Stephanie cooks: Chicken and dumplings

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

I cooked.

It's a miracle.

You may wonder why I haven't posted any "Stephanie cooks" lately.  Well, that's simply because I haven't cooked.  I'm completely serious.  I can't even remember the last time I cooked an actual meal.

I figured the best way to ease myself back into regular cooking would be with my crock pot.  Yesterday was the inaugural meal and it was a huge hit!  So huge that I have meal #2 in the crock pot right now.

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

What you need:
  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1 onion, diced (I only used half an onion)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 4 refrigerator biscuits

How you make it:
  1. Place chicken in crock pot.
  2. Add butter, soups, onion and parsley.
  3. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
  4. Once cooking time has elapsed, take a fork and shred the chicken.
  5. Cut the biscuits into pieces and add to crock pot.
  6. Continue to cook for 30-45 minutes, or until biscuits are cooked through.

This was so good and so easy!  Joey took one bite and about fell out of his chair it was so good!

When I was typing the recipe just now, I realized that I only added 1 can of cream of chicken soup.  About halfway through the cooking I started to think that it wasn't soupy enough, so I added another can of chicken broth.  Oops!  I suppose it would have been fine if I had added the correct amount of soup in the first place.

Also, I only used half of an onion.  Even with that, I was worried that it would be to oniony but it turned out great!

Yay for crock pot meals!

So easy and looks so delish! I may have to whip this up tomorrow!
(I always cook from scratch and usually only use 1/2 the amount of onion required too.) :-)

I made this once and it is delicious; especially since I'm not a big cook anyway. It looks yummy, and makes me want to cook it again!

let's get acquainted

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
