  • Put the boneless chicken, sliced carrots, sliced celery, diced onion, minced garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, and bay leaves into an 8-quart crock pot.
  • Place the lid on the crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours, 5-6 on low or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly.
  • Remove the chicken breasts from the crock pot and place them in a bowl. Use two forks to shred the meat.
  • Return shredded chicken to the crock pot and stir.
  • Cut the canned biscuits into cubes or strips. Drop the canned biscuit pieces into the crock pot and stir.
  • Place the lid back on and cook for about an hour or until the biscuits are cooked through the center. It will take about 30-60 minutes depending on how many biscuits you used.
  • As the canned biscuits cook the chicken and dumplings will thicken and make a rich and creamy dumpling gravy that is very creamy.


Recipe Expert Tips

  • If using bone-in chicken you will need to strain the broth after the chicken has cooked to remove any bones that may have fallen into the chicken broth as the chicken cooked.
  • Canned biscuits: Canned biscuits are used and the preferred type of biscuit.
