Chicken & Dumplings

It snowed, again, here yesterday.  As I am writing this, it is still snowing and is supposed to until about 3am.  Ugghh!  I am so sick of the cold and the snow!  I am not a winter girl.  I love all other seasons, but winter, winter is not my friend.

However, I do happen to love a nice warm and hearty meal on a snowy night.

I realize that a chicken and dumpling recipe is pretty common, but I just couldn't help sharing this with you all.  It is a very simple recipe with tons of taste.  If you are looking for a way to spice up your personal recipe or you are in need of a simple chicken and dumpling recipe because, lets face it, those from-scratch dumplings can be intimidating, this is a great one for you, too!

I originally mentioned this recipe in My Top 10 Slow Cooker Recipes post.  Since September, I have been fine-tuning this recipe in hopes to one day get it on the blog.  That day has come!  I didn't tweak the original recipe much, but I did substitute something and add a couple of ingredients.

Chicken & Dumplings

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
2 cans Cream of Chicken soup
2 tbsp. butter
Minced Onions
1 can of biscuits

Grease your slow cooker and place the chicken breasts in the bottom.  Salt and pepper the chicken to your liking. Cover the chicken with the soup, butter, and  3-5 generous shakes of minced onion.  Cover everything with water.  Set crock pot on high, cover, and let it go for 5-6* hours.  

A half an hour before serving, take your biscuits and break them into pieces of four.  Pour some flour in a bowl, coat the biscuits with flour, and place them in the slower cooker.  Add more salt and pepper at this point.  Re-cover and cook for another 30 minutes, stirring once.

At the end of 30 minutes, serve and eat to your hearts content!

*This time may vary.  I cooked mine for 5 hours before putting the biscuits in, getting a full cooking time of 5 1/2 hours.  I have a crock pot that is a year old, so it still cooks fairly quickly.
