Really really good! I used almost a whole can of broth. The directions didn't seen to say at what point to add other half of broth. I put it all in at start. Only other minor change was to add a bunch of frozen peas at the time I put the biscuits in. Family devoured! Even pickiest complainer loved it. Thanks! (I Cooked biscuit/dumplings a bit over 1 hr and they wre done) Read More

Followed to the letter with the exception of poultry seasoning did not have any so I used a little thyme rosemary and sage. Turned out amazing! I was skeptical that the dough would make nice dumplings but it turned out so well! My only caution is to use small pieces of dough they grow as they bake. Two teenagers asked for seconds (and thirds!) Made this yesterday and I wanted to add - for all the working/cooking moms and dads out there I tried this on low for 8.5 hours when I had to be in the office and it turned out really well. I actually didn't notice a difference. Just be aware you either need someone to put the dumplings in ( I trusted a teenager) or it will take another 1 - 1.5 hours after you get home! Read More

Very easy and very good. I did use one can of Cream of mushroom & one can of Cream of Chicken soup. I didn't have any Chicken broth so I used my 2-low salt Chicken cubes in 12 ounces of water. I did add 1 tsp. of garlic 1/2 tsp.Italian seasonings and Mrs. Dash Table Blend. I cut each biscuit in 4 pieces and rolled them in flour for the final hour of cooking. It thickened up the sauce and it was wonderful. I added a salad and it was a very good winter dinner. Read More

So delicious and so simple!! I used 6 chicken breast because we wanted plenty of left overs. I made some small adjustments according to what I had on hand. I did not have any poultry seasoning so I used Italian seasonings and sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. I did not soak the chicken first I seasoned each breast and placed them in the bottom of the Crock-Pot. I then poured about half a box of great value chicken stock over the chicken. I chopped up one large onion and about 6 cloves of garlic very finely (we love garlic) and put it all into the pot on top of the chicken and broth. Next I put about half of a large bag of mixed frozen veggies into the Crock-Pot and cut up my butter into cubes and scattered it on top of the veggies. I then poured my soups directly over the veggies I used one large can of cream of chicken soup and one small one. I cooked this on low for 7 hours then I took all of the chicken out and shredded it with two forks and returned it to the Crock-Pot. I used refrigerated biscuit dough as the recipe calls for and cut each biscuit into fourths. I rolled the pieces in flour and then dropped them into the top of my chicken stew mix. Leaving them at the very top I placed the lid back on and turned the Crock-Pot to high and cooked for another hour. Dumplings were cooked perfectly and the chicken soup came out delicious and full of flavor!! Will definitely be making this many more times in the future! Read More

This is very simple and easy. I used whole baby carrots because that is what I had on hand. I didn't use water or soak the chicken in water at all. I put about half a box of great value chicken broth in at the beginning and let it go on high for 6 hours because I was at work. The chicken is so tender. I added the biscuit dough and let it go another hour on high when I got home and it tastes fantastic plus I have leftovers!! Read More

I've never made chicken and dumplings before so I didn't know what to expect but was thrilled with the way it came out. My family finished it up and asked if I would make it again the next week. I only have two comments. Being a novice I didn't realize that the biscuit dough bites should be placed on top not mixed in with the stew. Yikes what a gooey mess. Also I did add some frozen petite peas which I thought made it too sweet but that's just personal preference. Fantastic easy recipe Read More

Loved this recipe. Made it pretty much as written but used chicken thighs...I think they always work better in slow cooker recipes. Next time I will add more carrots and celery and include peas. Read More
