Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

Why is it that when the weather changes, the weather gets cooler and the furnace turns out that I start craving comfort food?  I’ve pulled out the flannel jammies and started drinking pumpkin steamers so it must be Fall and time for comfort food.

If there is one food that screams COMFORT FOOD to me it is Chicken & Dumplings.

We love it  at our house and I first shared a recipe for Chicken & Dumplings with you here.

Today’s version is a little bit different and easier!  It is made in a crock pot or a slow cooker.  Just get it going first thing in the morning and you’ve got a delicious dinner waiting for you that night.

Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

It cooks on low for 6  hours and I started with frozen chicken.  Just popped it in the slow cooker with some seasoning and butter.  I then covered it with a combo of cream of chicken, cream of celery and chicken broth and let it cook away all day.

You want to cook it until your chicken is nice and tender but not over cooked.  Use a couple of forks and shred the chicken right in the pot.  I then added in the frozen vegetables and topped it with the dumplings.  The dumplings are a combination of Bisquick milk and sour cream.  Keep them small so they cook all the way through.  I dropped the dough by the Tablespoon on top of the chicken mixture.  Then cover and allow to cook for another hour to an hour and a half.

Once the biscuits are cooked through it is ready to enjoy!  Pure Comfort Food!!

I garnished mine with a little bit of chopped chives to pretty it up a bit.

    Your Crook Pot Chicken and Dumplings looks so yummy. I may just have to give it a try. I am thinking that you could still use the frozen store bought dumplings. I know homemade is so much better but I do love the thin type that are more like pastry. Thank you for making me think about this. Maybe I can make this meal easier for our family now. Hugs, Beverly

    How many dumplings does this make? I’m wondering if I need to double the recipe for the dumplings.
