Biscuits and chicken seem like they should be listed under the definition of comfort food. They are so hearty, taste amazing, and when they come together with soup and vegetables, you suddenly have hot chicken and dumplings! This time-honored dish originates from the South and Midwest regions of the country and, apparently, it was pretty popular to serve during the Great Depression. Thankfully, these are different times, but some things never really change, especially when it comes to getting good bang for your buck and great flavor.
That is why we are so excited to introduce this delicious chicken and dumplings recipe to your table. The ingredients aren’t very expensive and this dish doesn’t require all the admirable efforts of the original, vintage version, because it all comes together, believe it or not, in your trusty slow cooker. Frozen veggies also play an important part and they are so underrated! No need to spend extra money and prep time on fresh ones when they already are in the freezer section, ready to go in a snap.
We’re all fans of chicken pot pie and chicken soup, and this flavor combination has some irresistible similarities that do not disappoint. Instead of noodles or pie crust, it’s biscuits that really make us do the happy dance, and rather than baking them from scratch, we used the refrigerated, pre-made buttermilk kind. They taste so good, and all you have to do is pop open the container and follow the rest of our easy instructions. That’s after your other ingredients have cooked without any required babysitting, allowing you to do whatever else you need to do (read: kick your feet up). Let’s all agree, that’s the beauty of a slow cooker and we guarantee this retro recipe with a new twist is going to knock your socks off!
