Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings Recipe
Of all the recipes I've posted here on Passionate Penny Pincher, these Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings (and of course everyone's favorite Italian Beef) are consistently the ones people mention to me. In fact, I notice folks searching for them almost daily on PPP.
These are just so easy, and while I love to make these old fashioned homemade Chicken and Dumplings in this recipe here (so good too!), you can't beat these for a busy weeknight.

How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
- 1-2 pounds chicken breast
- 2 cans cream of chicken soup
- 1 10 oz. can chicken broth
- 1 can water
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 onion
- 2 cans inexpensive biscuits cut in quarters
- Place chicken breast, soup, broth, water, salt, garlic powder, pepper & onion in crockpot.
- Cook on low six hours.
- Two hours before dinner time, add quartered biscuits to crockpot. Gently stir in biscuits so that they’re covered. (I used 1 and 1/2 of the two small cans of biscuits – enough to fill up the top of my crockpot. . .you can use any leftover biscuits to bake and enjoy with your meal!)
- Cook two more hours on low.
- Serve and enjoy!
