my dumpling

So I've been a little adventurous in the kitchen lately. You can actually tell from my very high grocery bill! I really just want to learn how to make anything and everything that I find delicious. If you know me that means almost everything! Last week, I thought I would break out the crock pot and venture out of my "kitchen comfort zone" and make chicken and dumplings. It was DELISH! The only thing I would do different next time is make more dumplings. Down below is the recipe that is enough for 8 servings. Enjoy!

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 onion, finely diced
2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
chicken stock

1. Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough chicken stock to cover. Season with the salt and pepper.

2. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

* Since my crock pot is a fast cooker [weird right?] I only cooked my chicken on high for about 2 1/2 hours. I then took the chicken out, cut it into pieces and set it aside. Then I added the biscuit pieces in the crock pot and cooked those on high for about 1 hour. When the dumplings were done I poured the chicken back in, mixed it all together, and voila! If you don't know how your crock pot cooks, I would check it every couple hours so you don't over cook the chicken breast!
