    2 cans Swanson chicken broth
    2 cans Swanson chicken
    2 cans biscuits (10 count each)

    Bring chicken to boil in broth with salt and pepper. Roll out biscuits on floured board and cut in strips. Drop strips into boiling broth and simmer about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    chicken, 1-2 pounds
    1 can cream of chicken
    2 cans chicken broth (you can use the boullion cubes)
    1 1/2 cup water
    1 can peas
    1 can carrots
    1 package of biscuits (buttered or unbuttered)
    (I add celery if I have any)

    Cut chicken into small chunks to ensure it will cook.
    Combine chicken, chicken broth, cream of chicken, water, peas, carrots, and your choice of seasonings, such as parsley, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder to the Crock Pot and turn it to low (high if you want it to cook faster). Cook until chicken is tender; about 5 hours but this will vary according to your Crock-Pot (newer ones tend to run at a higher temperature).

    About 15 minutes before ready to eat, cut biscuits into quarters, roll into balls and place in the Crock Pot. Stir occasionally. Cover again until ready to eat.

    The best and the easiest dumplings you have ever eaten!!!
