If my husband hadn't said this was "delicious", I probably would have given it 4 stars only. This is the first time I made chicken & dumplings. I made the following modifications, based on other reviewers suggestions: I used 1 can of cream of chicken, 1 can cream of mushroom. I used 1 frozen chicken breast and 1 thigh/leg quarter (hubby likes). I used 1 can of 10.5 oz of chicken broth rather than water, & a bit more, to get the chicken meat completely covered. Didn't really succeed 'cause the slow cooker isn't really that big. So, for the chicken meat that's not submerged in the chicken broth, I use the cream soups to cover it. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of the following: pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, & parsley (what we had on hand). I omitted the butter, but I'll probably add it the next time I make this. I used Grand biscuits (store brand--what we had on hand), which I cut into quarters, & sliced them in half, so they don't puff up as big. I added the dough about 2 hours before serving, making sure they get covered w/the broth---made it tricky 'cause they float up! I chopped up some celery, carrots and potatoes and cooked those in a separate pot. I added the veggies at least 20 mins. before serving, and I also turned off the crock pot at that point. I will probably add more seasoning as next time. This turned out better than I expected!! Definitely a comfort food & a keeper!!
