes as they tend to hold up very well in the slow cooker (plus they add lots of flavor to this recipe) without the risk of curdling.

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

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.

It’s really important that 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.

Easy Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings. Juicy chicken breasts cook to tender perfection in the slow cooker in a rich creamy sauce. Shortcut dumplings make this delicious comforting meal effortless.
  • 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)
  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.
Recipe Notes

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

  1. I’m making this now but I cut the chicken in cubes before starting the crock pot. Should I adjust cooking time to less than 5 hours?

  2. This recipe is going into the saved folder! I made it exactly as written. After dinner, I couldn’t wait for lunch so I could eat more of it. Amazing!

  3. I have made this a hundred times it’s delicious. I have never used frozen chicken though and I have looked and looked for a comment on frozen chicken, will I be able to do this and just increase cooking time?

    • While I haven’t made it with frozen chicken, I’m sure it would work just fine! The increase in cook time will be very minimal, maybe an extra hour. Let us know how it goes!

  4. I saw in an earlier comment that gnocchi would work. When would you add it in and for how long would you let it cook in the crock pot?

  5. Hello, I would love to make this but in less time. Could you give me any advice in what i can do to make it faster? I am planning on cutting up the chicken breast. Thank you!

  6. Lovely and delicious recipe. Can I use vegetable broth on it?

  7. Just made this! Didn’t have the poultry seasoning so used Adobe seasoning. My house smells amazing. Just waiting the last 30 mins. Biscuits don’t seem to be rising. But smells amazing.

  8. Im planning on making this before I leave for work, I work a 6-7 hour shift and no one will be home so start it a few hours in or take it off early and add the biscuits, do you have any recommendations or an approximate cooking time I could do on low while I’m gone all day? 

  9. Is the 640 calories per serving or for the entire dish?

  10. Just wondering if we can use something called Bisquick?
    I think it’s would be great but would need your advice.
    Thank you

  11. I’m about half way through my cooking time and it seems very runny. Does it thicken as it cooks?

    • It should thicken up a bit, the biscuits will soak up some of the liquid. Chicken and noodles is generally soupy, if you watch the video you can see the texture as it should be.

      • Good morning.  I want to make this today however my crock pot is 8.5 quart.  He w should I work the recipe ? Don’t think a full doubling will fit. Thanks in advance !  

    • Courtland / Holly – I believe a correction needs to be made to the ingredients list. INGREDIENTS indicate using 2 Cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth, but the Directions, Video and Write-up clearly indicate using Cream of Celery Soup and Cream of Chicken Soup. I can see how it would be runny if using the broth. I plan to make this, but with the soup. It looks delicious!!!!

  12. I made this. In my opinion, the poultry seasoning ruined it. But I am not going to waste it. I am going to rinse ALL of it and get some more soup and reheat the whole thing. I can not eat it as it is. Other than that, it was easy. Guess poultry seasoning is just not to my taste. I will leave the dumplings out till last so they do not get over cooked. Love the veges in it though!

    • Sorry you didn’t enjoy it, I love the flavor the poultry seasoning adds. You could certainly leave it out next time or just add a sprinkle of your favorite seasonings.

  13. Tuesdays are crock pot day because I work an hour away from home. Got the hubbys help to finish this one.
    My family absolutely loved this recipe and it was super easy. The good news is that I cooked it on low for about 11 1/2 hrs and it was perfectly fine when my husband added the veggies.
    Super yummy! My husband said that he wasn’t very hungry. Then this same man got another BIG bowl. This makes me happy! I love satisfying the family.
    Thank you for the easy recipe and the smiles on everyone’s faces.

    • Oh I’m so happy to hear that this was loved so much by your family Jinx!! Thank you for sharing your story :)

  14. WOW! I have made this recipe all summer! My son absolutely LOVES it. He’s a college student, and can’t wait to come home to have these chicken and dumplings! It’s now his very favorite meal. Thank you so much, and I would NOT change a thing! Best recipe ever! Would love to have more of your yummy and easy recipes! Thanks again!!!

  15. it’s my first time trying to cook this recipe and instead of putting it on high setting I accidentally kept it on warm for 5 hours….. I feel bad if I’d have to waste it any recommendations you wild have.

  16. Thank You Judy

  17. I had so much fun making this dish. I’m eating it right now It’s delicious and was so easy to make

  18. Hey Holly? Sounds very yummy! Can I bake the chicken, soup and chicken broth? I currently don’t have a crock pit. Just thought I’d ask. Thank you!

  19. I have chicken breasts that weigh almost 1 pound each and thinking that is WAY overkill… tried reading through comments but there are so many… saw substituting of chicken tenders for breasts… Do you know approximately how many pounds your four chicken breasts equaled?

  20. Could I make this recipe with gnocchi instead of biscuits?

    • Absolutely, I haven’t tried it but I know other readers that have and have said its amazing! Please let us know how it works out!

  21. Hi! I’m sooo excited to make this tonight for my family! I must admit, I’ve never cooked with biscuits before. Could you detail a little more about the shape they’re supposed to be when they go in? One I roll them, do I want to flatten them out into little rectangles or …? Thanks for advising!!

    • Watch the video for a demonstration Elisa! Flatten them out and then cut it into 4 strips :) Enjoy!!

  22. Tonight was the first time I made this crockpot chicken and dumplings and it turned out great. It was the easiest recipe to follow and the whole family loved it including my 3 and 8-year-old grandsons. We have been trying to teach my daughter-in-law how to cook and I told her she could do this without any issues and that’s saying a lot. I want to thank you for the recipe and making dinner simple and delicious. I love this website and I have passed it on to friends that enjoy cooking.

  23. Best chicken and dumplings I have ever had. My whole family loved it!

  24. When do you put the chicken broth in the crockpot? I see 2 cups of broth under ingredients but there is no mention of it anywhere in the directions. Thank you! 

  25. I love this recipe! It’s perfect for a weeknight meal. I let it cook all day while I’m at work then just add the veggies and biscuits once I get home. It’s so delicious, too! I make it all the time. 

  26. Very easy and inexpensive! Love it! Great flavor! Will make again and will share the recipe!

  27. I used the 98% fat free cream of chicken soup and 98% fat free cream of celery soup to make it a little healthier. Tastes great!

  28. Can’t get biscuits in UK could you suggest a recipe or quick cheats way of Making the dumplings and could I substitute the celery soup we don’t like celery in my house or at work was thinking of trying it at both thanks in advance Mrs Harrison UK

    • Canned biscuits are similar to a scone dough. You could substitute your favorite dough or even gnocchi. Any canned cream soup would work in place of hte celery soup. Enjoy!

  29. So easy and my husband loved it! He said it is a definite keeper! I followed the recipe exactly as written.

  30. Great recipe. Something I realized is this can also be used for the filling in pot pies.

    Another little trick for shredding chicken breast, depending on how well you want your chicken shredded, if you want chunky pieces or prefer finely shredded, but for me it’s a lot easier and faster to use my electric hand mixer to shred the chicken. It only takes two or three minutes literally to shred all the chicken that way. I would imagine this would also work great for shredded beef or pork.

  31. So good! Any easy, thanks!

  32. Holly, I just made this recipe, slow cooker and chicken dumplings. So easy to make and delicious! Thank you for also submitting nutritional facts too. I’m so happy I found your site, Spendwithpennies! Healthy meals are what I’m looking for and I have several of great ones I’m going to try. 

  33. Delicious I made one crockpot for my husband and I. And my son wanted his own so 2 crockpots on countertop

  34. Just sitting down to this….excellent. I used fresh carrots and a couple of potatoes layered over the onion.  I prefer summer savoury to poultry seasoning.  Absolutely delicious. 

  35. Can I use canned crescent rolls?   That’s all I have and I am snowed in!

  36. I’m looking forward to making this. I must admit that this is the first time I copied all the text instead of just the ingredients and directions. You made it very enticing with your notes and asides. Thanks!

  37. Made this for dinner tonight. Easy and delicious! Will definitely make again 

  38. Was all ready to make this tomorrow. Had everything I needed but the 4 chicken breasts. Well the hubby shopper just announced he bought “STRIPS” and not the WHOLE BREASTS! I feel that the strip will cook faster than the whole breasts therefore throwing off my cooking times…CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS, PLEASE???

    • Many readers have had success with chicken tenders. While I haven’t tried it, I wouldn’t think you would need to change the cooking time.

    • My husband did the same and bought chicken breast tender strips and it worked out absolutely fine. Having it again for dinner tonight. Yum yum.

  39. Love this recipe!! So easy and worked perfectly. Great for third shift.

  40. I work for a group home that has three very different clients with different tastes and they all loved this recipe 

  41. Is there any substitution for the cream of celery?  Nobody in my household can stand the smell/taste/texture of celery.

  42. What is the serving size in this recipe? I’ve made it several times and it is delicious. We have it at least 2 times and don’t finish the full batch. 

  43. Would the cooking time change if I use chicken tenders instead of breasts?

    • Many readers have had success with chicken tenders. While I haven’t tried it, I wouldn’t think you would need to change the cooking time.

  44. This is an easy and super delicious recipe. I actually used cream of broccoli soup (because it was what I had on hand) and it was wonderful! When (not if) I make this again, I may play around with the vegetables.

    I did not have an onion so I used onion flakes — lots — seemed to work just fine.

  45. Tried this recipe tonight and it was terrific on a cold Midwestern day. I used boneless, skinless thighs that were still a bit frozen when I started and used cream of mushroom instead of cream of celery because I had it on hand. I did add some celery salt to my chicken stock to keep the flavor. Also, I cooked it for about an hour and twenty minutes after adding the biscuits because they were layered and I was afraid they wouldn’t cook completely – they did. Lastly, I held about half the vegetables until I shredded the chicken so they wouldn’t be over cooked. All in all it was a great and easy recipe, I will definitely make it again.

  46. This is a fantastic recipe and I will share it with others and make it again. 5 stars for sure 

  47. Mine didn’t come out with any liquid at all. The meat was juicy and the veggies and dumplings were good..but it’s like the soup and broth evaporated or was a packed way into the chicken . That. Was upsetting.

  48. Wonderful meal! Have made it twice now and the rave reviews keep coming. Its my go-to Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings meal. My husband loves the dumplings – and I bake another batch of biscuits to go with this. Making it again today and substituting boneless skinless thighs for the chicken breasts it should taste equally good!

  49. For future reference – you defrost refrigerators, but you THAW frozen food. Defrosting implies frost, the enemy of food in a freezer.

    • Dictionary definition. See #3:
      1. free (the interior of a refrigerator) of accumulated ice, usually by turning it off for a period.
      2. (of a refrigerator) become free of accumulated ice in this way.
      “she opened the door to let the fridge defrost”
      3. thaw (frozen food) before cooking it.
      “defrost the turkey slowly”

  50. I made chicken and dumplings for the very first time and could not be more pleased with how it turned out thanks to this recipe!! Hubby loved it, it was very easy, and my house is still standing lol!  Thank you so much Holly for sharing this recipe!

  51. This was so easy to make and oh so delicious.

  52. Excited to make

  53. This was a good recipe! But next time I will leave out the onions. I also used frozen dumplings and it turned out good! Makes a lot for 2 ppl. 

  54. I made this, but I changed it up. I put a 16oz frozen package of thawed onion, green and red peppers in the bottom of the crock pot, I’m not a fan of peas and carrots. layered 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (halved) used 2 cans of cream of chicken, and 2 cans of cream of celery. add the spices and poured 4 cups of chicken broth on top. not the low sodium stuff. 1:20mins before the 5 hour mark I took the chicken out and shredded it and put it back in. I used something called sheet dough. flattened it out and cut it into squares, then added it to the pot. basically I doubled the recipe. It turned out fantastic! If I do it over I will use biscuit dough because the sheet dough has broken up into very small pieces in the leftoveres. (still good though). Loved it! my house smelled amazing, and it tasted wonderful! Very easy to make.

  55. I am looking forward to trying this out tomorrow. Sounds delicious and easy enough… Especially for a non-cooking person like me. Now I read through the comments and I don’t understand where the confusion about cooking time is…. Total cooking time comes out to 5 hours on high; 4 hours with the chicken and soups and seasonings and then you add the veggies and biscuits at the last hour. Simple enough, ya? Thanks for the recipe!!

  56. Hello, I’ve been cooking the biscuits for over an hour and it doesn’t seem to be cooking at all

  57. What if I baked the biscuits first? Then dropped them in?

  58. Have you ever tried adding a bay leaf? I usually add a bay leaf to my from scratch recipe. This is my first time doing chicken and dumplings this way. Any thoughts on adding the bay leaf, or does the poultry seasoning replace it? If you were going to add a bay leaf when would you throw it in, the beginning….with the veggies or half way through? In my from scratch recipe you throw it in at the beginning and take it out later…. everything’s in and it’s cooking we will see how it turns out. I have a very old fashioned picky family. While they love the family recipe passed down over 150 years it’s a pain. I’m going to see if they will accept this, worried it’s not going to taste right without the bay leaf…

    • I haven’t tried it with bay leaf but I do think it would add great flavor. I would add it at the beginning and then remove it when you are going to shred the chicken.

  59. When do you add the broth? I read the directions a few times but it’s very possible I missed it. Mom brain :-)

  60. In the crockpot now! Can you add canned peas if you don’t have frozen veggies?

  61. Excited to see how this turns out! It’s in the slow cooker. 
    I gotta ask: has anyone tried this on low? And for how long? My 8 hr days don’t allow for 5-hr high slow cooks. 

  62. This was delicious! I’ll be making this a lot, especially in the colder months when I crave comfort food like this! I didn’t have poultry seasoning so I used 1/2 tsp each of dried thyme and ground sage. It turned out great. Lots of rich, savory notes. I cooked mine on low for about 8 hours, then added the biscuits and turned up to high for about 60-90 minutes. Turned out perfect. This was very easy to make. 

  63. I mis-read recipe and shredded chicken at 4 hours….will that mess my chicken up?

  64. My entire family LOVED this recipe.  Great winter home cooking comfort!

  65. Bought a store made rotisserie chicken . Cheap can of biscuits and the soups and a can of vegall made this recipe in about 3 hours in crock then add the biscuits cut in strips and it’s perfect ..I cut back on the onion a lot because I like to have a piece of raw onion with mine ..will definitely make again super easy

  66. Excellent recipe. This is my first crock pot recipe ever and it turned out amazing. I followed the instructions precisely and the results were phenomenal. Thank you very much!

  67. Made this for dinner this evening! Everyone loved it! Changed the recipe a little, I’m allergic to onions but can have dehydrated onions. So I replaced the Lg Onion with 1 pack of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, stirring it in with the soup mixture. It was delicious!!! Will definitely make again? 

  68. This recipe was very disappointing. I followed the recipe exactly &  I was expecting it to be creamy & it was VERY liquidy like chicken noodle soup. Wont make this recipe again. 

  69. I just made this tonight and it was awesome!!! The husband and the mother-in-law loved it as well! I was surprised how easy it was to make, and the chicken just fell apart when I took it out to shred it! So damn good!! I can’t wait to make it again!

  70. I make this for my family when they’re sick. I don’t use the peas and carrots, and it’s preferred that way. Makes them feel better. ❤❤❤❤

  71. Perfect recipe for a very cold snow day when the kids were home, the puppy was bored, and I had a packed day of at-home conference calls to replace cancelled meetings. I followed the recipe perfectly and it came out perfectly. My husband and kids loved it. I did make it in a 4 QT cooker but I can see where 6 QTs would be an advantage. My cooker was filled to the brim. My 11-year-old affirmed that it was indeed “comfort food.”

  72. I’m making this recipe now but I only have original biscuits will it be ok? 

  73. Thanks for the recipe! I am cooking it now. Should i stir the onion, chicken, soups & broth when i place them in the crock pot first? Or just layer and leave them to cook as is?

  74. its 14 degrees out so perfect day for this! my question is this- i normally make the biscuick drop dumplings,,10 min covered 10 uncovered into the broth…how do i adjust this? OR can I just use some of the broth and make dumplings on stove last few minutes, add them into crock for 10 minutes to abosrb flavors? has anytone tried it this way?? i have the canned which i wanted to use for my husband. he loves those biscuits, i dont care for them at all. i think i just answered my own question.. use canned, make small batch on stove for drop dumplings for me…right?

  75. I have never made Chicken and Dumplings before in my life,have always wanted to make them and I love cooking in my Crock Pot!!!! I can’t wait to make this!!!! It is just myself now,so I will be freezing alot of it for meals as the weather here is horrible,temperatures in the negative!!!! Can’t wait to make this,Yummmmmmmmy!!!!

  76. Hi holly. Can I add noodles to this recipe? Would you suggest adding a cup or two of uncooked noodles when I add the veggies? Wondering if you know how that would work out, or how you would do it. Thanks!

  77. I thought the idea for this recipe was great but I felt it needed more seasoning. I’ll make it again but probably with regular broth and I might salt the chicken before hand. Otherwise we loved it!

  78. I loved this recipe~~made it today~~ It was -20 degrees so needed something cooking all day and making the house smell wonderful~~Awesome will pass it on to my friends~~

  79. Tasty with the addition of more salt. I didn’t use cream of celery soup I had to go with the cream of mushroom, but I did add more mushrooms and mixed vegetables. Very good.

  80. Wonderful recipe with great taste and so easy to do. Definitely a keeper.

  81. This is now a regular at our house.  My entire family requests this whenever possible. We love it and it is easy to make.

  82. Very good. Third time making it now. It’s one of the families new favorites.

  83. Can you freeze half of this?

  84. Very yummy! Would make it again. Hubby liked it too.

  85. Looks really good.Can I use 4qt pot?

    • The chicken portion would be just fine in a 4QT slow cooker, my only concern is that the dumplings puff up and I’m not sure if you’ll have enough room for them. If you do try it, please let us know how it goes.

  86. Made it tonight by following the recipe. Perfection. What’s with all the folks who can’t read?

  87. Awesome and easy!!

  88. I have made this several times. My family loves it! Especially good to make during Christmas season with all the shopping, wrapping, baking, etc. A good hot meal is ready when you need it!

  89. Does the chicken go in cooked or uncooked?? 

  90. I made the recipe tonight. It was great I made a few changes used thighs instead of breast, juicer and holds the flavor. I also used 2 cans cream of chicken instead of one, sea salted and peppered the top of the biscuits before adding them. Have a great picture but not sure how to add it! Thanks for this recipe will look for more from you. Having this with a glass of white wine too, it’ pairs perfect!! 

  91. Making this now.  I didn’t use cream of celery, since vegetables I’m using has celery in it.  Cooked on high for about 3 hours, shredded chicken, cooked another hour, stirred in thawed frozen vegetables and topped with 8 canned grands biscuits cut into 8ths.  Will see if 1 hour is enough time for the biscuits to cook.  Smells good!

  92. I’m super impressed with how helpful and kind you are to those posting! 

  93. This was delicious and easy. I’m making. It for the third time. This time for my sister who is recovering from surgery.

  94. Love this recipe!  I use Santa Maria seasoning, and put in extra veggies to include green beens.  I don’t remove the chicken to shred;easy to do in the crockpot.  Can even do after the fourth hour.  Great leftovers too.  Have also done with just 2 breasts and still yummy.

  95. I’ve made this before and loved it! So delicious and easy. Question: I don’t have any chicken broth on hand at the moment but I do have beef broth. Do you think it would make for an ok substitute? 

  96. Just made this tonight! Doubled the cream of chicken & cream of celery, also only used 3 chicken breasts! I made my dumplings using Bisquick. Came out great! We got 8 servings too! Thanks for the recipe! 

  97. Made this for my boyfriend, we loved it.  Can’t wait to make it again 

  98. Hello! I am new to cooking so please excuse my question! But on the “To Serve” part it says to remove the chicken breasts, but isn’t the chicken breasts in the very bottom of the crock pot with the veggies and biscuits on top? How do you remove the chicken breasts without removing everything else? Bought all the ingredients and very excited to try this recipe :)

    • Yes, I just use tongs to remove the chicken from the broth and shred it up and stir it back in. There is a video above the recipe that shows how it is prepared.

  99. This is a really good comfort food especially when it’s cold and messy outside. The only thing I did different was to use premade dumplings that are in the frozen food section in the grocery store. They are more like home made and are really yummy

  100. Made the crockpot chicken and dumplings for dinner tonight. Both my husband and I had second helpings. I said is it a keeper or not, he definitely gave it a thumbs up. So easy to make. Always looking for chicken recipes different that oven cooked. 

  101. I have a family of 5 will this be enough and to have left overs or should i double it?

    • It would depend on your family (teenagers vs. toddlers etc). You can always serve it with a side salad, bread and veggies to make it go a little bit further as well. :)

  102. This recipe was so delicious we can’t wait to eat the leftovers! It was very easy and had a nice consistency, not soupy at all!
    Both my husband and I loved it!
    Thanks for an inexpensive and easy way to eat chicken!

  103. My Family Loved It!!!!!!

  104. This was YUM-EEEEE !!!!!! Will definitely be making this again !! 

  105.  Just to be clear you don’t mix in the chicken broth you pour that directly over the top and layer it on? 

  106. Have this in the crock pot now…smells delish! The only thing I’m trying different is using canned peas and carrots. Hope this turns out ok! Has anyone tried it?

  107. What is the serving size?

  108. I just made this for my husband and myself… AMAZING! Such comfort food for a rainy Northwest day such as today! And I LOVE that it is a low-cost meal. We both loved it.

    2 things I would personally do different if making this again: I would add diced potatoes in the beginning (I am a potato addict)… Also, I would bake the biscuits in the oven (not in the crockpot at all) and then place a cooked biscuit atop each bowl at serving time.

  109. I started making this today to find that my Crock-Pot was not working, so I did it on the stove top. Cooked onion in a bit of butter, then added chicken and cooked it for about 35 min. Pulled it out and added the soup, vegetables, seasonings and broth. After it started to boil I added chicken then the dumplings that I rolled out using a bit of flour on the board. This thickened the soup, so I added more broth. It was delicious!! My husband had seconds and thirds.
    I had no trouble understanding the recipe, but couldn’t follow the Crock-Pot method. Thanks for the SUPER GOOD recipe.

  110. Turin out great tips about biscuits rolled thin was very helpful

  111. Im wondering exactly when i should be adding the vegetables? At the beginning as the recipe states or in the last hour as i keep seeing in the comments?

  112. Kudos to you, what an amazing meal! Loved it!

  113. My neighbor made this for my husband while I was sick. He loved it, once I felt better she shared the recipe source. I have made it three times now, we both love it. Wonderful comfort food

  114. I make this with fresh carrots and green beans since my hubby doesn’t like peas I put that in there along while the chicken is cooking so yummy 

  115. I made this and changed it up a bit because of some likes and health reasons. I used skinless boneless chicken thighs, my husband likes more than chicken breasts and I used butter nut squash which I put on top of the onions instead of carrots. It was delicious, next time I will probably cut the poultry seasoning down 3/4 or one half rather than a whole. Again, my husband and his likes.. I loved it.

  116. I added potatoes, carrots, celery & broccolis on top of the chicken. It was delicious. Everything was cooked very well.

  117. Absolutely delicious! I did have to substitute since I didn’t have some ingredients. I used chicken thighs, baby carrots cut into smaller chunks and some soaked dried lady peas. Seasonings consisted of salt, pepper and garlic. I made my own dumplings as well. I also prefer cream of mushroom soup to any others.

    Overall it’s delicious and something I would make for the other chicken-eaters in the family. The husband can’t eat it cause chicken don’t agree with him but the rest of the family likes it, so it’s likely going to be made again around Thanksgiving. Not sure if I rated right, so I’m putting here that I gave it five stars.

  118. I made this recipe for dinner yesterday and it was amazing! 
    The only things I did differently were: 
    -Used regular chicken broth
    -I didn’t have poultry seasoning so I used cream of chicken with herbs
    -used 2 large chicken breasts instead of 4
    I wouldn’t have done anything differently. My boyfriend insisted that he doesn’t like chicken and dumplings until I fed him this and now he can’t get enough. He said 10/10!

  119. This was great! I made it just as the recipe states (I’m perplexed by some of the comments…a lot of the questions asked are clearly answered if one reads through the entire recipe before attempting to make). I was leery that some flavor would be lost with no dairy products and it was not. I like that this is something I can keep everything on hand for in my pantry and freezer since I rarely have dairy products like cream, 1/2 & 1/2 or milk on hand.

    My crockpot cooked this quite a bit faster than the time stated in the recipe (which may be due to using thin cut chicken breasts), so I’d suggest anyone making it for the first time, to pay attention to time. I’d make this again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much for a comfort food recipe that isn’t a complete calorie bomb!

  120. This was such an easy recipe, my husband and I absolutely loved it. I will be making this again. Thank you

  121. Just made this and mine is very watery. Not thick at all. Followed instructions exactly. Hmmm

  122. I followed the recipe to a T and it came out perfect. It is so yummy and I would have to say that it is a keeper. The chicken was moist and tender and the dumplings tasted great. I’d say it feeds about six. It definitely earned its’ five stars and I would highly recommend it.

  123. I’m trying to make this and I can’t get the recipe to load

    • We apologize for any inconvenience! There was a glitch on the site which has now been fixed. Please let us know if you have any further trouble.

  124. I was just at the store an hour ago with this recipe on my phone to buy the ingredients to make this for dinner. Now I’m home and the recipe is gone from the website, I’ve tried viewing it from my computer and my phone but it’s not their. The comments are there but the post and recipe are gone

    • We apologize for any inconvenience! There was a glitch on the site which has now been fixed. Please let us know if you have any further trouble.

  125. The recipe does not come up for me. Could you email it to me? I would love to make it for my family :)

    • Hi Loretta,
      We apologize for any inconvenience! There was a glitch on the site which has now been fixed. Please let us know if you have any further trouble.

  126. Very good, I love it

  127. Is this a thick gravy or runny? I’m 3 hours in and it’s very runny/liquidy. 

  128. so good, and easy..will make again

  129. I want a half recipe for this. I know how to half everything but is the cooking time the same?

  130. Im a man and i love to cook….this recipe is great…its cooking now and the only difference was i used fresh carrot and added them at the beginning…ive done this befor and it was great….thanx

  131. Made this yesterday. So easy and delicious! I’m a single lady so I’m going to try freezing some individual servings to have later on. Thank you!

  132. Making it… again! Will recommend it on my FB to friends, so easy and good!

  133. This was the best chicken and dumplings I’ve ever had. This was the first time I made it myself and will be making it again. It was perfect for my family. 

  134. If making this in the oven because we do not have a big enough crock pot do you recommend a specific temp?

  135. Really easy to make, and tastes fantastic. This has quickly become a staple in our house. My husband loves it so much the leftovers often go to work with him the next day.

  136. Instead of dealing with the biscuits per the recipe pick up some gnocchi at your local Dollar Tree. They are an excellent substitution for the biscuits and cook up in the same 1 hour time frame. Or you can take Flour Tortilla’s, cut them in half then into strips and add them 1 hour before serving. Just delpends on what you prefer. -Enjoy

  137. Made this tonight – super easy and delicious! We are expecting our first baby in a month and this will be on the list of easy meals to throw together!

  138. Love Love Love! I will be sharing this on my website soon! Just a Fabulous page with incredible content!

  139. I made this a few nights ago and it was awesome! I was planning on making it again tonight, but wanted to add a few more dumplings, as my husband LOVES them! Would I just add some extra chicken broth if I wanted to do that?

  140. My kids love this. The only thing I do different is I use the petite peas instead of frozen.

  141. WOW reading these comments you wonder how they tie their shoes in the morning smh people try reading some other comments BEFORE asking the same questions 100s of times smh

  142. Wonderful recipe. My only problem….and it was MY problem, not the recipe’s problem….was that as I cut the biscuits, I just piled them up, and ended up with a huge GLOB of biscuit dough, that wasn’t really cut much at all. So, I just kind of tore it up and dumped it in – worked out just fine :) Would suggest laying them strips out separately (and maybe not buying cheap biscuits – but that’s all my small town store had :)

  143. I made this recipe for my family of 6, doubled it of course and had very little left . They loved it !! 

  144. I accidentally added my frozen veggies to the initial 4 hour cooking is that ok

  145. I accidentally added my frozen veggies with the cream of chicken and celery…is that ok

  146. Unlike everyone else not reading about the cooking time and adding the veggies at the 4 hour mark I made a big boo-boo and  didn’t read the whole line where it said to combine the soups and seasonings and then spread over the chicken instead I combined the soups and the broth all at once in a bowl and mixed it all together,  will that make a difference in the way it turns out?  I swear the older I get the more my brain skips things I’m reading. Argggg I will let you know how it turns out….

  147. Could I freeze this and just reheat

    • 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. :)

  148. Holly, you’re awesome! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

  149. Awesome My Husband loved it . Will use recipe again .I used 3 large chicken breast instead of 4 . Thank you so much for sharing awesome recipe .

  150. Awesome Made it yesterday. Will make it again Thank you for this great Recipe

  151. I give this recipe at 10

  152. Made this chicken and dumplings recipe Saturday morning, turned out delicious will make this again.

  153. Looks delicious and easy.

  154. Video show 4 cans soup added?


  156. I have a smaller crockpot (4.5 qts) and am only cooking for two people right now. Would halving the recipe drastically change the cooking time? This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it out this semester!

  157. Would doubling this recipe pose any sort of problems? 

  158. Wow! This is truly amazing. I made it exactly per the recipe. Easy, tasty. Excellent chicken and dumplings. Will be making this over and over. Don’t change a thing.

  159. I have made it two times and it’s delicious you can also make a chicken pot pie with this recipe minus the chicken broth. and add two deep dish pie crust cook the chicken breast in the stovetop mix all the other ingredients in a bowl shred chicken after you cook it put it all together and then add it to one pie crust and cover it with the other one and bake about 45 minutes or until pie crust is brown and the veggies are hot 

  160. Excellent recipe. Very tasty. However, for time, I cooked mine on the stovetop in about an hour.

  161. Making this now smells delicious last hour to go can’t wait …..Thank You

  162. Where does the low sodium chicken broth come in? I’m halfway into the recipie and haven’t found out what to do with it

  163. I made it was great :) being a dumpling lover. I would say, at little more dumpling little less chicken! 

  164. This is now a fav…tried many Chicken and Dumplings recipe and this is the only one that is awesome. Thank you for sharing.

  165. 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!! :)

  166. Excellent! I followed the recipe and it came out excellent!

  167. EXCELLENT!!! the best I’ve ever had.

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

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

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


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

  173. Can’t wait to try today!

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

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

  176. 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.

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

  178. 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.

  179. 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.

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

  181. 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!

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

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

  184. 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!

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

  186. 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.

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

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

  189. 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…


  191. Made this tonight and it turned out wonderful!

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

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

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

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

  196. Do you have to use low sodium broth?

  197. 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).

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

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

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

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

  202. 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?

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

  204. 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!!!

  205. 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

  206. 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.

  207. 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.

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

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

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

  211. 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?

  212. 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!

  213. 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.

  214. Can I make this in my instant pot?

  215. 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.

  216. 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?

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

  218. can sub chicken breast for boneless chicken thighs?

  219. 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?

  220. 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.

  221. 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!

  222. 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.

  223. 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.

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

  225. 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.

  226. 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.

  227. 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.

  228. 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?

  229. 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.

  230. Can this be frozen for multiple meals?

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

  232. 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.

  233. 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.

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

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

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

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

  238. 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.

  239. 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.

  240. 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.

  241. 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.

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

  243. 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?

  244. Trying the chicken and dumplings tonight.

  245. 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

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

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

  248. 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.

  249. 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?

  250. 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).

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

  252. 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!

  253. 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.

  254. 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?

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

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

  257. 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

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

  259. 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)

  260. 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?

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

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

  263. 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!

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

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

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

  267. 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!


    • 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.

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

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

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

  271. 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

  272. Love these recipes, easy quick and good.

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

  274. 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.

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

  276. 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.

  277. 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!

  278. 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.

  279. Habe you done this on low setting?

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

  281. 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!!!

  282. 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.

  283. Chick casserole

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

  285. 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!

  286. Looks so good

  287. 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.

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

  289. 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.

  290. 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

  291. 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. :)

  292. 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.

  293. 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!

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

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

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

  297. 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.

  298. Made This Tonight. It was excellent!

  299. 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.


    • 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.

    • I’ve found cooking chicken breasts that long, even on low, will result in them being very dry.

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

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

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

  303. 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.

  304. 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.

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

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

  307. 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!

  308. 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.

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

  310. 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. :)

  311. 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. :)

  312. 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?


  313. 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.

  314. 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?

  315. 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.

  316. 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.

  317. 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!

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

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

  320. every thing looks good I will try

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

  322. 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!

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

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

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

  326. Loved this recipe!!!!

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

  328. 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!

  329. 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?

  330. 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.

  331. 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!

  332. 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.

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

  334. 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

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

  336. 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.

  337. 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.

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

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

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

  341. 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!

  342. 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

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

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

  345. 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.

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

  347. 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,


  348. 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).

  349. 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.

  350. 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!

  351. 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.

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

  353. 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!

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

  355. 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…

  356. 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 !!

  357. 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?

  358. 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.

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

  360. Love your recipes

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

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

  363. 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

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

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

  366. 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)??

  367. 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?

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

  369. 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??

  370. 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

  371. 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.

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

  373. 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… :)

  374. 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!

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

  376. 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!

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

  378. 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.

  379. 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!!!

  380. Great Recipe Thanks

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

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

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

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

  385. 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!

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

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

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

  389. 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).

  390. 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

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

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

  393. 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?

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

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

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

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

  398. 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.

  399. 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.

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

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

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

  403. 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 :)

  404. 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!

  405. 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?

  406. 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.

  407. 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!

  408. 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?

  409. 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!

  410. Thank you for sharing!

  411. 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!

  412. 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!

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

  414. 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.

  415. 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! :)

  416. 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!

  417. 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?

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

  419. 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.

  420. 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?

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

  422. 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?

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

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

  425. 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!!

  426. 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?

  427. 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
