A Chicken & Dumpling Recipe So Easy…

How easy it?

So easy even your 5-year-old could do it. For the busiest of bees or if you want to introduce cooking to your young ‘en or anyone with a fear of cooking, this is the recipe. It’s foolproof, easier than pie and mmm, mmm good!


You just need a crockpot and the following ingredients:

1.5 lbs boneless/skinless chicken breast (is there any other kind?)
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup (no water, just the regular condensed soup)
1 can chicken broth
2 cups frozen carrots/peas*
1 onion diced
2 tablespoons of butter
1 can of Pillsbury biscuits

Place the chicken, butter, soup, broth and onion in a slow cooker. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on Low. Then, about 90 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. I dunk them and then about 45 minutes into cooking the dough, I dunk and stir them again. So, total cook time about 6.5 to 7.5 hours. If you don’t want to wait that long then, I’d cook it for about 3.5 hours on high then another hour or so for the dough.

Serve in a bowl on a cold winter’s day and let this stick-to-your-ribs meal warm you from the inside out!

*Optional, but definitely don’t bother with celery. I didn’t think it added to the flavor or texture and only watered down the meal.
