  • 1 (32 oz) container chicken broth
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can cream of chicken soup with herbs
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3-4 frozen chicken breasts
  • 1-2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots optional
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 (16 oz) tube refrigerated Pillsbury Grands Refrigerated Biscuits


  • Place chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, diced onions and celery into a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Stir well (it will be a bit lumpy from the cream of chicken soup.)
  • Add frozen chicken breasts into crock pot and season with garlic salt and pepper.
  • Cover and cook on low for about 4-6 hours (until chicken is fully cooked through.)
  • Then take the chicken out and cut it into bite size pieces or shred it with a couple of forks. Put the chicken back into the slow cooker. Add frozen vegetables into the slow cooker if you are using.
  • Take the biscuits and flatten each one with the palm of your hand. Then cut the biscuits into strips then cut down the center.
  • Put 1/2 cup flour into a bowl and place slices of biscuits into the flour and toss them to coat well with the flour.
  • Drop the coated biscuits (one by one into the slow cooker.) Doing this one at a time will keep them from sticking together when you drop them in. The flour is also going to help thicken the broth. Take a spoon and gently push the biscuits down under the broth so the tops get moistened (don't stir.)
  • Cover and cook on high for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Carefully take a dumpling out and check to make sure it is cooked through. If not, continue to cook until done.
  • Give it all a gentle stir. Sprinkle with some dried parsley (optional.) Then serve!



Fresh chicken breasts can be used as well.
