Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings For Dinner

In the mood for something that is comforting and also delicious? This Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings recipe is great for anytime! 

You could be living your best life, but at the end of the day comfort food is all we need. I love making Chicken and Dumplings, but making them in the crockpot is the best thing ever. Get out your crockpot this weekend and make this savory dish. 

Ingredients Needed for Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings 

Simple ingredients are all you need to make this dish. What do you need to make this dish? Chicken breasts, onions, kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, biscuits, and frozen peas and carrots are all the ingredients you will need. 

This sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? After a long day, sometimes you just want to eat a scrumptious meal that has been cooking in the crockpot all day. I enjoy eating this meal with a loaf of homemade bread or a pack of crackers. These homemade Hawaiian Rolls are so good too!

How to Store Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

Once you make this delicious meal, you may be wondering how you can store it. The simplest way to store it is to get a big airtight container. Place the chicken and dumplings inside of the container and place in the fridge. 

Make sure the container is fridge or freezer friendly. 

Allow the food to cool down before you place it in the fridge or freezer. 

Put the food in individual serving containers to make reheating even easier. 

You can freeze this meal for up to 3 – 4 months as long as it’s in a freezer safe container. This is an excellent option when you want to enjoy this meal later without having to cook it again.

Yield: 8-10 servings

Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings For Dinner

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes


  • 1⁄2 onion, diced
  • 2-3 chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
  • 1 can instant biscuits
  • 1 (16 oz) bag of frozen peas and carrots


  1. Add onion, chicken breasts, salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasonings, chicken broth and cream of chicken soup to the crockpot. 
  2. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
    Using a fork, shred the chicken by moving your fork around in a circular motion. 
  3. Add frozen peas and carrots and stir. 
  4. Chop biscuits up and layer across the top. 
  5. Cook on HIGH another 2 hours. 
  6. Serve warm and enjoy 


If you over cook during the second half, the biscuits can begin to brown or burn against the side of the crock pot. 

All crock pots/slower cookers do not heat the same. If at the 4 hour mark you need to add more liquid, do so, to avoid burning later.
