In my mind, there really is nothing more comforting than a big bowl of chicken and dumplings. Honestly, any version of chicken and dumplings is totally fine with me. I love it all. I love the old-fashioned flat dumplings in a thick broth, I love the big, fluffy dumpling balls in a thinner broth and I love the dumplings made with canned biscuits that are thick and heavy in a super thick broth. It is all good to me!
Why not in a crock pot?
I always have folks ask me for a good crock pot version of chicken and dumplings. I actually had never really thought about it because we always just made them on a stove top. So I set about figuring the best way to do this. And it worked out great because I was able to use frozen chicken breasts (which are much cheaper than their fresh counterparts – but still just as yummy) and they have time to get infused with amazing flavor. I decided I wanted to have a thicker broth so I used a quick trick with canned biscuits to make that happen. We really, really loved this version!
