Healthy Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

Healthy Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

20 oz chicken breast (about 3 large breasts)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10.75 oz) can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
1 (10.75 oz) can 98% fat free cream of celery n mushroom soup
2 c chicken broth- 99% fat free, reduced sodium
 4 canned buttermilk biscuits
Optional Seasonings: pepper, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, parsley

  1. Remove visible fat from chicken breasts and place in crock pot.  Sprinkle with pepper, garlic powder and poultry seasoning.  Add onions, soups and broth.  Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8.
  2.  At this point the chicken is super tender so you can just use your fork to break the breasts up into smaller pieces or you can remove them and shred them.  I like to leave them in decent sized chunks because they will break up more whenever your stir them.
  3. Flatten biscuits with your fingers and cut them into small strips.  I used the smaller "junior" sized biscuits and cut them into 8 pieces.  Drop biscuit pieces into broth and continue to cook on high for 20-30 more minutes or until cooked through.  Sprinkle individual servings with parsley if desired.
