4 skinless boneless chicken breasts 2 tablespoons butter 2 cans cream of chicken soup 1 onion, finely diced 2 packages refrigerated biscuit dough water to cover
For chicken: place the chicken, butter, soup and onion in crock and fill with water to cover. Turn to high and cook 5-hours or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
For dumplings: about 30 minutes before serving, take apart dough and place biscuits into mixture in crock. The biscuits will turn into the dumplings. Test readiness of dumplings by cutting one in half; if the center is cooked the dumplings are ready to eat.
We love this recipe. So simple yet so good. I stir in some frozen peas just before adding the dumplings.

I cut the chicken up into bite sized pieces. I used my larger crock so when I put the biscuits in they would cook more evenly since they wouldn't be crowded. It was very good. I used a small onion but next time I think I will use a large one and sautee it first to add more texture and flavor.

I think I missed a few steps....either my crock pot was too small, or the directions were not specific enough. The "sauce" overflowed and the biscuits hardly fit. The end product was good comfort food, but the exact directions were not clear enough. I added carrots and potatoes and a little flour at the end to thicken it up...it was yum!

Delicious. I chose this recipe because it was so simple, but the flavor was really wonderful. I added frozen peas and corn. I had to cook the dumplings for about an hour, but I don' t know if that was just my crock pot. Will definelty make again.

Delicious. Super easy to put together. Good flavor. Tender chicken. We really liked this recipe. We will probably cut the onion down to 1/2 next time though - it was just a bit heavy on the onion for our tastes. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
