Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Growing up in the South, one of my favorite dishes ever is chicken and dumplings. If I go to a restaurant and there’s chicken and dumplings on the menu, I automatically know what I’m ordering. There’s so many different ways you can make it and after years of trying many different combinations, I’ve found the best one that I always make extra of just so that I know there will be leftovers for later. I usually eat pretty small portions, but this is one of the few meals that I can eat multiple bowls of in one night. It’s that good!
The ingredients you’ll need are:

~1 onion, diced
~1 can cream of chicken soup (10.5 oz)
~1 can cream of celery soup (10.5 oz)
~salt and pepper
~4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
~2 cups chicken broth
~2 cups frozen peas and carrots
~1 can of biscuits (7.5 oz 10 count, not Grands)
This is a Crock Pot meal, so you know it’s gonna be super easy! Start by emptying out the cans of soup and stir it together with the salt and pepper. There’s no need to add any water to the soup. You could do this in a separate bowl, but I like to minimize the amount of dishes that need to be done so I just do it all in the slow cooker.

Once the soups are all combined together, add in the chicken broth and onion and mix those together. Then you can add in the chicken and cook it on low with the lid on for about two and a half hours. Keep in mind that all slow cookers can vary on time. You’ll know it’s done when the chicken is soft enough to shred.

Take each piece of chicken out, cut it into small pieces and put it back in the Crock Pot. Then tear the biscuits into tiny chunks and add those to the Crock Pot also, along with the peas and carrots. The peas and carrots can be a little defrosted if you would like, but that’s not what I typically do and it’s perfectly fine either way. Put the lid back on and turn the heat up to high for another 40 minutes to an hour. When the biscuits are in, I like to stir it occasionally to prevent them from getting a little crisp.

This is great served immediately and also delicious as leftovers too. I could eat chicken and dumplings every day and never get tired of it. It’s great for something that requires very minimal effort and you don’t even have to worry about sides or veggies because everything’s all included! ;)
