Slow Cooker Chicken Dumplings

First time I tried chicken dumplings was at a Cracker Barrel in San Antonio. Nothing special at first glance, the color was just so plain and the taste was so so. My likeness for chicken dumplings grew over the years and nowadays I would take my kids to Cracker Barrel to eat chicken dumplings.

Thanks to Google, of course, recipes for chicken dumplings are not hard to find at all. Here is my version of it:

4 frozen chicken breast tenderloins
2 T butter
2 celery hearts, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
broccoli soup
cream of chicken soup
1/2 a package of refrigerated biscuit dough, torn to little pieces.

Put all ingredients (except for celery and biscuit) in a slow cooker, cook on high for 5 hours. The biscuit dough pieces goes into the mixture after 3 hours of cooking (make sure you push them in deep into the mixture so they are cooked), and the celery slices go in last, 1/2 hour before you turn off the crockpot.

Beautiful chicken and dumplings
