Classic Comfort Chicken and Dumpling Soup


This Comfort Classic Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings recipe is a TX Foodie favorite.  It’s the ultimate comfort food dinner and is super easy to make!  Let’s face it; chicken for dinner is always a winner!

When I talk to people they often times shy away from making this dish because they think they need to make homemade dumplings. Thats not correct, I use biscuit doe from the grocery store and it tastes fantastic. Now don’t get me wrong if you can make homemade dumplings then go for it it will be even more amazing!

  • 1 1/22 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 10 canned regular size, buttermilk biscuits


  1. Place chicken in the bottom of slow cooker, along with chopped onion and 2 TB butter. Sprinkle with dried parsley, seasoning salt, poultry seasoning, and garlic powder.
  2. Add chicken broth and cream of chicken soup to crockpot, and stir all ingredients to combine. Place lid on top and cook over low heat for 6-8 hours, or high heat for 4-5 hours.
  3. After cooking for at least 6 hours on low, or 4 hours on high, remove lid and stir mixture with a spoon and take chicken out and cut it into chunks and add back to the crockpot.
  4. Chop the biscuits into quarters and add to the crockpot. Push biscuit dough down into the soup so that they will absorb the gravy as they cook.
  5. Replace the lid and continue cooking for 1 more hour over high heat until biscuits are cooked through and begin to turn golden brown. Enjoy!
