Slow cooker chicken & dumplings

January 10, 2021

I love cooking a meal in my slow cooker, there’s something about that smell of dinner through the house all day that just brings me comfort. Talking about comfort food this slow cooker chicken & dumplings turned out amazing and it was a big hit, it will definitely be on rotation now.. Make’s 10 servings at 3SP on both blue and purple programs, 5SP on the green program.

Serves: 10
 
3SP blue/purple, 5SP green, 5PP
Ingredients
  • 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
  • ½ 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
Instructions
  1. Heat crock pot (high or low depending on what you choose for cooking time)
  2. Cut chicken into 1-2 inch cube size pieces, place in the crock pot. add all diced veggies and the seasonings.
  3. Add the 2 cans of soup and the broth, stir well.
  4. If you are using the 7.5oz package of 10 biscuits (found in the U.S) then use all 10, cut each biscuit into 6. If you are in Canada and using the Pillsbury country biscuits use only 7 of the biscuits, cut each biscuit into 6 pieces.
  5. 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.
  6. Place biscuit pieces in the crock pot, resting on top of the stew-like mixture, make sure heat is set to high once you add the biscuits, close lid, and cook for 1-1.5 hours (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, quick cooking cookers will take less and older models may take longer, if you can't see the biscuits without removing the lid them check them at about the 75 minute mark, but be quick and if they don't seem done quickly put the lid back on.
  7. Makes 10 servings, approx 1 heaping cup servings. This will freeze well.
  8. *Note- if you can't find the same soup I used look for any alternative, cream of celery or even mushroom will work just as well, just make sure it is a condensed soup.

    Is there any way to make this without the soup? I can’t have. sodium, and all soups have tons of sodium.

      The soup does add to the overall taste/texture .. maybe use google and search for an alternative to condensed soup

      Hi Linda, yes I think the crescent rolls would work, just cut them up into small pieces.. you’d need to build the recipe in the WW app to see how it would change the overall points, I only build it as I make it, it would be a lot of work for me to build recipes with all different substitutions.. I know the crescent rolls are a little higher in points unless you use less of the dough

    Hi

    If Iโ€™m using an instant pot, how long would you suggest for the biscuits to cook?

    How can you tell the biscuits are done? I always run into a problem where the veggies cook slower than the chicken too. Any suggestions??

      As far as the veggies you could microwave them a bit beforehand.. the biscuits will be browning a bit and firm on top
