Easy Chicken and Dumplings
It’s Fall, Yall! Time to bust back out the crock pot and Pinterest all the recipes! One of my go-to meals for the season is this easy, crock pot Chicken and Dumplings. Hello, beautiful pillows of biscuit dough covered in a creamy sauce. Where have you been all summer? Right?! I love to use this recipe for a family get together or for when you need to run a meal over to a loved one who is a bit under the weather.
This recipe makes enough for 4-6 people and is perfect for picky eaters. I didn’t say it was “healthy” or easy on the waistline, but I will say that it is worth the calories!
Prep Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 5 hours
You will need:
4 chicken breasts
2 ½ cups of chicken broth
