Chicken n Dumplins

so. i found this GREAT recipe. from it's a home made chicken n dumplins recipe that you make in the crock pot. it is amazing!!! i altered it a little bit. it needed a few things, but it is great, and it's really easy. it cooks all day and it makes plenty! ben and i LOVE it!!! i love finding new recipes and trying them out. so i thought i would share the love! enjoy.

3-4 FROZEN boneless skinless chicken breast ( this makes more than enough for 2 people)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 14 oz can chicken broth
1 1/2 cans water. ( i just use the chicken broth can after i empty it!!)
2-3 tbsp butter/margarine
chopped onion. ( i just use the chopped onion pieces you can buy in the spice aisle, ben doesn't like onion, so i try not to overdue it) the original recipe calls for 1/2 an onion.
1-2 8oz cans biscuits (depending on how many dumplins you like)
** seasonings. i just use garlic powder, season all, black pepper, salt, oregano. i just sprinkle to taste.

* place frozen chicken breast in crock pot
* pour soup, broth, water, butter, onion on top of chicken
*sprinkle seasonings on top and stir. you can use any combination of seasonings you want. i would recommend the season all.
*cook on LOW 8-9 hours

** you add the biscuits the last 2.5 to 3 hours. make sure you push them down in the soup mixture so they absorb the juices.
** i use 2 cans of biscuits b/c i like extra dumplins. otherwise it seems like too much chicken. **take the biscuits out of the can and pull apart into small pieces before placing them in the crockpot. it will seem like a lot of biscuits to put into the crock pot, but they shrink down.

** you could use thawed chicken but i've found that the chicken is a lot more tender if it starts out frozen. it will just sort of fall apart!! plus, you don't have to wait for it to thaw!!

*** let me know if you try it and like it! i would love to hear about some of your favorite recipes!

Ok, so I am ditzy sometimes when it comes to cooking-do you cook the biscuits first before putting them in the crockpot? Thanks! This sounds yummy and my husband will love it! maxmj at sbcglobal dot net
