Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings & a Giveaway!

Hey friends!

We are getting close to wrapping up our 12 Days of Christmas Event!  Welcome to Day 11!

One of my most used ‘power tools’ in my house is definitely my Crock Pot!  With 5 kiddos and a hubby to feed, I put mine to use often.  ;-)

My family loves when I make chicken & dumplings in the winter.  This recipe is super simple, but tastes like you slaved all day over a stove.  I like my recipes to be just like my projects…. Cheap and easy, but amazing at the same time!

1 lb boneless-skinless chicken breasts

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

2 cans of Chicken Broth

2 Tablespoons of butter

1 teaspoons black pepper

1 teaspoon cumin

1 to 1.5 teaspoons Cavender’s Greek Seasoning (this stuff is the bomb)

1.5 teaspoon parsley

1 16oz can of Grand’s Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits

*You can also add a can of mixed veggies if you want.  My kiddos prefer it without… Of course ;-)

This is my hubby’s favorite crock pot meal.  I love making it around Christmas time when it’s cold outside.  I hope you love it too!

And guess what?!?

Today we will be giving one lucky Shanty reader our very favorite crock pot!

Ash and I LOVE this crock pot, and want to share the love with you!!

      Thank you Audrey.. and yes! This is much easier than the real thing :-)

  • Keeping It Cozy

    This looks delicious. I love chicken and dumplings… I made some this past week but this recipe looks so much easier, especially with the crock pot!

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      Great! Let me know how you like it!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/andy.heberle Andy Heberle

    Awesome, this sounds yummy. Think I’ll go make some oh, that’s right, I don’t have a crock pot to make it in.

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      You need one! Good investment… Promise! :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/summer.mcfarland Summer Walton McFarland

    I usually do everything by scratch, but when I am in a hurry, I put enough water to cover the chicken, plus three extra cups with two packets of county gravy from the gravy section. There’s usually dumplings for less than the cost of biscuits in the frozen food section and you can pop those in thirds and dump. Making it gluten free is a bit different though. ;)

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      You go girl… Sounds like a great version!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/funkyjunkdonna FunkyJunk Donna

    This sounds so delicious! I’ve never made dumplings before but you broke it down so easily!

    And… what. a. giveaway! Swoon…

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      Yes… This is much easier than the original… And yummier in my opinion ;-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/debiz1 Debi Zee

    This sounds wonderful for cold days. I think even my extremely picky husband will eat this! You must get up very early to make this recipe though. Btw, I follow you on Google and fb too. Love your site!

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      Oh you are sweet Debi!! My hubby is hard to really please, but asks for this. I bet yours will love it too ;-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/sharon.mobley.9 Sharon Mobley

    Oh, Im going to have to try this, I have every thing but the greek seasoning. I have Everglades instead, I wonder if that will work.

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      Well that is how I tried the greek seasoning… Just tried it and it was a keeper! Good luck with yours!!

  • Shirley Corwin

    I need a programable crockpot. I use my little one a lot. I’ve made this recipe but you’ve added some interesting variations that I’m going to try. Thanks.

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      That is awesome Shirley! Let me know how you like it!! ;-)

  • Laura Leverette

    Do you have a printer friendly version of this recipe? Can’t wait to try it!

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      Just added the link in the post! ;-)

  • Kimberly Hottenstein

    Sounds delicious. Do you think the greek seasoning found at every grocery store? I’ve never heard of it before.

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      I get mine at Walmart… You can probably find it on amazon too! I haven’t seen it at target. HTH!

  • Danielle Comer

    This is a fav with my husband too. And I’ve made it for friends. It does not disappoint! Side question – I have made your test tube flower vase (love it), and I was just wondering how you girls stored yours. I want to do something a little different for my Christmas centerpiece, but wasn’t quite sure how to store the tes t tubes. Also, did you make anything out of the extra test tube(s)?

    • http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/ Shanty2Chic

      When I was done with mine I used it in a different room. I would suggest wrapping up your tubes in paper to store them away and the base can store easily wherever you can squeeze it! HTH!!

  • Amber

    On an unrelated note, I love your blog and try to read it often, however it takes for….ev…..er to load now. Is it just me? All the other blogs I read don’t take as long.
