Enjoy a delicious pot of Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings, a warm, comfort meal!
Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings is a classic, warm meal that is perfect to put on in the afternoon and have ready for dinner. This recipe only takes about 4 1/2 hours, so it is not a set and forget it all day recipe, be sure to keep that in mind.
Can you put raw chicken in the crockpot?
Raw chicken is okay to put in the crockpot as long as you fully cook it. In the case of Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings, it will be cooked after about 3 hours. It needs to have an internal temperature of at least 165*F to be fully considered done.
If you prefer, you can sear the outsides of the chicken first if you would like to brown it up a bit, otherwise, you can put it in raw.
Does this recipe use Canned Biscuits?
This recipe does use canned biscuits for the dumplings, it’s a more in-depth version of this version of Chicken and Dumplings. It uses more flavors and vegetables to really give it a boost.
The biscuits will not taste like fully cooked biscuits they will be more doughy like a dumpling, which is exactly what you are going for with this recipe.
Tips for Making Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings:
The biscuits will be rolled and cut to make smaller bites into dumplings. If this sits for too long more of the liquid will soak into the ingredients and dumplings, if this happens add a bit more chicken broth to thin it out some before serving.
This recipe is best served warm right out of the crockpot.
The biscuits in my crockpot are always cooked wonderfully right at about an hour, if you want yours cooked a little bit longer, just leave them in the crockpot for about 15 extra minutes.
