  • 4 cans of chicken broth or 2 32oz containers
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1-2 10 count cans of refrigerated biscuits


  • For this size recipe, I use the larger, oval Crockpot. Start by turning the Crockpot on high heat and pour in all 4 cans of the chicken broth.
  • Cut the 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into small bit-size pieces.
  • Put the chicken into the Crockpot and let it cook on high for 2 hours.
  • Once the chicken is done, open the can of biscuits and tear each biscuit into 2 or 3 pieces (these are the dumplings) and add to the Crockpot.
  • The biscuits will float on the top. Once there is a full layer on top, take the back of a large serving spoon and gently push all of the dumplings into the broth. This will coat each dumpling with the broth and keep them from sticking to each other.
  • Cook, covered and on high, for 30 minutes.
  • Take the lid off and stir chicken and dumplings up. Continue to cook for an additional 20 minutes uncovered.
  • Turn the Crockpot off and serve warm.
