Slow Cooker Chicken & Cheater Dumplings

This recipe comes from my dear friend and cousin, Allison.  It's actually Carl's cousin's wife, or as I usually say, Cam's bff's mom.  :)  It is the perfect pick me up when you are sick or on a cool fall day.  Luckily it was just the latter we were working with today!
 This is just slightly modified from her version

Slow Cooker Chicken & Cheater Dumplings

4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons of butter
1 (10.75 oz) can of cream of chicken soup
1 (10.75 oz) can of cream of celery soup
3 1/2 cups of chicken broth (If you use low-sodium, you will just want to add salt to taste)
1 onion, finely diced
1 cup celery, diced-

1 1/2 cup carrots, diced
Pepper to taste- about 2 tsp

*As for the dumplings… You can make your own dumplings, or use 1 (10 oz) package of refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into small pieces

1. Excluding the biscuits,  put all ingredients in a slow cooker on low for 8 hours or high for 4.
2. About 60-90 minutes before serving, remove chicken and pull into pieces and return to the soup mixture, place the torn biscuit dough in and cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.


  1. This looks soooo good and I never would've thought about the biscuits!!

  2. I forgot about this recipe! Yesssssss!
