Recipe of the Week: Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

This is a recipe that is adapted from a recipe I found online.  Another great comfort food!

Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
(Yes that is a "Hello Kitty" bowl!)
2 chicken breasts, cut up
1 T butter
1 T minced onion
1/2 T curry powder
1 bay leaf
2 cups chicken broth
1 cans cream of chicken
1 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup sour cream
1 can potatoes, diced
1 tubes refrigerated biscuit dough
Put all but last three ingredients in crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours. Remove bay leaf and add potatoes and sour cream and stir well.  Squash the biscuits a little and cut into quarters. Lay on top of stuff in crockpot. Replace the lid and cook for one more hour. Do not lift the lid until done!




  1. This sounds good!! I have always wanted to make chicken and dumplings, but all the recipes I've ever seen have really intimidated me for some reason. I'm going to have to just break down and try this someday!

  2. This sounds great! I haven't heard of cans of potatoes, though? Am I missing something? Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  3. Ponder- This one's really easy. You should try it!

    Jackie- Living in Idaho, it never occured to me that other people might not have heard of canned potatoes. I don't know how common they are in other places. Try near the other canned veggies in your grocery store. Or, you could use fresh ones and just add them at the beginning of the cooking time. I usually bottle my own 'cause we just have so darn many of them...
