How to make Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Step 1: In a slow cooker, add in the chicken, carrots, onions, thyme, and black pepper.

Step 2: Add and stir the cream of chicken soup, cream of celery soup, chicken broth, and water.

Step 3: Cook for about 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

Step 4: Stir in the peas.

Step 5: Divide the biscuits into quarters and even arrange them on top of the sauce.

Step 6: Sprinkle over some thyme and pepper.

Step 7: Place the lid and cook for about 45 minutes on high. Make sure to not open the lid. The dumplings are done when they are no longer shiny.


1. Cook the dumplings for about 1.5 hours if the slow cooker switched to warm after cooking for some time so the slow cooker gets back up to temperature.

2. If using a rotisserie chicken (white or dark meat), diced the chicken first and use 3 cups for this recipe.

3. In place of canned biscuits, you can use crescent dough instead. Just cut it into small pieces. Or use flour tortillas cut into small squares and cook on high for 20 minutes.

4. Store any leftover in freezer Ziploc bags or plastic Tupperware and freeze for up to 3 months.

5. When serving, thaw the frozen chicken and dumplings in the fridge for 24 hours and reheat on the stovetop or microwave.
