Canned soup and refrigerator biscuits make prep easy for crockpot chicken and dumplings.

Ingredients

  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 21 oz cream of chicken soup
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth plus extra for thinning
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp parsley
  • 6 refrigerator biscuits, from can

Instructions

  • Spray a large slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken in bottom of crock pot.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together butter, soup, broth, onions, and parsley. Pour over chicken.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4-6 hours.
  • After cooking time has elapsed, turn off slow cooker and break chicken into pieces using a fork. On a cutting board, using a sharp knife, cut each biscuit into 9 pieces. Stir biscuit pieces into hot chicken mixture.
  • Turn crock pot back on to high and continue cooking for 30 minutes. If your mixture is too thick when you add the biscuits, add about 1/2 to 1 cup of hot chicken broth or water to thin the mixture. Serve hot.
