Chicken and Dressing

Chicken and Dressing – A delicious recipe for the slow cooker

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 8 hrs
Temp Low

This is such a great recipe for the cool months, and it is also nice that it is a hearty enough soup to “stand alone”. We chose to serve ours with some steamed broccoli, and it added a punch of color and flavor to the meal! We also chose to change things up a bit and add in some veggies to the mix, and it turned out very yummy! This meal makes us want to stay indoors and relax with our families… board game anyone???

Used 6-quart slow cooker

Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 Can Cream of Celery Soup
  • 3 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 Onion, finely diced
  • 1 Cup Celery, diced
  • 1 Cup Carrots, diced
  • 2 Chicken bouillon cube
  • 10 Ounces Can of Biscuits, but you can make your own

Directions

  1. Step One

    EXCLUDING THE BISCUITS put all ingredients in, then cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.

  2. Step Two

    About an hour (give or take) before serving, remove chicken and pull into pieces and return to the soup mixture.

  3. Step Three

    Place the torn biscuit dough in and cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

    Wow. Incredible ! This was perfect exactly as the recipe is. The only change I made was to roll the cut up dough into flour before putting in the crock pot. Definitely a keeper!!

    This was FANTASTIC! I have an obscenely picky eater in my house and he LOVED it. I noticed toward the end that the sauce was a little thin so I added 1/2 Tbsp. of cornstarch in about 1/4 cup of chicken stock at the same time I dropped the dumplings in. Let it go for another hour and it was PERFECT. My partner ate 2 bowls full and took it to work for lunch the next day. He shared it with one of his friends at work and she loved it so much she asked if he would bring her a small bowl with the recipe. This is definitely a home run recipe!

    This is an outstanding recipe! I made it for freezing as well and it works perfectly. Just keep the biscuits on hand in the fridge. I followed another hint and rolled the biscuits in flour before putting them in the broth. I also chopped up the celery leaves in the center of the celery and added that (a hint from another blogger). Otherwise I made it just as listed.

    My oldest daughter is not a cook. She is highly intelligent though. She ate before I got home from work and asked before she left for her job at the DQ if there was anything other than the biscuits for dinner? Ummm, the soup underneath it. “THERE WAS SOUP UNDERNEATH IT?!” She was full on biscuits. No room for soup. I cooked my biscuits about an hour.

    Sound great! I look forward to making it this fall. Do you have to cook it for 8 hours? Can you cook it on high for a shorter amount of time instead?

    This was great! My fiance and 4 y/o loved it! I did change it up a little.. I didn’t have a can of cream of celery, so I used cream of mushroom. Only used 1 boullion cube, 1 can of broth 14.5 oz (almost 2 cups) and added 1 can of water. I used “I can’t believe its not butter” inplace of real butter. Lastly, I added some garlic. We love garlic in my house.. you couldn’t even tell! Great recipe, full of flavor!! I will be making it again, probably very soon!!

    Good, but two minor adjustments. I didn’t have any bouillion cubes so I sprinkled a little garlic salt in there. I also didn’t add biscuits because my kids and I don’t like “wet” bread. So, we ate it as kind of a soup with biscuits on the side. Good stuff!

    Love love love this recipe! I made it 3-4 times in the past and then didn’t make it again for a while. ( I Dont know how I forgot about a recipe this good and easy) and the other day my husband asked why I haven’t made it in a while!! Too funny, so now I’m off to the grocery store to get the ingredients to have it for tomorrow :) I make it as written, but I double the veggies. It’s crazy how something this easy is so tasty!!!

    Would using the fat free version of the soups alter the recipe?

  16. Debi

    This is so easy my 11 yr old made it this morning as part of her “home economics” home school class! To make it a little easier, I diced the veggies last night and put them in the fridge. This morning, had her put all the soups/broths into a mixing bowl and wisk until blended then poured over the chicken. Since we like our dumplin’s cooked well, we added them 2 hrs before serving and they were perfect, for us. She asked if we could make this again next week! Its delicious, and takes a fraction of the time my Non-crock recipe takes! Thanks girls! So happy i’m here!!

    This recipe was great! I actually took a roasted chicken and removed the skin pulled off the meat and cut in chucks, used frozen carrots and added in soups, broth and bouillon
    cubes and cooked for two hours before adding dumplings. My family loved it.

    Sounds like you need to let your dumplings cook longer. You can also roll them out a little to make them thin.

    I’m new to the site and made this on Tuesday. I’m a true southern girl who knows good chicken and dumplins! All I can say is “Ah-MAZING”! My 4 year old had two helpings and kept saying “Mmmmm…this is so good!” I too omitted the bouillon cubes (because I didn’t have any) and used poulty seasoning instead. Delish! Thanks girls for such an awesome site…I’m addicted!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit! Both of my girls loved it! When I make it again I think I will bake the biscuits then break them up and put them in the bowls as I dish them out. I wasn’t a huge fan of the texture. I may have made them too big, that could be the reason. Otherwise it was really good.

    I’ve done this recipe twice. I changed it a bit to make it easier/tastier. First, I use the concentrated broth that comes as sort of a gel. I get it at Walmart in the area where they have the broth. It is great. I use about 2 cups of water and one large low sodium chicken broth. I don’t use the bouillon. I also start with a rotisserie chicken. Shred it up front. Do everything else as listed until the end. Spread a little flour on your cutting board and then cut the biscuits in really small pieces. Toss them with a little flour before putting them in the crock pot. The flour will keep the biscuits from sticking together and help thicken your broth. Cook on high for about an hour or so.

    Yum! and it tastes great as leftovers!

    I make beef stew in my slow cooker all the time and I use the Bisquick dumplings. I cook the stew on low and then turn it up to high, drop the dumplings and cover it for about 30 – 40 min. Works great and I bet it would work just as well with this recipe

    I am giving this 5 stars even though my dumplings didn’t quite cook all the way through (operator error, I’m sure). Very tasty. I have been buying chicken breasts in bulk and butterflying them, then freezing, because they cook faster and more evenly. The chicken was so tender that shredding was a piece of cake. I used organic low-sodium broth and sodium-free bouillon powder, and the salt level was perfect. With or without dumplings, this is a keeper! BTW, I used my 5 qt crockpot and the biscuits were pretty crowded, so I will use my larger pot next time and see if that helps.

    This was my first time making Chicken & Dumplings!! It was delicious!! I followed the recipe exact, except I realized I didn’t have any bioullen cubes. So I used two table spoons of Watkins chicken gravy base instead. And then I wanted to make my own dumplings. So I found a simple flour dumpling recipe online and made those. Everything turned out perfect, it was delicious!! Everyone should try this recipe!! ( For the dumplings I just added them in to the crockpot in the last hour on low. It took about an hour and half for the dumplings to fully cook, but it was well worth it. They were light and fluffy.)

    This was really good. There was a taste that I did not quite like … perhaps the cream of celery soup,I think I will subtitute cream of shroom next time. I added fresh mushrooms to start and then added frozen peas about a half hour before I added the biscuits. I used semi frozen skinless chicken breasts but cubed them before cooking to eliminate the shredding step and to make sure they cooked. Next time I think I will do equal parts breasts and thighs to add more flavor!

    Angela, you can alternate your cream of soups pretty easily…especially, cream of chicken and mushroom. It may change the flavor slightly, but I’m sure it will still be delicious! Girl, you need to just GO FOR IT! The more you crock the easier it will get. Just realize that your crock is like you oven, in that some cook hotter than others. The first few times you crock your dinner, do it while you’ll be home. Then you can watch your meal and make sure it’s not overcooking (watch for burning around the edges, but DON’T lift the lid!!!! Only watch through the lid). I hope this helps!

  71. Angela

    I have cream of mushroom soup on hand. Can I use this instead of the cream of chicken? Will it alter the flavor too much? A friend told me about your website, and I have been really enjoying learning about crockin. I have always been nervous about the crockpot and ruining my meals but the videos and webiste allow me to see all that I should know.

  72. Michelle

    If I leave out the Cream of celery soup do I need to replace that with a second can of cream of chicken or will the one be ok? My family doesn’t like celery.

    I made this last night with a few adjustments. I omitted the butter, used 2 packets of Herb-Ox sodium free chicken bouillon, and low sodium chicken broth. My husband and I both went back for seconds and I even ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning (I’m fighting an upper respiratory/sinus thing & the warmth was what I craved). I will be making this again, and again, and again. I’m going to try using Mary Hill’s frozen dumplings next time because they’re the traditional dumplings I’m used to, not to knock the biscuits in this recipe.

    My first recipe to try after finding your website, and it was a homerun!! I did definitely notice that if the biscuits are cut small, they will cook faster and more evenly. Four men in my house, and they all loved it!! Thanks a bunch :)

    It can, Stephanie. But you will still need the last hours to cook the biscuits in the crock.

  80. Stephanie

    So, I was just wondering. I wanted to have this as a Sunday meal, but things got outta control and I didn’t get it started until noon… Could it be cooked on High for 5-6 hours?

  81. Debbie

    Loved, loved, loved this! My kids and husband thought this was fabulous! I made as directed except for the bouillion. Since we were in a hurry, once I got home from work, I poured it into a pot on the stove, pulled out the chicken and shredded, brought to a boil and added my biscuits then. Will make again and again!

    Tania, If you want to make it less salty, try skipping the bullion cubes as you suggested. That should help you make it less salty. Not sure why your biscuits were hard to cook. How long did it take?

    I was super excited about this but had a hard time getting the biscuit pieces to cook and then it was way too salty for us. I bought low sodium soup when I could but I wonder how I could convert this to cut the salt. My son loved it but I’m very concerned about the sodium content. I wonder if there was a way to change the recipe to use less canned soup. Wonder I’d the bullion could be skipped too. I would love to make it again but less salty.

    Sara, at the same time you shred your chicken…about an hour. :)
    Tonya, start with frozen chicken and that will give you a couple extra hours! Also, if your slow cooker switches to warm automatically that can buy you up to four hours. Hopefully, that’s enough for ya!
    David, try this! http://crockingirls.com/recipes/squash-casserole/

  86. Tonya

    Can I cook this longer than 8 hours without overcooking the chicken? I would like to put it on before I go to work, but I am generally gone about 10.5 hrs.

  87. Sara

    Can you give an approximate time for the biscuits (doneness)?

    Sounds like your tweaks were winners, Michele! To make it even easier…boil noodles at the beginning of the week and refrigerate for easy use the rest of the week!

  94. Michele

    I loved this soup. My 16 year old even had 3 bowls. I was a little afraid about using the biscuts for the dumplings so I bought frozen dumplings and cooked them separate – well they didn’t turn out so rather than ruin my soup I decided to add noodles to it. I only had macaroni noodles( I used half of the 160z box in the soup) I added an extra can of Chicken broth and a can of water and 2 more Chicken bouillon cubes. Turned out wonderful. I loved that the chicken was easy to shred after cooking. It is so hard planning dinners when we are so busy with the kids. This receipe allowed me to make a wonderful homemade soup for my children and it was ready when I came home from work. Only had to boil the noodle. Thank you for the receipe and making my life easier :)

    My family loved this! I will use low sodium broth next time just a little salty with regular soups and boullion. I had no problem with the dumpings. My crock was on warm when I came home. I cranked it to high and cut the biscuts in 4ths, gave it a stir to cover the dough. Cooked for about another hour….just enough time to get the homework done. I will never make this from scratch again. Can’t wait to try the taco stew:)

    I made this with a few changes. I left out the cream of celery and the celery because my husband hates celery, used boneless, skinless thighs and cut everything in half because there is just the 2 of us. I was a little worried about dumplings in the crock, but gave it a try. So glad a I did! My husband loved this and he is a very picky eater. I was shocked, but delighted. I will definitely make this again.

    And Ruth, be sure you are pinching off “thumb” size pieces of dough from your can of biscuits. The smaller the pieces of dough for your dumplings, the faster they will cook.
    Cyndy, glad you found a keeper! And love the idea of making chicken/veggie sandwiches for leftovers. Thanks for the idea, Cyndy.

  116. Cyndy

    Made this a few nights ago, and the family loved it! Was a bit too salty for me, next time I’ll make with low sodium soup, and maybe delete the bouillon. The guys loved the dumplings, and made sure they ate them all! With the leftover chicken and veggies, I have made cold chicken sandwiches for lunches. No need to add anything, it tastes SO great!!

    Hey girl…sorry you had to throw out your chicken and dumplings. That would probably make me cry. You need to cook your dumplings for at least 30 minutes with the lid on to make sure the dough cooks through. Test one after 30 to make sure it is done and cook longer if needed.

  119. Ruth

    They would of turned out great but my dumplins never did get done. They stayed all gooey and doughy. Did you continue to cook with the lid on or off? I had to throw out the whole batch. I was so disappointed. I noticed others responded with the same issue. Can anyone help?!?!?

    Another thing you can do is coat your raw biscuits in flour before you put them in your crock. The pot pie is a yummy idea!

    With my husbands help – we made this the other day. It’s good but it is very thin Add some flour if you want a thicker sauce. The leftovers are going to be turned into a pot pie, they are perfect for that!

    Debbie, you will need a 10 oz can of biscuits, push them down into the liquid, let it cook for about an hour – hour 1/2.

  123. Debbie E.

    how many cans of biscuits do you use? and approximatly do you cook after you add the biscuits..

  124. betty m.

    I use Bisquik for my dumplings, but I beat an egg in a 2/3 cup measuring cup then add the milk folling the recipe on the box. My drop dumplings come out very light and fluffy.

  125. Kimberly W.

    Love this – made it for my husband tonight and he adored it. I made a few modifications, though.
    - used rotisserie chicken (all of the breast meat and some of the thigh meat)
    - cream of mushroom to replace cream of celery soup
    - 5 – 6 cups broth
    - 1 cup frozen peas (right at the end)
    - 3 cups egg noodles
    annnd… I did it all on the stovetop!
    So, I sauteed veggies in butter (2T), added broth, cooked noodles in boiling broth for about half of the cooking time, added soup and chicken, then dropped the biscuits on top (small pieces). Turned the heat down to low. I left it uncovered for 10 minutes, and then covered for 10 minutes — it was perfect!
    Thanks, ladies! Love your work!

  127. Kelli B.

    I made this today and it was delicious! My husband even told me how great this recipe is. One of the things that I modified to save time was I used a rotisserie chicken, that I bought at a local store, instead of chicken breasts. It was a little soupy but I think I added too much liquid. I got started late so I also cooked the vegetables on the stove in the chicken broth. Then I added the veggies and broth to the crockpot, added the soups, chicken, salt and pepper and did some house work. I added the biscuits later and it turned out wonderful! It is definitely a recipe I will keep using especially in the winter.

    I make my dumplings from scratch. I have never cared for biscuits or tortillas as dumplings. I have a family recipe for dumplings and with that recipe and this soup-DELICIOUS! I also add no yolk egg noodles to my soup, too. Chicken Noodle with Dumplings :) My family loves it! I omit the celery though since nobody likes celery (I use the cream of celery though!).

    Another idea for dumplings is to use flour tortillas torn into bite-sized pieces. All you really need to do is put them in long enough to become soft and you don’t have to worry about cooking them. It’s delicious!

  134. Elena R.

    I loved this recipe but I noticed that my dumplings took a long time to cook. So the next time I made it I ripped the pieces and put them on a baking sheet and cooked them half way through and then put them in the crock for the rest of the cook time.
    Good Luck!

    I have made this recipe maybe 3-4 times now and every time it comes out perfect! Love the flavors and it is just so simple to follow the directions and come out with a great product each time. When adding the dumplings at the end, make sure to put fairly small sized pieces in the crock pot and let them cook for maybe 15-20 minutes or so. I also like to add some chopped parsley and a little extra chicken boullion to get a great flavor!

    I’ve got this recipe from an Female Army Sergeant in the early 80′s. Use it often, BUT never had it the Crock Pot Style. Can’t wait to try it :) :) Dumplins: for my top of stove version, I had the chicken/soup on high, Reduce heat to low, tear biscuits into quarter pieces, drop in biscuits (dumplins).

    Cook uncovered over low heat for 10 minutes, then cook cover for an additional 10 minutes. Test the dumplins with a toothpick, dumplins are done when toothpick comes out clean.

    Maybe this will help others???

  138. Tammy W.

    I have tried this recipe twice, and both times the dumplings never got done. The first time I added them and cooked on low for 1.5 hours. The second time I tried changing the setting to high, but that didn’t help either. I ended up scooping out the raw dough and baking little biscuits in the oven. I added them just before serving. Does anyone have a tip for getting the dumplings to cook in the crock? We love the flavor of the recipe, it would just be so much easier if it was all in one pot. Thanks!
