How to make Easy Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Step 1: In the bottom of a slow cooker, place the chicken and top with chopped onions and 2 tbsp butter. Sprinkle the chicken with dried parsley, seasoning salt, poultry seasoning, and garlic powder.

Step 2: Pour in the chicken broth and cream of mushroom soup. Stir well. Cover and set to cook for 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
