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
Pretty good. Could be much better if I used the called-for ingredients. Didn't have poultry seasoning or celery, so I used 1/2 tsp rosemary and 1/2 tsp thyme and some sprinkles of celery seed. Next time make sure to use poultry seasoning- the rosemary taste was too strong. Also added a bag of frozen cut green beans and 1/2 bag of frozen corn (good addition). Because I started the stew too late in the crockpot, I transferred it to a stock pot during the last hour. Used Bisquick for dumplings.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!
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.
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!
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!!
Awesome flavor. Even added a few frozen green peas. (Maybe 2/3 cup) I used Cream of Chicken soup and Cream of Celery.
Poured chicken mixture over cooked biscuits instead... Yum!
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
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.
Yummy and hit the spot. I looked over many recipes before settling on this one. Everyone makes a few modifications and here are mine: I added a bag of frozen veggies. I also added a splash of cooking wine (why not, right?). I sneaked in some other seasonings, too, but used the ones called for in the recipe. I added some rosemary, some garlic, and a bit of thyme. I also did not layer like instructed. I just chunked it all in and said a quick Hail Mary. I was worried about the biscuits getting doughy but they were perfect. I had never made chicken and dumplings before and these turned out great. It worked! This dish was delicious. Very hearty and perfect for cold Kansas winter days.

So easy and so good! I added a can of creamed corn with the veggies, and added the other half can of broth after shredding the chicken and adding the dumplings. Nice and creamy, and filling too!
I used all the chicken broth and made biscuit mix from scratch.
This was excellent! Great comfort food! Only thing I did different was used about a quarter can of the chicken broth in place of the water and just used the remaining broth in the recipe. Also cooked the chicken amd veggies on low for 7 hours then shredded amd added the buscuits and cooked on high for 1 1/2 hour as directed. No other changes and we loved it!
This dish is delicious and so easy to make. I didn't have four chicken breasts, only two of those ones that come frozen in the bag in the freezer section of the grocery store. So I used two chicken breasts and three medium sized chicken thighs. Which, I think added more flavor. I prepared the recipe as written BUT I added some thyme, sage, and celery seed (all to my own taste). In the last cooking hour, I also added a little bit of mixed veggies, the type that has peas, carrots, etc. with a tablespoon of flour mixed with a bit of water to thicken the sauce. My family enjoyed this dish and I love that it is a SLOW COOKER MEAL, to boot!
I made this today, followed the recipe almost exactly. Since I did not have low sodium chicken broth, I just put a little extra water so that it would not be too salty. I set it up in the crockpot before going out and I came back to an amazing aroma. I used Pillsbury reduced fat biscuit dough, cut them up into 8 pieces and had 3 biscuits left over for later. Will definitely make this again!
VERY FLAVORFUL !! I used 4 chicken thighs, broth instead of water and added the usual veggies (canned peas and potatoes) but other than that followed the recipe as is. The only thing I would change is to make homemade biscuits instead of canned. My canned name brand biscuits never puffed up even after leaving them in for 2 hours. Will make again
This is a weekly meal for my boys and I. My youngest comes home and shreds the chicken in the crockpot and tears up the biscuits - throws them on top and done. Tastes great as leftovers the next day as well. Highly recommend trying this easy recipe. Only thing I change is I just throw the chicken in with everything - don't worry about the poultry seasoning. Also for ease in the morning I use the pre chopped onion and celery from the store so I can just dump it in before heading to work!
really good and comforting, cooked on low all day and high with the dumplings once we got home
Wonderful comfort food! Made almost as directed. I did however add more broth as other reviewers suggested. I used frozen Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits (thawed and cut in 1/4's) and thighs instead of breast meat...I may have used too many biscuits because there was not enough broth, even after my addition. I will make this again and adjust biscuit/broth ratio. Thanks for the EASY recipe :)
Really easy and tasty recipe. I marked it down to 4 stars because it needed more liquid, the biscuits soaked up what little there was. I also think this recipe would be better with cubed chicken instead of shredding. The shredded chicken gets lost in with the dumplings.
So good and so easy to make! I just used Costco's pre-shredded rotisserie chicken and Trader Joe's MirePoix mix, I ran out of rosemary so I substituted tarragon and it came out just perfect!!!! Nom nom nom
Two thumbs up!! As other reviewers had suggested, I added 1 can creamed corn at the beginning and a 20 oz pack of frozen peas when I put the dumplings in. Turned out amazing
This recipe was great! I poured the second half of the chicken stock in right after the veggies and before the butter since the recipe did not mention when to use. Also, I did not stir the biscuits/dumplings in to cook. I just cut small (about nickel size) and placed them on top since I like to make sure they cook through enough. They were perfect! I did omit the celery only because I tend to feel like using celery overpowers the recipes I have tried it in.
This recipe is very favorful. I cut the chicken into smaller pieces therefore they took a lot less time to cook. Right before I added the cut up biscuits I also stirred in, 1 small package of frozen peas. This made it even more colorful. Next time I make this I will also add a bay leaf and 1 can of chicken broth....most of the original recipe liquid was absorbed into the biscuits. This was a delicious and easy recipe....great for fall and winter months.
Don’t use butter flaky style store bought biscuit, this made it sweet. Next time I’ll only use one case of cream of chicken and leave onions in quarters so I can take them out. We are more of a broth chicken and dumplings family than gravy, but Everyone ate it! I also flattened the biscuits out and cut smaller (think 16 pieces) instead of quarters for more of them and less doughy biscuits.
This is a great comfort food and easily prepared. However...made as instructed, it was very bland. I added fresh garlic, parsley, hot sauce, and an onion/garlic salt blend.
So easy and yummy. I used frozen peas and carrots and fresh celery. I never used water just extra chicken broth. I floured the biscuit pieces. I put it on low for 6 hours then high for the last two and added the biscuits for the last two hours because I was worried they wouldn't cook.
I wound up cooking it for a little longer because my husband got stuck working late. I only used 3 chicken breasts since that was already enough to fill the bottom of my crockpot pretty well. I didn't use low sodium or low fat for the broth and soups, but otherwise I think I followed it to a T and it turned out great. My husband said it was "jammin'" and went back for seconds. Next time I think I'll use the recommended low sodium items (y'know, that the recipe actually calls for) because the way I made it this time was a tid bit salty for my taste.
Yummy and hardy!
My kids loved this. I didn't have biscuits so I used crescent rolls instead and everyone thought it was great. And it was also very forgiving. I didn't have the soups or the carrots and I added them in after about 3 hours
I made it exactly as the recipe said however, I did make my dumplings and cooked in another pot. I was afraid my slow cooker would not hold them. I liked the recipe very much and I will try it again but I will make some changes when I try it. I do however think that I will leave the recipe as is without the dumplings and try making it with rice, noodles, or maybe potatoes. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.
This was just what I was looking for-a good base to build on and easy to make. I skipped the whole water bath for my chicken, just seasoned the chicken directly, lightly browned it for more flavor (I can do this right in my slow cooker), then dumped in all the veggies, including about 2/3 cup of peas. I mixed the whole can of chicken broth with the soups and rosemary and poured this over the top. I added the biscuits as directed and they were done in about an hour. Next time and there will be a next time, I,ll make my own biscuit dough.
I thought this was delicious, though next time will not use the poultry seasoning. Both my husband and I found it overwhelming.
This was a huge hit in my house. I did add peas during the last 1.5 hours when I added the two cans of biscuits. Delicious!
Followed the direction for the most part but added some fresh minced garlic (about 1 tsp), parsley, garlic sea salt blend and a bag or frozen corn. So delicious!
very easy recipe. used 1/2 can of chicken broth and 1/2 can of water to cut down on sodium. cooked everything for 5.5 hrs. turned out perfect. let a friend try some and she loved it and she has never been a fan of chicken n dumplings.
I love this recipe! I like to premake a couple batches to freeze as "dump meals" I just leave out the liquids and the "dumplings" so I can just dump in the bag and then add the soups/broth. I even made it for a large gathering of friends and it was a huge hit!
I didn't have the rosemary, but it turned out great, I will have to double the recipe next time.
So easy and my family loved it!
Super easy to make and delicious! I am puertorican and my family loves it. Close to the abuelita made stuff
It's not even done yet and I'm picking in the pot!!! It smells great and tastes wonderful!!! My new comfort food recipe!! I added more dumplings just because I had grands in the fridge. I can't wait to sit down with my plate!!! 35 min and counting!!
The entire family loved this meal. The only complaint was that there were not enough dumplings.
My boyfriend won’t ever eat my soups. He’s a Meat and potato guy. THIS, however, he’s asked for again and again. Thanks!!
This recipe is really delicious! I made my own roux instead of using canned soup though.
This was really good! I will definitely make it again!
I followed the exact recipe. We thought it was good but next time I would add another can of chicken broth. We like more of a liquid soup consistency and thought this was kind of thick.
i will deffinitely make this again, It was easy and very very tasty. I cut down the amount of carrots as i dont like cooked carrots much, and cut out rosemary, dont like that either, it was great. and my guest loved it too.
Amazing-dough turns into dumplings
This was super easy and delicious!!!
I was skeptical since the recipe seemed so simple. It is quite delicious. The only changes I made, were seasoning the chicken my way. I like adobo and garlic powder. I didn't use water at all, doubled the chicken broth, Cooked overnight on low. The biscuits do look weird the last hour, but once you stir them a little, they look more appetizing. I served mine over a little egg noodles. Yummy!
I loved this recipe. The flavor was perfect. But I made a Rookie mistake and purchased the wrong type of biscuits. (Pilsbury Grands, Flaky Layer) Thank the cooking gods that they were cut in small pieces. The Grands ballooned up. Ha! Nevertheless, my Wife and I ate it up like it was our last meal(s). Excellent leftovers
I followed this pretty closely to the recipe. I did add Garlic salt ( I put garlic in everything!). I also took someone else’s idea of flouring the biscuits to make it thicker. Glad I did. It was perfect. Next time I may add a can of Cream of mushroom soup (another reviewers idea!) and a chicken bouillon cube
Easy to put together, family enjoyed it very much. Will make again.
Really good and really easy! I made biscuits separately and added a layer of cubed potatoes to the chicken. My family loved it and has requested it again!
It was okay. Make sure you have extra chicken broth or water when you reheat.
This was really tasty! Made this exactly as the recipe listed with the exception that I made fresh biscuits and poured the mixture on top.
I used a lot more black pepper and poultry seasoning, but this recipe was a huge hit with my family! Will definitely make again!!
Take the time to make your own poultry seasoning...but this recipe is FANTASTIC. Accurate & recommend low-sodium soups and add Himalayan Salt at the end to taste.
I made this pretty much as directed. I didn't soak the chicken in the seasoned water mixture but I did whisk it up and just poured it over the chicken instead. I used the whole can of broth at the beginning. This turned out amazing and had my house smelling so good! Next time I make this, I will double the recipe. We had no leftovers!
added all of the chicken broth more carrots and celery than listed. it is so creamy and buttery I love it
I used the entire can of chicken broth and I also used cream of mushroom soup with the cream of chicken soup because I didn't have cream of celery soup on hand. I love chicken and dumplings and this recipe was so easy and yummy. I will definitely make it again using the cream of celery soup with the cream of chicken soup.
This was my first time making dumplings. I would say overall, it turned out pretty good. i would make this recipe again.
This was delicious and super easy to make! I used Cajun seasoning to season the chicken before adding it into the crockpot and it gave it just the right kick. My husband is picky about this meal, but he loved this recipe! Will definitely be making this again and soon!!
It is delicious with exception of the biscuit "dumplings". I added half a bag of frozen peas, an extra can of cream of chicken soup and an additional 5 ounces of chicken broth. I will make it again but next time I will bake the biscuits rather than add them to the chicken dish.
I made it as directed...it turned out AMAZING!! Definitely making this again.
I changed a couple things but this is so easy and so amazing on a cold day
My boyfriend and I work different shifts so this is a nice way to make sure we stay away from fast food for lunch and dinners during work. My Boyfriend ate about half of it when it was done in the crockpot and he couldn’t get enough of it!! I added some peas towards the end and it was wonderful!! I’ll be making this again no doubt!
My family loved it!!! I followed the recipe exactly! It turned out great! Will definitely make this again! Pretty simple to make!
So easy! Perfect for a snowstorm day. Used 3 large chicken breast skinless, boneless seasoned with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper . Used water with an added pack of chicken gravy. Used 3 medium onions, baby carrots and one stick of celery. Not a fan of cooked celery Next time will use whole carrots. The Baby carrots have a certain taste when cooked due to the water in the bag . Added can of Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken, chicken broth. Liked the dried rosemary . Used canned biscuits 16 oz . Thought they were kinda of bland, next time will try Bisquick seasoned with dried rosemary. Came out creamy My husband hates chicken pot pie, said this was a keeper and excellent. May add sugar snap peas last hour for more color.
I put all the dough at top then threw whole crock pot insert into the oven to broil for two minutes to make nice brown dumplings. Much better than the gewey way recipes recommended.
I must say I was skeptical about this getting done in my crockpot, but boy was I wrong. It cooked through and was a huge hit. Even my picky daughter liked it! I will make this again and again.
I just made this soup and the family loved it. The only thing I did different was add some garlic too the soup while it was cooking and I diced up the chicken before I placed it in the slow cooker so I didn't have to remove it later.
I loved the taste but my dumplings were mushy this was my first time doing dumplings in the crockpot
Our family loves this and it's great for kids and picky eaters. I have slightly modified, not because the original really needed it but because we like it as soup and some members of the family dont like celery or onion. I use a whole can of chix broth and even a little extra water. I also only do carrots and about 3 good size potatoes, omitting the celery and onion. I also add in 1 extra can of cream of chix soup and I dont put the rosemary in (I used to just reduce the amount of rosemary but I find that it's just as good without it).
I through jalapeño on top as I usually do on most everything and it was awesome
This was a simple and tasty recipe. I was pleasantly surprised by the dumplings! Soft and flavorful and so easy to make . This would make a great pot luck dish.
Made as directed turned out well. Will definitely make again
Made it and it was delicious. Added peas.
Love the recipe! Ended up using too much chicken broth but overall awesome recipe!
I will definitely make this again! It was delicious and creamy, and the biscuit dough for the dumplings was such a time saver!
This was great. My whole family enjoyed it. I cut the biscuit pieces in to 9pc per biscuit for smaller bites, and left the dough sitting on top of the mixture for an hour on high.
My family loves this! I followed the recipe exactly.
My family loved this! No need for all the extra steps- I dumped everything in the crockpot at once (except for the biscuits) and cooked it for the suggested time. Turned out great!
Love this recipe. And it's a great way to use chicken breast we don't use! Very filling and savory.
I love this recipe. All my little kids do too, which is rare. I made it with just one can of cream of chicken and omitted the celery and cream of celery (my husband can't stand celery). It is one of my go to's now.
I made this according to the recipe given. My husband loved it but me, not so much so we compromised on the rating. I agree that this is a good dish for a cold night but I would use fresh rosemary and pearl onions. And I will make it again. I particularly liked the suggestion to cut the biscuits in quarters and roll in a little flour to make the dish a little thicker.
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how this turned out. We have a friend who makes & sells the best homemade chicken dumpling soup in his restaurant so we were prepared to compare this soup to his. These dumplings weren't as good as egg dumplings but they were better than most baking powder dumplings which tend to be softer and mushier. The broth was thicker but had a lot of good flavor. Since it was easy to make, I will definitely make it again.
Super easy and tastes delicious! I might try something different for the dumplings next time but the rest is VERY good!
We've made this multiple times. It's good exactly as written and way better when you've made it so many times you can play around with it. We no longer put dough in the pot, we bake biscuits and pour this over them. We use far less liquid now because the frozen chicken we use has water in it and it was more soupy than a rich thick stew type we were looking for. Once we cut down the liquid (if we use frozen chicken) it gives me that thicker consistency we desire. We kind of use whatever spices we like and I've added sliced sautéed mushrooms. We love this dish and its a staple in our house for the last 1 1/2 years.
This was awesome. My two teenagers couldn't get enough. I used the entire can of chicken broth, but kept everything else pretty much the same.
Great recipe. Soooo good
This was very simple, and had all the ingredients at hand. I added extra poultry seasoning and rosemary, but it still seemed to be missing something. Next time, I'll play around with some more seasonings. Chicken was very tender. Thanks for the recipe!
Quick and delish! The whole family raved! The only thing I might change is adding a bit more dumplings.
My picky children devoured it. I did add more broth and used creamed soups I had on hand, you really can't go wrong with any "cream of..." soup. A keeper.
My family loved it! Will be making it again.
It was just OK
