Chicken and Dumplings in the Crock Pot

Feb 28, 2013 by

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted a recipe and I’m sorry.  I haven’t been cooking as much as I’ve been having some sinus issues that have prevented me from smelling and thus tasting and thus less cooking.  I’m working on getting the sinus stuff figured out, but I’ve had some better days than others and tried to cook when I could taste it and now I recommend these awesome recipes to you.  Enough talk about boring sinus issues, onto great and simple recipes you should make.

I’ve made some awesome chicken and dumplings in the dutch oven while camping, but this one is even easier in the crock pot.  It really doesn’t get much easier than this and it is oh so yummy.  Also check out these awesome red bowls I got my wife for Christmas.


Here’s what you’ll need



  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 2 cans of cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can of chicken broth
  • 1 Chicken bullion cube
  • Carrots – about 4 big ones
  • Celery – about 6-8 stalks
  • Onion (not pictured)
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • Bisquick – 2 cups (not pictured)


Bust out the crock pot and throw in the chicken breast


dump in the cream of chicken soup


and the chicken broth and bullion cube


also parsley flakes and set the crockpot on high and cook for 2-3 hours.  After that, take a couple of forks and separate the chicken into pieces.  Sorry don’t have a picture for that.

Next up, the vegetables


I like celery so I used a lot.  Chop them up into 1/2 inch chunks


Same with the carrots


I forgot an onion, but luckily my garden hooked me up.  I love shopping in my garden.


chop it up in some thin slices


Throw it all into the crock pot and let it cook for another hour


Now time to add the dumplings part of the recipe.  Per the bos, add 2 cups Bisquick and 1 cup water and mix it up in a bowl with a fork.   Dump in small spoon-sized pieces into the crock pot and let it cook another 30 minutes to an hour until the veggies are cooked to your liking.  I don’t like them mushy, so I try not to overcook them.  Try is the key word for me sometimes.


And voila.  Your house will smell like awesome homemade chicken and dumplings and you will get to eat awesome chicken and dumplings.   Both are awesome and you and your family will love it.
