I can’t say enough how much I love Pinterest.  It is a great resource for everything like, crafts, home decor, photography and RECIPES!  My recipe board is pretty big, and when I am feeling like I need a new recipe I will check what recipes I have pinned.

 This week I tried this Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings recipe from the Lady With The Red Rocker.

Oh My Yumminess this recipe is amazing, so I had to share it with all of you!
Stephanie (Lady With The Red Rocker) also found this recipe on Pinterest, and came from Polish the Stars.  But Stephanie includes a Cheater Version of the recipe so if you don’t have all day to make it you can follow those instructions.
Slow-Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
(adapted from Lady With The Red Rocker)


1 ½ lb of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 4 large or 6 small)
4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
3 cans (10.5oz) Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1 box (32oz) Chicken Broth
1 medium White Onion, diced
2 dashes of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
10 Large Flaky Refrigerator Biscuits


Place chicken in a crock pot and top with butter.  Add the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth and diced onions.  Cook on High for 4-6 hours or Low for 6-8 hours.
*For the cheater version: I combined the chicken, soup, broth, and onions in a pot and brought everything to a boil on high on the stove-top. Reduced the temp to low and simmered for 1 hour. Continue with the rest of the recipe*
Cut each uncooked biscuit into 8 small pieces and stir into the chicken mixture.  Continue to cook on High for 30 minutes.  (*If doing cheater version, check dumplings after about 15 min*) Remove chicken from slow-cooker and shred with a fork.  Return to slow-cooker and stir everything together. Serve hot. (This is also good the next day.)
Makes about 6-8 servings.
This recipe really is quite amazing!  If you try it out I would love to hear your thoughts!

    This looks delicious. I haven’t made chicken & dumplings in forever and I have been trying out new recipes in my crock pot almost daily lately so this will definitely be added to the lineup. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday. Can’t wait to see what you share next week. Have a great weekend.

    Loooove this recipe!! I’ve made it twice and making it tonight! I always add in some frozen peas and carrots along with the onion!

    when you double this recipe, do you add 6 cans of cream of chicken soup? It doesn’t get to salty by doing this?

    • Katie says

      I have never doubled it, so I am not exactly sure. As long as you double all of the ingrediants it shouldn’t taste any different than the original.

    • Katie says

      You can check them after the 30 minutes, but I didn’t have a problem with them still being doughie after that time.
