  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can (16.3 oz) refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour


  1. Prep Ingredients: Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of your crockpot. Add the chopped onion, sliced carrots, and celery on top.
  2. Combine Soup and Spices: In a medium bowl, mix the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, garlic powder, dried thyme, dried parsley, salt, and pepper until well combined. Pour this mixture over the chicken and vegetables in the crockpot.
  3. Cook: Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  4. Shred Chicken: About 30 minutes before serving, remove the chicken breasts from the crockpot and shred them using two forks. Return the shredded chicken to the crockpot.
  5. Add Peas: Stir in the frozen peas.
  6. Prepare Dumplings: Open the can of refrigerated biscuit dough. Cut each biscuit into quarters, then toss the pieces in the flour to coat them lightly.
  7. Add Dumplings: Drop the biscuit pieces into the crockpot, spreading them out evenly over the top.
  8. Finish Cooking: Cover and cook on high for an additional 30 minutes, or until the dumplings are cooked through and no longer doughy in the center.
  9. Serve: Give the mixture a gentle stir to combine, then serve hot.
