Meal Deal Monday- Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Yes, I know it's not Monday but yesterday was Memorial Day and I forgot to do it. I am really going to start doing this every Monday again. Click HERE to view previous Meal Deal Monday Recipes. Remember all these are less than $5 to make!!!

My total today to feed 8 was only $4.24!!!

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, on sale for $2.99 a lb at Wal-Mart
2 tablespoons butter , $0.10. I use great value because it has no trans fat
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup, Free. Use coupon from HERE. These are priced at $0.50 each so after coupon free!
1 onion, finely diced , $.15. Go to the Mexican markets in your town because it's cheaper!
2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces. Join PSSST and get money saving coupons sent to you. I had $0.75 off each from them. These are priced at $1.25 at Wal-mart so $0.50 each after coupon.

Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.


  1. This sounds really good!! I'll have to try it!

  2. It's so good. Plus you can add what veggies you have on hand also!

  3. I haven't had chicken and dumplings for ages! My brother's friend Denise showed me how she makes it, but it's so involved. This slow cooker recipe looks like a much easier way. Thanks.
