Slow-Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

The slow-cooker simmers chicken, potatoes, carrots, and celery in a creamy sauce and is topped with tender dumplings made easy and delicious with baking mix.

Time needed

20 minutes preparation + 8 hours cooking

Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lb.), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 C.)
  • 2 C. whole baby carrots
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced (about 1 C.)
  • 2 can (10 3/4 oz. each) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
  • 1 C. water
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 C. all-purpose baking mix
  • 2/3 C. milk


Place the chicken, potatoes, carrots and celery into a 6-quart slow cooker. Stir the soup, water, thyme and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken and vegetables.
Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours* or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir the baking mix and milk in a medium bowl. Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the chicken mixture. Increase the heat to HIGH. Tilt the lid to vent and cook for 30 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked in the center. *Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with spinach salad; baby spinach leaves topped with orange sections, dried cranberries and raspberry-pecan vinaigrette. For dessert serve wedges of mixed berry pie with whipped topping.
