Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings with Canned Biscuits

By: Drizzle
Servings: 10
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 4 hours 30 minutes
Total: 4 hours 45 minutes
spoonful of slow cooker chicken and dumplings
4P, 3SP blue/purple, 5SP green


  • 2 lbs raw boneless skinless chicken breast, approx 32oz cut into cubes
  • 2.5 cups peeled and diced carrots
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 1.5 cups diced onion
  • 2 cans low fat Campbell’s cream of chicken soup, 284ml cans *or anything similar, brands vary in Canada/U.S
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 package Pillsbury country biscuits *If in the U.S you can use the small 7.5oz packages with 10 small biscuits


  • Turn on the crockpot so it can preheat. Choose either high or low depending on what you want for the cooking time.
  • Cut the chicken into 1-2 inch cube size pieces, and place them in the crock pot. Add all diced veggies and seasonings.
  • Add the 2 cans of soup and the broth and stir everything well.
  • If you have the 7.5oz package of 10 biscuits (found in the U.S.) then use all 10 biscuits and cut each biscuit into 6 pieces. If you are in Canada and using the Pillsbury country biscuits use only 7 of the biscuits but still cut each biscuit into 6 pieces.
  • After 2.5 hours (on high) or 6.5 hours (on low), stir in the corn starch to thicken it up. If you cooked on low you need to turn to high for the biscuits.
  • Place the biscuit pieces in the crock pot, resting on top of the stew-like mixture. Close the lid and cook for 1-1.5 hours. It’s VERY IMPORTANT not to open the lid while the biscuits are in there "cooking." Depending on what slow cooker you have, the biscuits will take anywhere from 1-2 hours. If you can't see the biscuits without removing the lid, then check them at about the 75-minute mark. If they don't seem done, quickly put the lid back on.
  • Makes 10 servings. Enjoy!
