It’s finally starting to feel like Winter here- it was warm for so long that our pot of begonias only JUST kicked the bucket last week! As soon as the thermostat hit 35, Husband and I were yearning for comfort food. We decided a good recipe to make would be slow cooker chicken and dumplings! It came out great!
This recipe will be cooked on HIGH for 6 hours total, with biscuits being added at the 4 hour mark. It serves 6-8.
- 3 boneless chicken breasts (Partially frozen are fine to use! No need to thaw- but can use thawed ones if that is what you have!)
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 4 potatoes, cleaned, peeled and diced into large chunks
- 6-8 carrots, cleaned, peeled and sliced
- 1 small onion, chopped into small pieces
- 2 cans cream of chicken soup
- 3 T butter
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup of dry white wine
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 container Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Biscuits
- salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, Montreal Chicken Seasoning: 1/4 tsp of each (+ extra salt and pepper to taste at end)
- Season chicken breasts the way you’d normally season them, and place them on the bottom of your crock-pot.
- Add ALL ingredients EXCEPT biscuits and rosemary. Set slow cooker to HIGH for 6 hours.
- When it’s been 4 hours, it’s time to add the biscuits and rosemary, and pull the chicken.
- Use two forks to shred the chicken in the slow cooker, and mix all together. Add extra broth if it looks dry, as the biscuits will soak some of the liquid in the next step.
- Lay biscuits flat on a cookie sheet or chopping board and slice each biscuit into four strips.
- Throw rosemary sprigs into slow cooker. They will strip themselves in there and you can pull out the twigs later, but if you’d prefer to throw just the rosemary leaves in instead, you may.
- Add the biscuits by dropping them vertically in the slow cooker. Try not to overlap them, as they will grow larger on their own as they cook.
- Close slow cooker and let cook the final 2 hours.
- It will look pretty ugly when it’s all done (photo below!) but it’s SO TASTY, I promise! Add the extra salt and pepper to taste, if it needs it.
ENJOY a wonderful Winter comfort food! Pour yourself a glass of the same white wine you used in it, and settle in your fave chair for a hot meal and some Netflix. Perfect night. 😉
