I’ve only had Chicken Dumpling Soup a couple times, I typically prefer Chicken Noodle Soup instead and I’ve never made my own Chicken Dumpling until today.  This is kind of a Shortcut recipe for making the dumplings by using Pillsbury Biscuits.  It’s delicious!

Not only is this a shortcut recipe, it’s also a simple slow cooker one too!  If you’ve been reading The Taylor House for long, you know that I LOVE my slow cooker soup recipes.

I was making a new soup every Sunday for my family, trying new things and sharing what we loved.  I’m getting back in the swing of soup recipes, after all, it’s still incredibly cold here in Minnesota!

Step 1 – Place soups, chicken broth and seasonings in your slow cooker

Step 2 – Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and add them into the slow cooker

Step 3 – Cook for 3 hours on low in the slow cooker

Step 4 – Cut the Pillsbury Biscuits into quarters and add them into the slow cooker after the 3 hours and let everything cook on low for another hour.  I ended up adding a small amount more of chicken broth towards the end but you can watch and decide the thickness you want.

If you like Chicken Dumplings this is a great quick and easy option.  Using refrigerator dough cuts out the length of time this recipe takes to make.

We ended up having this during the Super bowl because we had a sick little guy and the whole family loved it.  I’ll make it again for sure!

    Would there be any changes to temperature or cooking times if I double the recipe?

    I’m going to try this for tonight’s dinner. I’m a little concerned that the biscuits won’t be done. I’ve seen in a couple other recipes where people comment and say the biscuits were under cooked in the crock pot. Hoping this turns out great…it’s been a while since I’ve had some good home made chicken and dumplings.

    Sounds like a great recipe! I want to make it very soon. I have a question, does the chicken need to be cooked before putting it in slow-cooker?

    • Sara

      Nope, the slow cooker will do all of the work for you Mellisa! Thanks for stopping by!

    For the condensed soups, do you add the can of water/milk with them, or just the contents of the can?

    • Sara

    This is actually one of our families favorite recipes- we used to make it almost every week. Until my backside started growing 🙂 I had to cut back- I totally went through withdrawals – it’s so good.
