    I will differently try this. My grandmother bless her died many years ago but her Chicken & Dumplings was the best. Never found anything to compare to her's and don't think I ever will but thanks for the slow cooker receipe might be the closest thing. I think you for this.

    Re: Crockpot Chicken & Dumplin's

    I've made this a couple of times recently and it's turned out perfectly every time. I roll my biscuits out and slice them to dumpling size. I haven't tried the "just tear 'em up" method as that's not what I grew up on. My grandmother's chicken and dumplings was very simple and delicious and I've never been satisfied by anyone's else's - certainly not my own - but this little slow cooker recipe has won me over and my whole family loves it!

    I made a slight adjustment last time in that I didn't shred the chicken too much. I'd say I shredded half of it finely, then left the other half in more chuck-sized pieces - that was a bigger hit with the fam.

    Definitely give it a try, Rogue!

    Oh my goodness I tried this earlier this week and it was GREAT. I chopped some celery and threw it in along with some sweet peas. I have enough for at least 4 meals during the week and it's good.

    While I really can't remember my grandmother's receipes since I was a kid this is excellent. Thank you so much Staci this will be in my regular rotation of meals going forward.

    You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked it. It really is ridiculously easy and soooo delicious.

    Re: Crockpot Chicken & Dumplin's

    My first time on this forum - I'm not a cook, by no means. I saw this thread, and just wanted to toss something out there. This is one of my favorites - my wife makes a pretty mean batch! She boils a couple of eggs and chops up to add (along with the celery that's mentioned above) - it really adds to the flavor!

    I like mine in chunky pieces along with the shredded as well....it's a texture thing.

    I know you guys recycle leftovers like we do sometimes....add some fresh veggies [carrots, peas, onions, mushrooms, etc.], put it all in a casserole dish and throw some pie pastry on top, bake it a few and voila, .....chicken pot pie. Somehow it makes third day leftovers exciting again.

    I'm not a chicken and dumplings fan but my mother always cooks it for our family reunion. One trick she started doing is taking flour tortillas and cutting them into bite size strips for the dumplings. Once they cook they expand like a dumpling and her pot always comes up empty at the reunion. I thought the flour tortillas was an interesting easy way to make the dumplings.

    Re: Crockpot Chicken & Dumplin's

    Has anyone tried the ready made dumplings from the frozen food section? They taste as good as my scratch made ones, I can also make a mess with a cup and a half of flour. They have wax paper between them but still stick sometime, we found that if you nuke 'em for 20 seconds it eliminates that problem.

    Should the crock cooker be pre-heated? Does it matter to flavor or cooking time?

    Doesn't matter. I've never pre-heated my crockpot; just put everything in that I need to and turn that sucker on!

    I made a batch just this past week and seasoned it with a little Slap Ya Mama. Boy, did it kick up the flavor!

    Re: Crockpot Chicken & Dumplin's

    I recently found a recipe for chicken and dumplings, and so far I have made them two times. I haven't tried them in a crock pot yet, but that is a great idea. I put everything in big pot on the stove. I use Grands buttermilk can biscuits. I roll them in my hands to form a long tube, and then I cut them into 6ths or 8ths depending upon how big I want them then I roll them in flour to help them keep there shape while cooking. Everything is done within about 30 minutes. I'm actually having this tomorrow night for supper. Yummy!

    Re: Crockpot Chicken & Dumplin's

    I've had the same issues as others; my mom's chicken and dumplings were the best I've ever had. I never had my paternal grandmother's chicken and dumplings but did eat her gopher and dumplings when I was a kid. This was before the gopher tortoise was considered threatened or endangered.

    i think I'll give this recipe a try. Do you flatten out the biscuits using a roller or hands; then cut into strips? (I don't care for thick, gooey dumplings.)

    Is refrigerated biscuit dough the same thing as canned biscuits?

    I have Mary B's frozen biscuits in the freezer; do you think these would work if I thawed and flattened?

    ETA: just realized the last post is pretty old but it is the most recent in the Recipe forum.
