I used the Grands Jr. My biscuits started dissolving almost as soon as I put them in the crockpot. It turned into big, wet, sticky blob. I cook on stove top 2 32 ounce container of chicken broth 2 23 ounce can of cream of chicken soup 8 cans of homestyle biscuits cut in half and then into three pieces 4 hard boiled eggs.
Kind of late to comment…but some styles of the Grands biscuits have chunks of butter throughout which may have contributed to the dissolving. The only problem was that when my husband went back for seconds the dumplings had dissolved! If anyone has any idea to why or how this happened let me know. I pulled them into pieces and pressed them with my fingers before putting them in the broth. The biscuits are still doughy even though they were in the pot for an xtra 15 minutes after the first half hour.
I did exactly as the recipe says. Maybe its because I used the grands biscuits? A couple of other people have said the same thing. I used Grands biscuits.
Just tear them into smaller pieces. I also added some onion powder and garlic powder and black pepper. I always use biscuits ad m rumblings, but have never made it in a crock pot. I followed the directions, but rumblings were not done. Let them cook just 20 min longer and they melted into the both.
For those who said they want more seasoning you can just buy one box of regular broth snd one box of Swanson Tuscan starter. Also, if your in a pinch and want something super easy you can use 2 large cabs of chicken and then you only have to let it heat up for 30 min before you add the biscuits.
Fresh is better but it is a good last minute sterns time and still turns out pretty tasty. Made this yesterday on a cold and dreary day. It was a huge hit! I did add a can of cream of chicken soup, as well as some oregano, and a few other spices I threw in the pot.
The Cambells cream of chicken with herbs is even better in this dish. I still use the same amount of broth; however, I add I can of the cream of chicken with herbs and also a stick of butter. I always turn my crock pot on high before I add the biscuits and I always use the flaky layer ones they poof right up when I drop them in!
I would guess a regular can is 15 or 16 ounces, so 60 to 64 ounces. Had to post a comment about the pull apart pizza bread.
I know traditionally the recipe is for pepperoni but I decided to mix it up. Chicken and dumplings are very bland, as a rule, and requires A LOT of seasonings to make the dish flavorful.
I did comment to one of the other readers that we do use pepper for this, but only once we have fixed our own bowls. The dumplings vary on the type of can biscuits you use such as flaky, double stacked, buttermilk etc. That could be the reason for some dumplings coming put to doughy for some. Try a different type next time, I personally use the regular, it works best for me.
You are exactly right Lisa! We use regular buttermilk not butter flavored biscuits, which is what works best for us too. Someone else felt the same way, but I have always liked mine. Make sure to tear the biscuits into small pieces because they will swell when they are cooking. Could I use homemade gluten free biscuits in this? I know it might not be as creamy depending on the type of flour, but has anyone tried it? If I make any other changes after we try these, the recipe will become my recipe.
I end up using 20 biscuits, but we like a lot of dumplings in ours. And these are the very small biscuits. If you use the large ones that only have 5 or so in a can, then it would still be 2 cans. You can judge how many you want to use as you start adding them to the crockpot.
I used grand jr biscuits they just desendgrated and we had no dumplings! I was so disappointed. I went exactly by the recipe. They should plump up almost immediately after they are put into the broth. They did then when I went to stir them and let them cook the 20 more minutes they were gone! Not sure what happen! In fact, that was my first question when seeing the recipe — how do you not cook out the dumplings? Perhaps try another type of biscuit Grands, etc.
You could also adjust the temp down or not wait the full 30 minutes. Thanks for your input Brett. They started dissolving soon after I put them in the crockpot!! That seems to be the common factor when this is happening. For things like this, I buy the Great Value brand of small buttermilk biscuits.
Ive had this happen when broth was too hot. Ive even had noodles dissolve. Just wondering if anyone has put the ingredients in and started cooking on low in the morning or around lunch time in order for it to be ready at dinner time?
Working mom trying to multi-task? I have not tried that Shannon. I hope it works! Please come back and let us know if you try it. You should cook the chicken first but not due to cross contamination.. I think that is why some are having biscuits dissolve. They should not all be put in together. Took almost 4 hours and I used the cheapest store brand biscuits and flattened them first. I like thinner dumplings wonder if the frozen dumplings I use would work in crock pot…may try it..
It is something in the biscuits that makes it thicker. The way the recipe is, is exactly how we make it. Has anyone added anything to thicken the liquid? Looks good and sounds good though! But once you add the biscuits, it will thicken up.
I am on my last 15 minutes of cooking……. I sure hope dinner is awesome! If it not as thick to your likings. I also use onion, garlic powder, black pepper etc. My youngest likes for me to use the dumpling noodles instead of the biscuits. I cooked the dumplings longer than it said and they were still doughy.. Sorry to hear that Bille. I probably cook mine longer sometimes too, but have always liked the way the dumplings turned out. Try cutting flour tortillas into small pieces and use those instead of can biscuits.
I have had good luck with them. The dumplings will not be so doughy. I learned to use tortillas to make dumplings when I was a young working mother of two boys. I made this today. It turned out so good. I will surely be passing it along to my mom and making it again. I also add frozen green peas toward the end.
They cook in just a minute or two. What kind of biscuits should be used? Does anyone know if you can use chicken thighs instead of breasts? You are very welcome!
