Chicken and dumplings is a favorite in our home, and this crockpot chicken and dumplings with grand biscuits truly is a breeze to make. I used canned biscuits to help cut down prep time, and let me say it works perfectly each time. You can’t even tell they are store bought biscuits as the dumplings, as they take on the flavor of the creamy sauce they are smothered in. Plus, using canned biscuits will help in giving you a thicker sauce, I learned this trick years ago, and have stuck with it.

Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
So I have a few accessories I use with my crock pot that will save you time, which I love. First I love my claws, that works great at shredding meats, it gives you that perfect pulled meat in seconds. You can use two forks, but when I can I use my claws, just cause it shaves off time!
Next, if you have not used crockpot liners, you are missing out. They make the cleanup a breeze. I had recently used up my box of liners, and when I went to cook these chicken and dumplings I didn’t have any. I knew I would have more of a cleanup without the liners. With the crockpot liner, you just put it in your slow cooker and then toss in your ingredients. Cook, and then when you are done, scoop out any leftover food and toss the liner in the trash. It saves a ton of time from scrubbing cooked on food.

Using Frozen Vegetables for Chicken and Dumplings Recipe
I also find that using frozen vegetables in this dumplings recipe works great. Since you are cooking low and slow, having frozen veggies that are a bit more firm than canned will give you the right texture at the end of the cooking process. I have tried using fresh veggies, and they work, I just reach for frozen most often since I can have my stock pile in freezer and grab and toss in with no prep work needed.
