“Chicken & Dumplings”

  

Description from Vee aka Dream Chickie: One of my favorite recipes ~ Chicken & Dumplings with Broccoli & Carrots. (this is comfort food!)

RECIPE
"4 Servings"

~2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (cut into strips, season with garlic salt)
~1 tablespoon butter
~1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup (I use Campbell's)
~1/2 onion, finely diced (or chopped onion seasoning)
~1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces (Pillsberry roll of 8 biscuits "use 4 biscuits in the recipe, refrigerate the rest")

(Spray slow cooker with Pam cooking spray)

1. Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough chicken broth to cover (I use Country Inn chicken broth)

2. Cover and cook 3 hours on High. After 2 hours add your torn pieces of biscuit dough (seasoned with garlic salt) in the slow cooker and cook for the last hour or until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

3. When it is all done, I turn off my crockpot and let the chicken and dumplings sit in the crockpot for about 45 mins to an hour to let the broth thicken more into a gravy.

4. I cook my brocolli and carrots on the stove not in the crockpot.

5. Serve and enjoy!

NOTE: Season your way. I just like garlic salt or garlic powder in mine. :)

    New on the boards here but just wanted to say I love this combination of color and texture. Yum!

  9. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Vee, it’s hot and steamy today (again), but tolerable. Glad to hear you’re not drowning in raindrops again! LOL

    Hmmmmmmm Wonder how long it would take me to drive to your house for dinner?!?!?! Maybe I’d better fly…… ;-)

    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    I’ll race you Chicky LE! Haven’t had C&D in years – Now I want some soooo bad! Very hungry-making pick Vee!!! Hey, share your c&d recipe with us!!! Pleasssse…. :)

  11. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hey, that’s a great idea, Shannon! No, not the race, Silly Chick! Sharing her recipe with us, of course, is what I meant!!! In addition to the Design Gallery, we could have a Recipe Box here on LB….. was that the sound of Steve pulling all his hair out at once? ROTFLOL

  12. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Seriously, Vee, would you share your recipe with us? It does sound wonderful! :D

  13. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    honestly! me too! – although this northern girl doesn’t know a thing about dumplin makin – you girls will have to explain. I love em though!

  14. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s funny, Smoky Rose! I don’t know how to make them either — guess I thought they would magically appear with the recipe! LOL ;-)

  15. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    ya know, why can’t we go buy a bag of em, like egg noodles? they make a cream of chix and dumplings soup at work that is….. oh my gosh, first of all, a day supply of calories, but Delish! capital D!
    I’d love to know how to make the soup, the meal, either, both – Yum

  16. Chicky Chicky Blueroze
    Chicky Chicky Blueroze says:

    nah Smoky Rose, theyre so much better when theyre homemade from scratch. Especially if they’re egg dumplings. Then they get all chewy. Yum.

    Chicky LE: You’re so funny. Mold growing on them, made me crack up. LOL By they way, don’t know if youve read your inbox yet today but I replied to your last message to me last night.

  17. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    maybe there’s a recipe on the bisquick box or something?…..
    Vee! your a Philly girl? I’m in Philly – Philly-ish… small world! cool!

  18. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hey, Mary, wouldn’t that be great if we could just go to the store and buy a big bag o’ dumplings?!?!?! LOL Guess it wouldn’t be the same, but…..

    Blueroze, I did get your reply — thanks! I’ll write more later! :D

  19. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I ‘might’ be able to handle bisquick…as long as it’s not too complicated! ;) how ’bout frozen bag o’ dumplings?! they may be better than dried out ones? gotta get me some of these dumplings!

  20. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Bisquick might be do-able for me, too, Mary!!! LOL Frozen ones might be less dry than a bag off of the shelf — good point! We are SO wanting some of those dumplings now!!!

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Do you realize, Mary, that it would be quicker for you to find & get to Vee’s house to eat her dumplings than to learn to make your own dumplings? ROTFLOL ;-)

  22. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m half Polish, and frozen pierogies work for me…… so….. gotta get to the Giant store and see what I can see. Not any more tonight, but it’s on the list of things to do! I’ll let you know what I find.

  23. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    hello! I’m waiting for the invite! Vee?! What do ya say? I can bring something!

  24. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    beads! I can bring beads! what color wine goes with beads?

  25. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Mary, I believe (according to Emily Post and Miss Manners) that any color wine is perfectly acceptable with beads. :D As a matter of fact, the more wine with beads, the better! ;-)

  26. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    awesome! thank you! Vee? am I sweetening the deal any? ;)

    Thank you, Riverlily!! Lynn, you are more than welcome to come by for dinner and a little beading! Rose, blueroze, Shannon, everyone… lol you are invited too! Sorry I was away from the computer watching a movie. :D

    Lynn, I’m glad the weather is nice now too, even though I love the rain, raining like 5 days straigh is a bit much even for me lol.

    But yeah, I can share my recipe. I wonder if I should type it up here, maybe under the pick as part of the description, hmmmmm… I will do that sometime tomorrow. It’s an easy recipe I got it online and doctored it up a bit. You guys know how it is with recipes!

    Hey guys, I added the chicken and dumplings recipe to the description under my pick. Also, here is the site I got the recipe from and altered it a bit. It has a conversion calculator for the servings. But you still have to adjust the cooking time.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thanks, Vee! This sounds delicious and do-able. My favorite step is the last one — Serve and enjoy! :D I wonder if Shannon showed up tonight with fork in hand!!! LOL

    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    Thanks Lynn! You are welcome! Glad you liked the last step, I thought you would! :D

    Oh, it is a very easy recipe. Easy and deliscious! That’s what I love about it.

    No, Shannon didn’t show up with her big fork in hand LOL. I was looking for her just incase! LOL

    Oh, I’m getting HUNGRY!!!! Didn’t have any supper. Way too busy beading! Great pick and thanks for the recipe!

  42. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Vee, maybe Shannon got lost and is just wandering around Philly, big fork in one hand, beads in the other, looking for your home!!! LOL :D

  43. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Lynn, you just crack me up with all your comments. I am beginning to think that I get on this computer just so I can have my laughs for the day. Tee Hee. Thanks for the laughs, we all need them now and again.

  44. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    We sure do!!! Glad I could be of assistance! ;-)

  45. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    I can just picture Shannon with that big fork. LOL Wish I had your sense of humour.

  46. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I’ve been told it’s a bit on the wacky side. LOL

    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    Thanks Debra! You are welcome! :)

    LOL Lynn, I hope Shannon isn’t lost and wondering around Philly.

    3K, I can imagine Shannon with her big fork too! lol

    I agree, Lynn does have a great sense of humor and I look forward to reading her posts too! :D

    Please keep me posted on when you guys try the recipe!

  48. No Photo
    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    Oh and one more addition… Garlic salt is optional, garlic powder or whatever you prefer taste wise will work as well. You know, kinda make it your own like I did. ;)

  49. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Oh, great — NOW you tell us. LOL Actually, I haven’t tried the recipe yet. Still hoping to make it over to your house, Vee, for dinner! ;-)

    BTW, has Shannon showed up yet? ROTFLOL

  50. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    woo hoo! thank you Vee!
    Pillsbury I can handle!!!!! right up my alley!
    How ’bout it, Lynn?! :)

  51. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Yes! I was so afraid the recipe would involve actual biscuits with kneading, pounding, raising, rolling, cutting — those sound like biscuit terms, don’t they, Mary? LOL

  52. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Actually, my fave biscuit term is “eating”!!! LOL

  53. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    honestly! just the measuring of flour makes a disaster of my kitchen! I assume those are biscuit terms….I’m really not familiar…I can assure you that I have never made a biscuit in my life! I’m not even sure why I own flour….

  54. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Mary, you have me ROTFLOL with your “flour” comment!!! :D

  55. CAS
    CAS says:

    Mare, you own flour so that you can creativly dust some on your face, hands, apron, and pass off store-bought baked goods as homemade. The whole “slavin’ over the stove” thing. :P

  56. No Photo
    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    LOL Lynn, I’m sorry lol. You know how you think of things later on! ;) Cause you know everyone’s salt intake level is different. Ya know?

    Oh, Rose and lynn, I can’t do homemade dough either. That is wayyy too much work for me. lol Oh and Pillsbury, that’s how you spell it! Thanks Rose! lol I think I spelled it Pillsberry lol. You guys knew what I meant. :D

    Nope Lynn Shannon has not shown up yet. ROFL has anyone seen her lately? Shannon, oh Shannon…. youwhoooo lol

  57. No Photo
    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    CAS, I like that idea! LOL

  58. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Christine, what an excellent idea!!! :D

    I had a friend who once told me that when she cleaned her home, she would light a candle in each room when she was done. I asked her why not just light the candles and skip the cleaning? ROTFLOL ;-)

  59. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Vee, I didn’t even notice the “Pillsberry” spelling before — cute!

  60. CAS
    CAS says:

    And I like the sound of that Chicken n’ Dumplings … mmmm, mmmmm (insert sound of lip-smacking here) … now I’m going to have to find where Mom hides her Crock pot … :)

  61. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Certain sounds are just hard to type, aren’t they, Chicky Babe? LOL ;-)

    Maybe AquaKitty can help you search for that hidden Crock Pot! :D

  62. No Photo
    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    Thanks Lynn, you are too kind! I thought the spelling looked funny but I just kept right on typing anyway! I was on a mission to get that recipe to you guys as fast as possible! LOL

    Let us know if you find that crockpot CAS. :)

  63. CAS
    CAS says:

    Mom says we have a Crock pot, but I’ve never, ever seen her use it … I’m not sure if there really is one … (sigh) … I just may need AquaKitty’s services … I’m good at finding beads, but Crock pots … not so much … Do I pay AquaKitty in beads?

  64. No Photo
    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    Wow CAS, interesting! lol I wonder if there ever was a crockpot too. Can we get AquaKitty to investigate this? Or does it have to be only beads? LOL

  65. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    HEY EVERYBODYYYYYY!!!!! I gotta learn to read a map!! Here I am, big fork in one hand, nappie around my neck, clutching a strand of beads for my hostess wandering the mean streets of Philly – dodging cabs, talking my way out of gang initiations while asking if anyone knows where Vee lives – have they smelled anything like chicken and dumplings cooking? What strange looks I’ve gotten – And it’s possible I’m being followed by some guys with big spoons! AquaKitty – help a beader out!!!!!!

    POF Chick Nina says:

    Oh Chickies this is soo funny! We happened to stop at a Cracker Barrel restaurant on our way home from vacation last week. Guess what I ordered YUP! Chicken And Dumplings! It was sooo good. I am going to try the recipe Vee gave us. Thank you for the laughs.

  67. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Shannon, come on up to my house, we’ll go to Vee’s together. Can’t have a sweet southern girl traversing the streets of Philly alone….(especially with a napkin tucked into your collar, girl, you gotta take that out, this is Philly, that stuff don’t fly…. ;)

  68. CAS
    CAS says:

    Now, Shannon, if you told people you were looking for Philly Cheese Steak …. LOL

    My big fork got too heavy – had to rest for a minute then I’m on my way!

  72. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    No, Chadds Ford is too far south, come on up to the 215 area code, Shannon. They do have a nice winery there though…. so, maybe pick a little somethin, somethin up?!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Chicky Babe, I checked with AqK and he will take on your case of the missing crock pot pro bono. :D

  77. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Vee – all kiddin’ aside – this recipe is great – Think I’ll make tomorrow night! But if it’s ok, I’ll use a regular sized fork – that other one is just too heavy!!
    All you guys just make me laugh so hard – I could almost forego the antidepressant!!!

    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    ROFL Shannon!!!! No, that’s not my place. I’m in an apartment building. I’m sorry you almost got run down by some cabs, you are lucky the Septa bus didnt run you down as well!! lol But I’m glad you still have your big fork and someone didnt try to steal it from you wonderin the mean streets of Philly! ROFL…

    Shunk Woman, cool that you had some chicken and dumplings already! And that you wanna try the recipe! :)

    Shannon, thanks! hey is that a real restaurant?? The big fork place?

    I am still cracking up over here from all the funny comments from you, Lynn, CAS, Rose, Luv2bead, 3K… etc… I am gonna need some stitches soon! ROFL

    Lynn, I will try to make a lot in my little crockpot. lol

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Ok, so how many of you chicken and dumpling crazed chicks have had to make this dish now? Just got to check in and was ROFLOL over this conversation. :-)
    Btw. Love the Pick, and there really has been a dumpling recipe on the Bisquick box before. It’s especially good to add just a pinch of poultry seasoning to the batter. ;)

  80. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Sorry to have missed out, but we had company for a few days. I’m baaaack!!! ;)

  81. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    back to the bisquick. I’ve got family coming over on Sun…. Harriet – this place’ll look like a disaster if I pull out bisquick and a measuring cup!

  82. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I know what you mean…I seem to be constitutionally incapable of measuring flour, or flour type stuff, without spilling it. LOL
    Maybe that’s why I used grilled chicken breasts and served my company Chicken Fajitas with home-made guacamole instead. :-)
    Hey, if I’ve got flour tortillas, or even corn tortillas, and some good cheese, I have half the work already done. ;)

  83. No Photo
    Vee aka Dream Chickie says:

    Hey Harriet! Thank you! Oh my, the Chicken Fajitas sound really good. :D

    I don’t believe this convo is over? lol I think a few of the ladies here may try it out and I’m curious to hear how they liked it.

    Oh boy, Rose got the bisquick out again! lol or was it the flour?? LOL

    I’m still laughing over here! :D

  84. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Harriet, those fajitas sound really good! I like the way you think regarding the prep, too! :D

    Vee, these convos are never over! LOL Sometimes it may appear that way and then voila! it starts up again! ;-)

  85. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    These convos continue and continue and continue especially if Lynn is handy LMBO

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Good morning, Sunshine!!! Hi, Harriet! We are Eastern time and we observe DST, so whatever the time is posted above, that is what time it is here in Kokomo, IN. :D

  89. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    We do DST here, too. I wrote on our blog a while, and also replied to your message in the Garden. I’m going to have to get busy soon, but wanted to re-connect with you. I’ve been missing my Chicky friends! :-)

  94. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Vee, I am bad about not going to bed on time, too. ;)
    Last nite, I left the computer, so as not to disturb the Hubby (he goes to sleep early), and then went and read until 11:30. Sure makes morning feel like it comes early when I do that. :-)
