INGREDIENTS FOR CROCKPOT CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS
Onion, diced - Use whatever type of onion you'd like here.
Chicken breasts - boneless skinless chicken breasts. You can also use other cuts of chicken, and leftover chicken too.
Garlic powder - Don't confuse with garlic salt.
Cream of chicken soup - You can use low sodium soup here as well.
Chicken broth - Low sodium chicken stock is a great option, too.
Instant (canned) biscuit dough - I use grands biscuits
Frozen peas and carrots - If you have other frozen veggies, you can add them in, too.
HOW TO MAKE THIS CHICKEN & DUMPLING RECIPE
- Add onion, chicken breasts, salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasonings, chicken broth, and cream of chicken soup to the crockpot.
- Cook chicken mixture on HIGH for 4 hours. Once cooked, remove the lid carefully.

- Add frozen peas and carrots and stir. Chop biscuits up and layer across the top of the chicken. Cook on HIGH for another 2 hours. Serve warm and enjoy!
Pro Tips and Timesaver Shortcuts
- If you overcook during the second half, the biscuits can begin to brown or burn against the side
of the crockpot.
- All crockpots/slower cookers do not heat the same. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the pot. If at the 4-hour mark you need to add more liquid, do so, to avoid burning later.
- You can also make this with rotisserie chicken and save time. It's one of my favorite slow cooker recipes to use it in.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container.
Can you freeze crockpot chicken and dumplings?
You can. Just make certain that you add your leftovers to a freezer-safe container or bag and it should be fine. There is a chance that the texture will be altered a bit once you unthaw to enjoy but it shouldn't affect the flavor or taste at all.
What are good side dish options for crockpot dumplings with chicken?
Since this is a hearty meal, a nice side salad or even a small bowl of cottage cheese are great options or additions for dinner. The lighter, the better!
