This is the easiest crock pot chicken and dumpling recipe ever! It's really kid friendly, too. My picky eater DS ate 3 helpings!

2 chicken breast--boneless/skinless (I just wanted to add that I've been using 2 lbs. chicken thighs instead...the breasts were too dry for me)
1 can cream chicken soup
2 T margarine
2 cans biscuits
1 soup can of water

Put the chicken breasts in a crockpot, top w/ soup, margarine, and water. Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. Then, shred the chicken w/ 2 forks and stir. 45 minutes before serving (turn to "high" if cooking on "low"), add cut up biscuits.

Very simple and very good!!

I got this recipe here on the DIS and I'm glad I found it. I make it at least 2 times a month this winter!

Yummy! I will have to try both of these. I have a great friend who makes it homemade in a pressure cooker but they make me nervous.

I made the Chicken and Dumplings with the canned biscuits but found the biscuits to be a bit undercooked. I cooked them for the directed 45 minutes on high. Is there a way to tell if the dumplings are adequately cooked before serving?

Hmm, 45 minutes was fine for me. If you want, just play around with the time. I know that with my crock pot, things cook faster than others. If, for example, a recipe calls for me to cook something for 6-8 hours on low, my crock pot will be done in 4-6 hours.

Next time, maybe try one of the dumplings and see if it's done to your satisfaction.

Sorry!
