This is an easy slow cooker recipe that cooks while you are at work! It is wonderful on a cold, snowy day. I have four children who are picky eaters, and they LOVE this! Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 onion, finely diced

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.

  1. Super Easy! I liked it but my husband didn't...figures
  2. It really irritates me that people give a recipe 5 starts and then proceed to change it so that it's not even the same recipe anymore. If you don't like the recipe as is then don't give it a high rating - post your own separately somewhere else! That's not only rude, but it's misleading.
  3. Wonderful recipe. And for all the morons who simply make a totally different recipe by their additions, subtractions, cooking a bit longer or shorter...try posting your own recipe and stop giving 4 stars to a perfectly good recipe. All recipes are guidelines. We all have different tastes, so either like the recipe or leave it. - Read more ...
  4. I'm giving this 5 stars for it's easiness and flavor. It tastes close enough to homemade to be really enjoyable. I used 2 cans cream of chicken, 1 can chicken broth, and 1 & 1/2 soupcans of water to cover 2 FROZEN (helps keep it tender) chicken breasts (just 2 of us). I added the - Read more ...
  5. Excellent! Only adjustments needed are as follows: Use 2 cans of cream of chicken soup (as directed- don't deviate with other cream soups) cover with 1 14 oz can of chicken broth (no need to cover with water, dillutes flavor). Put torn biscuit dough in roughly 90 minutes before ready to serve and make sure - Read more ...
  6. This recipe is AWESOME with a few modifications. I made it for my mom, husband, 3 year-old and 8 month old and it was a HUGE hit with all of us! My husband liked it better than his grandma's homemade chicken and dumplings and the gourmet chef who lives next door tasted it and thought - Read more ...
  7. This was great! I made changes as suggested by others. I used 8 small breasts, used chicken broth instead of water, added a bit of white wine (less than 1/4 cup). I seasoned the chicken before cooking with seasoned pepper, garlic powder, chicken seasoning and paprika. I added fresh celery along with the onion. I - Read more ...
  8. I finally made this recipe today for our Sunday lunch. This was very tasty with my changes. First of all, I have the oblong slow cooker, so I used 6 small to medium sized breasts, first I poured half of a can of chicken broth in the bottom of the slow cooker, then placed the - Read more ...
  9. Sorry if this get long winded, but I love dumplings. I cant believe how good this recipe is! Ive been raised on my Great Grandma's recipe from West Virgina, and was sure this would be horrible. It was really good, and I just changed a few things to make it more like Na-Na's. I used - Read more ...
  10. WONDERFUL!! I used chicken broth instead of water and did not use the onion. Did season with salt, pepper and a little onion powder. I put on low in morning before going to work and let cook all day. I shredded the chicken(had used frozen chicken breasts) and turned to high and added 2 cans - Read more ...
