So again, being a complete Pinterest junkie I am in love with all of the recipes at my fingertips. Well this little number popped up a while back and I have made it three times since. It is AMAZING!! I made a few changes to the original recipe, so below is the recipe I cook to make it a little healthier and hardier:
Slow-Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
1lb of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 3)
2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
2 cans (10.5oz) Low Fat Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1.5 can (14oz) Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 medium White Onion, diced
1 Large sliced carrot
3/4 Bag of Frozen Peas
Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute
4 Large Flaky Refrigerator Biscuits (half a can)
Place thawed chicken in crock pot and top with butter. Add cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, diced onions, carrot and seasoning. Salt and pepper to your discretion. Cook on High for 4-6 hours or Low for 8 hours. Do not stir while cooking.
Cut each uncooked biscuit into 9 small pieces and stir into the chicken mixture and add frozen peas. Continue to cook on High for 30 minutes. Remove chicken from slow-cooker and shred with a fork. Return to slow-cooker and stir everything together. Serve hot.
Now the key ingredient in almost ALL of my dishes is the most AMAZING secret! 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe’s
. I kid you not, you can put this on EVERYTHING! It is sodium free and is the only seasoning I use on veggies, fish, chicken and so on. It looks like this:
