Thanks for stopping by. The soup is tricky. I made a huge mess in the microwave. I use a huge bowl and keep an eye on it, particularly towards the end. I stop and restart the microwave a few times to keep it from going everywhere. The soaking allows for some of the items to soften like the chili and stew and just makes everything else taste better. I found that by using an electric kettle or a regular tea kettle on the stovetop and boiling water separately, rather than using the microwave, it works MUCH better!

Works well for the oatmeal and the soup for me. I also let the soup soak for a few minutes too before microwaving. The first day I had boiled over soup and oatmeal in my microwave.

So now about an hour before we are going to eat I put the package of powder and the water in a pot and let it soak. Then when ready just cook it up on the stove. Better flavor, and better cooking control. Oatmeal and soup taste a whole lot better. I make my soup in a 4 cup measuring cup…. Saves allot of cleanup. We simmer it on the stove the night before so we can just warm it up in the microwave the next day when we need it.

I went exactly by the recipe. They should plump up almost immediately after they are put into the broth. They did then when I went to stir them and let them cook the 20 more minutes they were gone! Not sure what happen! In fact, that was my first question when seeing the recipe — how do you not cook out the dumplings? Perhaps try another type of biscuit Grands, etc. You could also adjust the temp down or not wait the full 30 minutes. Thanks for your input Brett. They started dissolving soon after I put them in the crockpot!!

That seems to be the common factor when this is happening. For things like this, I buy the Great Value brand of small buttermilk biscuits. Ive had this happen when broth was too hot. Ive even had noodles dissolve. Just wondering if anyone has put the ingredients in and started cooking on low in the morning or around lunch time in order for it to be ready at dinner time? Working mom trying to multi-task?

I have not tried that Shannon. I hope it works! Please come back and let us know if you try it. You should cook the chicken first but not due to cross contamination.. I think that is why some are having biscuits dissolve. They should not all be put in together. Took almost 4 hours and I used the cheapest store brand biscuits and flattened them first. I like thinner dumplings wonder if the frozen dumplings I use would work in crock pot…may try it..

It is something in the biscuits that makes it thicker. The way the recipe is, is exactly how we make it. Has anyone added anything to thicken the liquid? Looks good and sounds good though! But once you add the biscuits, it will thicken up. I am on my last 15 minutes of cooking……. I sure hope dinner is awesome! If it not as thick to your likings. I also use onion, garlic powder, black pepper etc. My youngest likes for me to use the dumpling noodles instead of the biscuits.

I cooked the dumplings longer than it said and they were still doughy.. Sorry to hear that Bille. I probably cook mine longer sometimes too, but have always liked the way the dumplings turned out. Try cutting flour tortillas into small pieces and use those instead of can biscuits. I have had good luck with them. The dumplings will not be so doughy. I learned to use tortillas to make dumplings when I was a young working mother of two boys. I made this today.

It turned out so good. I will surely be passing it along to my mom and making it again. I also add frozen green peas toward the end. They cook in just a minute or two.

What kind of biscuits should be used? Does anyone know if you can use chicken thighs instead of breasts? You are very welcome! I followed the recipe and they came out great! What would be an approximate serving size? I followed the recipe to the t. Excellent flavor but the biscuits melted away. Never use butter milk or any other home style is the best.

I cook on stove top 2 32 ounce container of chicken broth 2 23 ounce can of cream of chicken soup 8 cans of homestyle biscuits cut in half and then into three pieces 4 hard boiled eggs Fill pot up with chicken broth two containers of chicken broth then add the 2 cans of cream of chicken soup mix well stir until it comes to a rapid boil prepared ahead of time flaten Biscuits into a handful of flour cut in half and then cut each half into 3 pieces drop pieces into rapid boiling pot.

It was very good! Will definitely cook this again. Add a can of cream of chicken and some butter! I am definitely going to try your recipe. How many total ounces of the chicken broth are you supposed to put in?? I love to use my crockpot, thanks for all the great recipes!! Making as I type this!! About to add the biscuits! If you like your dumpling thinner you can roll you biscuit out then cut it up.

Has anyone calculated calories, fat etc.
