Easy chicken and dumplings crockpot {my mom}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

We haven’t shared a lot of food posts here in our blog in the past but between me, my mom and gram, there is lots of cooking going on around here. Last weekend my mom made an easy chicken and dumplings recipe in the crockpot that took all of 10 minutes to prepare.

Many of you have emailed in the past questions about how we handle our dinners and who cooks what and when. Crockpot dinners are very popular in our home as they are easy, fast and delicious. My mom many times will prepare a crockpot full of something the night before and then add the dish to the crockpot in the morning before she heads to work.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings Recipe


Easy Chicken and Dumplings in the crockpot:


5 chicken breasts cut in pieces

1 cup white wine (we used pinot grigio)

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 box chicken broth (32 ounce)

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 stick of butter (sliced)

Salt, pepper and italian seasoning

Carrots, diced potatoes, mushrooms and diced turnip

Bisquick or baking mix for dumplings


Add your wine, garlic, chicken broth and butter to the crockpot.

Add all of your vegetables and place cut up chicken on top of the vegetables.

Mix creamed soup and 1 cup of water and pour over ingredients in your crockpot.

Cover and cook on low heat for 5 hours.

The last 30 minutes, add your dumpling mix (follow directions on bisquick box) by dropping spoonfuls of mix in the crock pot. You may need to add more chicken broth as it cooks if you like more of a broth.

Mom’s tip: To ensure your dumplings cook thoroughly and are not gooey, turn the crockpot up to high heat with 45 minutes left to bring to a boil. Then add your dumplings and leave them covered for 10 minutes on high heat. After 10 minutes, turn heat to low and remove the cover partially to allow steam to escape. You will need to turn you dumplings over with a spoon at this point to cook the underneath side. Season dumplings with italian seasoning once they are done.

So there you go, my mom’s first post on the blog with her  easy chicken and dumpling crockpot recipe. You can add any vegetables you want, we just happened to have cut up turnip and sliced mushrooms in the fridge so she added those along with the traditional potatoes and carrots. There are no rules in our house when it comes to cooking! 🙂 Be sure to check out our latest chicken and mushroom recipe!

  1. Is there a substitute for the white wine that I could use?

    1. I know some have used apple juice but I have not. So not sure how it would taste. You can omit the wine, we just add it for flavor. You could always add a little sugar to sweeten it as well. The other thing my mom has done is add one or two chicken bouillon cubes for flavor. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. yummy, yum, yum, yum! Tell your mom I’m headed up that way for dinner, Jess! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for sharing this great recipe!


  3. Sounds delish! This is my all time favorite meal! My recipe varies a bit but Chicken n’ dumplings is comfort food at its best!

  4. Love the new addition of recipes to your blog….especially easy/quick ones! The chicken & dumplings recipe in a crockpot is one I will try, (which says a lot as I’m not much of a chef & am reluctant to try cooking new things).

  5. I only have one can of cream of chicken but I do have everything else. I have a can of roasted garlic cream of mushroom. Thoughts on using that or another substitute? We are in the middle of a snow storm and I can’t make it to the store!!!

    1. Use any creamed soup! I bet it will be delicious if you mix the garlic one and the cream of chicken. There are no rules when you crockpot cook ๐Ÿ™‚ At least in our house ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I LOVE chicken and dumplings! It’s been years since I’ve had it though because my husband isn’t a fan. Maybe I’ll make it anyway… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Mine turned out like soup, really liquidy I was hoping it would be thick like the photo! Did I miss a step?

    1. Hmmm I am not sure why it would turn out that way? Ours is a tiny bit liquidy but it thickens up if you let the crock pot sit for about 30 minutes once it’s done. The dumplings usually soak up any kind of liquid that is left.

      1. Yes I spoke to soon! I didn’t add the dumplings yet and it thickened up really well:) The only problem was I made my dumplings way too big and it took awhile for them to cook but otherwise really good!

  8. Can I use the pillsbury biscuits instead of bisquick?

    1. I have never tried that but I bet they would be good. I love those type of biscuits!

  9. I will use biscuits which i have not added yet but is this suppose to have a watery consistency before I add the biscuits?

  10. I can’t wait to make this recipe once our weather gets a little cooler. I’m so glad to see you all use Bisquick mix & make the doughy kind of dumplings by spoon. That’s how my mom & both Grammies always made dumplings.

    When I first got married & moved to Houston, TX, I was not only a new bride but a new cook too. One evening the new hubby wanted to go out (Frankly I think he’d reached his limit with my cooking inability!) to what everyone said was one of the best places in town for old-fashioned, home cooking. I was never so disappointed as when they brought my order of chicken & dumplings to our table & the “dumplings” were big, wide, thick, hand-rolled noodles instead of fluffy, doughy mounds! I’ve since learned how to cook but this recipe for a crock pot is one I haven’t tried. ..yet. Thanks!

    1. I love dumplings and my mom and gram always made them as well growing up. Yummy memories ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Heather Bringas says:

    At anytime do I stir everything together? Or leave veggies on bottom chicken then soup on top? Making it now ๐Ÿ™‚ smells delish already!!

  12. How many potatoes and carrots are called for? Want to make this tonight!

    1. I use a large bag of carrots and as many potatoes as I can fit around the chicken (stuff them in!) . Enjoy!!!

      1. Great! Just got back from the grocery store now! Thanks!

  13. Is there a way to substitute the cream of chicken soup?We don’t care for that one.

    1. Any creamed soup will work ๐Ÿ™‚ I have used cream of mushroom and it’s yummy

  14. Do you put cooked or uncooked chicken into the crockpot?
