Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

1½ lbs. chicken breasts cubed
10½ oz. can cream of chicken soup
10½ oz. can cream of celery soup
1 cup of water
14½ oz. can chicken broth
2 carrots sliced (about 2 cups after being sliced)
2-3 ribs celery sliced (about 2 cups after being sliced)
1 yellow onion diced
½ tsp. thyme
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 cup frozen peas optional
16.3 oz. Pillsbury Grand Biscuits 8 biscuit sized can note- I only use 7 of these biscuits
more thyme and pepper for the top of biscuits
US Customary – Metric

Add chicken, carrots, onions, thyme, and black pepper to your slow cooker.
Add the cream of chicken soup, cream of celery soup, chicken broth, and water. Stir.
Cook on HIGH For 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours.
Add peas at this point if you would like. Stir.
I only use 7 biscuits for this recipe. Cut the biscuits into quarters. Arrange the biscuit quarters evenly over the soup.
Sprinkle dumplings with a touch of thyme and pepper. Replace the lid.
Turn your slow cooker to HIGH.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 45 minutes (DO NOT OPEN THE LID DURING THIS TIME). You will know the dumplings are done when they are no longer shiny.
NOTE- If your slow cooker has switched over to warm after cooking for a length of time you will need to cook the dumplings for 1.5 hours so the slow cooker gets back up to temperature

Recipe Notes:
Can I put my chicken breasts in whole and not diced?
Yes, I just shred them at the end of the cooking time with two forks.
Can I use a rotisserie chicken?
If you would like to use a rotisserie chicken, dice up the chicken, you can use white or dark meat.
Use 3 cups of the diced rotisserie chicken for this recipe.
Follow recipe the same as using raw, for the vegetables still need a long time to cook properly.
What can I use instead of canned biscuits?
Bisquick – Follow this recipe for Bisquick dumplings from Betty Crocker. Cook the dumplings for the same amount of time I have listed for the canned biscuits.
From Scratch – Use this recipe for homemade dumplings from Spruce Eats. Cooking time remains the same as my recipe.
Crescent rolls – you can use the crescent dough the same way this recipe does for biscuits. Cut into small pieces and add to the hot soup.
Flour tortillas – These can be used if you have none of the above. Cut into small squares and add to the finished soup. Cook for 20 minutes on high.
Can I freeze leftover chicken and dumplings?
Yes! Let the soup cool off and place into freezer zip lock bags or plastic Tupperware.
Freeze for up to three months.
Thaw in the fridge 24 hours before needed.
Reheat on the stovetop in a pan or in the microwave.
