Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

I have never made chicken and dumpling before, why? Because the thought of gooey, wet biscuits did not appeal to me. We never even at it growing up. Then one day I decided I needed to make it, Mr. would love it! So I read up on a few recipes and came up with this one. It was hit!! Even the kids were digging in the pot for more dumplings! Guess I'll be making this more often! I did cheat and use store bought biscuit dough, but will have to make my own next time.


Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
adapted from allrecipes

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast, diced

2 tablespoons butter
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 onion, finely diced
1 Cup frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 Cup diced celery and leaves
salt
pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces (or homemade)
flour for dusting


-Place the chicken, butter, soup, onion, veggies, celery, salt and pepper to taste, thyme in a slow cooker, stir to combine and fill with enough water to cover.

-Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours* on High.
-3 hours* before end of cook time, Dust cut biscuits in flour and place in the slow cooker, dunk them in the broth every now and again, being careful not to let too much heat sneak out (keep lid half on). Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.


I forgot I wanted to add some other pics too...

Here's a peek at them cooking away:

Mr. got me a new crock pot for my birthday, it's one from Costco. It's a little bit smaller (6qt) than my other one (which the cord had a cut in it!??), but I love it. It has handles on the sides so you can move the thing around, the lid has a rubber seal and vent holes and it seems to cook just right, where my old one seemed to get too hot, even on low. I'm trying to find new recipe, so I can start using it more, happy to say I have made about 5 recipes since my Birthday in it.

I'm the same way! I haven't made chicken and dumplings because soggy dough kind of freaks me out a little bit (for the same reason, you will never see me making breakfast casseroles with bread in them)

Hi Anonymous,
I do believe they were the regular buttermilk biscuits. =)
