Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
Fall is the time to start thinking about those hearty and delicious comfort foods that we and our families love. Today, I'm sharing an easy-to-make Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings recipe and I'm joined by some of my blogger friends who are also sharing their recipes for an even Dozen Comfort Food Recipes. My recipe follows and links to all of the other delicious recipes are below that.
When I was growing up and my Mom would ask what I would like for my birthday dinner I almost always picked her chicken and dumplings. This recipe is not my Mother's (sadly, I don't have hers) but it's a pretty close second and a recipe that everyone in my family loves.
Slow Cooker // Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
4 carrots, peeled and cut into ½ inch slices
3 large Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
4 large skinned and boned chicken breasts
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 cup chicken broth or water (I chose the low-sodium option)
2 - 10 ¾ ounce cans of cream of chicken soup
Freshly ground pepper
1 small package of frozen peas
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
2 cups all-purpose
⅔ cup half-and-half or milk
Spray a 6-qt. slow cooker with cooking spray.
Place carrots and potatoes into the bottom of the slow cooker.
Heat a skillet with 1 tbsp. oil. Salt and pepper each side of the chicken breasts and brown in skillet approximately 2 minutes on each side in batches (2 at a time).
Place chicken on top of potatoes and carrots in crockpot.
Whisk together broth and chicken soup.
Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.
Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.
Remove lid and gently break up chicken into bit-size pieces.
Stir in peas and eggs.
Drop by spoonfuls onto chicken mixture and cook on high for an additional 1 hour (until dumplings are cooked through).

OH holy night. My son would chow down on this! He loves chix and dumplins! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Pinning now!
Thank you, Beth! My boys like it too - something about hearty appeals to them! Boys 🙂
this looks so good and brings back great memories of when my mom made it. I'll have to try this, thank you! XO Pinned
Thank you so much, Kristin! It does seem to be a childhood memory food 🙂
These look so good I almost put my comment in the "name" box, lol. What a special story and recipe. I love hearing the history behind a recipe!!! Those dumplings look like mountains I want to climb. 🙂
You made me chuckle about the name box! When I saw your Dad's chicken and dumplings I almost cried- he makes it the same way my Mom did (it must be a Polish thing).
Oh my gosh this looks so amazing! I'll be over in 5... (I wish). Pinned!
I wish you could come over that quickly, Malia! We would have such a great time. *hugs*
Mary Beth I adore chicken and dumplings. I was just telling my oldest daughter that we needed to make some soon... it's definitely the perfect comfort food!
Chicken and dumplings is one of my favorites as well, Maryann!
Yum! I love chicken and dumplings, could eat it anytime. This looks so good. I've never had chicken and dumplings with potatoes, I would have to leave the peas out. Pinning to try sometime. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for stopping by, Linda! You can leave out or add anything you like - that's why I love recipes like this - I usually just use what I have on hand.
Oh my gosh! I am just drooling over your chicken and dumplings! I so wish I could make these, but hubby is allergic to chicken! Yes, I know. It's a very weird allergy. So I have to get my chicken fix when I eat out! Don't be surprised if I show up at your house!
You can come over absolutely any time, Jane! I'll even make something for your husband so you both can come over for a visit.
I just had a version of this last night for dinner! We've never tried a crockpot to make ours but this actually looks a lot easier!
It was really easy and so good 😉
Okay - now I'm soooo hungry lol!! This looks so delish Mary Beth! My guys will love this recipe! Pinned!
Thank you so much, Heather! Your apple cake recipe made me drool 😉
Thanks so much for the recipe - I have been looking for more things to do in our crockpot!
I'm glad you like it, Jenn! My crockpot is one of my best buddies 🙂
I never knew chicken and dumplings could be so easy. Guess what I am making this week? Thanks so much for sharing. My family will love this.
It is super easy, Meegan, and thanks for stopping by!
