weight watchers best recipes | Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings (8 Points +)



Ingredients:

20 oz chicken breast (about 3 large breasts)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10.75 oz) can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
1 (10.75 oz) can 98% fat free cream of celery soup
2 c chicken broth- 99% fat free, reduced sodium
5 canned buttermilk biscuits
Optional Seasonings: pepper, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, parsley

Directions:

Remove visible fat from chicken breasts and place in crock pot.  Sprinkle with pepper, garlic powder and poultry seasoning.  Add onions, soups and broth.  Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8.

At this point the chicken is super tender so you can just use your fork to break the breasts up into smaller pieces or you can remove them and shred them.  I like to leave them in decent sized chunks because they will break up more whenever your stir them.

Flatten biscuits with your fingers and cut them into small strips.  I used the smaller "junior" sized biscuits and cut them into 8 pieces.  Drop biscuit pieces into broth and continue to cook on high for 20-30 more minutes or until cooked through.  Sprinkle individual servings with parsley if desired.
