Favorite Crock Pot Recipes:
Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings
I looked to these two recipes for a starting point… one & two
I’ll share below what I ended up doing/using.

3 Medium Size Chicken Breasts
2 Cans Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
2 Medium Golden Potatoes
1/4 cup Peas
1/2 Cup Diced Onion
1 TB Parsley
2 TB Butter
Enough Water to Cover Ingredients
4 Biscuits (I used store brand..baked up the rest for the girls/breakfast)

Place Chicken in crock pot..
2 Cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
Then remaining ingredients: potates, peas, onions, parsley, butter
Cover with water
Put lid on..and put on high for 4 hours.
Near the end I used 2 forks to shred up the chicken.
When 4 hours is up.. Cut up the biscuits into 9 pieces each.. drop into crock pot. Stir around.
Cook them for 30 minutes..
Done! time to eat!

Hope you like this one… It’s a new favorite.
Comfort food that is easy. I like it. :)

Look forward to sharing more crock pot recipes with you!
I don’t know about you..but I’m always scavenging Pinterest for new ones to try ;)

    This looks so good! I am pregnant with #4 and my cravings have been all over the place this time…pretty much, I know I crave it when I see it. This is definitely going on the “must make soon!” list :)

    Kinda confused. This was linked from the freezer crock pot post. This doesn’t say how to go about freezing. I’m assuming you don’t add the biscuits to the freezer bag and freeze, yes? I’m assuming they go in at the end and are kept uncooked in the fridge? Or did you buy pre-baked biscuits? I’ve never made chicken and dumplings before so I have no idea.

    Do you use already made biscuits? Or biscuits that need to be baked?

    I have this going right now.. I totally need to do the prep work ahead of time, and it would be super easy.> I watch 5 little ones under the age of 2… so it would be so much nicer to have it ready to throw in.. but it’s sure smelling good. thanks for the great ideas~

    ? I am assuming that you cut up the potatos before you put them in, is that right?

      I made this last week, super yummy. I bought smaller potatoes in the first place, and then cut them in 1/2. I think the ones I bought were called fingerlings – very small. One thing I might do differently, I bought the Pillsbury Grands biscuits, the bigger ones. I used 4 of them, cut up small, but I think maybe I should’ve bought the smaller biscuits. I made this on Saturday. On Sunday my 9 year old asked “When are you going to make that dinner again?” I figured out he was talking about THIS dinner, and he obviously loved it!

    Is there a place that shows how to make this a freezer meal? I am not sure what instructions to use to freeze instead of cook ot right away. Thanks.

    For the freezer meal portion – based on other things I’ve read – is you will freeze everything without cooking…minus the biscuits.

    I’m loving your freezer crock pot cooking ideas, being 8 months preg with a 13 month old I am stocking up my freezer ready for the next few months!
    I’m confused by the reference to “biscuits” – but then I’m an Aussie, what we call biscuits are sweet little things you eat with tea or coffee. Are the biscuits savoury? Would a basic scone dough be a good substitute?

    Since I’m at work longer than 4 hour, do you think that I could cook this on low for 8 hours, then do the biscuits for30 on high when I got home?

      hmm maybe! I never cook on low so don’t have much experience with it! But it’s worth a try!

      Yes you can cook low for 8 hrs! I have made this numerous times. However if keeping it on low put biscuits in 1 hr before eating or turn it on high at the end and add biscuits and cook 30 min.

    oh my…i should check my spelling and not be in such a rush…do you put the biscuits in cooked or uncooked?
