After reading a hundred reviews, I decided to omit the onion and use onion power instead. I only used 1 package of biscuits, can't imagine 2. I sesasoned the chicken with pepper and parsley--No extra salt needed. I was cooking for 2, so i just used 2 frozen breasts. I would advise everyone NOT to use chicken broth, as condensed soup is salty enough, just plain water works fine and is needed to dilute--i used 3 cups. I also cut the bisuits into 6 pieces each, to help with the doughy-ness people talked about. I cooked on low heat for 6 hours, shredded the chicken, then presed the cut up biscuits down in the juice. I didn't thicken up my sauce and i'm glad i didn't, as with most dumpling recipes, the sauce thickens after adding the dumplings. After the biscuits cooked for 30 min, i stirred them up and then cooked them for 45 min more. I had no problem with mine being doughy at all. I was hoping for dumplings, but was sadly dissappointed. There is nothing miraculous that happens to the biscuits in the slow cooker, to my dismay, as it is simply chicken and biscuits. Good enough to eat once, but not to repeat.
