My mom made the most delicious chicken and dumplings when I was growing up. To this day, it’s one of my favorite comfort foods. But, until last week, I’d never made it myself. It just seemed a bit too “involved” for me. But, when I found this recipe for easy slow-cooked chicken and dumplings, I had to try it. And, it was really quite delicious. And, incredibly simple! You should try it yourself – perfect for a cold, winter night.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (I put them in frozen)
2 tbsp. butter
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 onion finely chopped
1 package of refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
Place the chicken, butter, soup and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with just enough chicken stock (or water) to cover.
Cover and cook for 5-6 hours on high (or 8-9 hours on low). About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker on high. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.
Almost as good as the recipe my mom makes. The dumplings are even better than I expected from refrigerated dough. It’s always better when someone else makes it for you. =)
