Recipe: Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

I love chicken and dumplings. It’s probably my favorite comfort food ever. I have my mom’s standard recipe and while it’s really good, I wanted something even more flavorful, but super simple. After searching high and low on Pinterest and recipe websites, and still not finding what I was looking for (using LOTS of veggies), I decided to make up my own recipe. I was so pleased with the results, I thought I’d share!


  • 10 frozen chicken breast tenderloins {or 3-4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts}
  • 12 baby carrots, chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 large potatoes {I used Russet, but any kind will do}, peeled and chopped
  • 2/3 cup of frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 1 can of chicken broth
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup {use this recipe to learn how to make your own healthier version}
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 small packages of Grands Jr. biscuits (has 10 small biscuits)


Place all ingredients except for biscuits into the crock pot. Cook for 6-8 hours on low. 30 minutes before serving, rip up raw biscuit dough and place them on top of the soupy mixture. Wait 30 minutes for dough to cook, then dig in!

Perfect for filling bellies on a cold evening and tastes even better the second day :D

  1. […] Her recipe is loaded with veggies, and includes extra optional steps for a healthier sub to the called-for cream of chicken soup. […]

  2. […] veggies and meat in the dish so hopefully it would be even easier for him and her. I found this at Mrs. Weber’s Neighborhood and altered it slightly so there would be less chopping for […]
