Tasty Tuesday

The weather has been less than stellar the past few days, so I decided to whip out the crockpot. I saw a recipe for Chicken and Dumplings over at The Juice is Worth the Squeeze and knew that it would be a hit.

Chicken and Dumplings

4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 TB butter
2 Cans condensed cream of chicken soup (I used 1 cream of chick/1 cream of celery)
1 Can chicken broth
1 Small onion, finely chopped
1 12 oz tube refrigerated biscuit dough torn into pieces
2 Cans peas/carrots drained (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Place chicken, butter, soup, chicken broth, veggies and onion in crockpot.
Cover and cook 5 to 6 hours.
About 60-90 minutes before serving shred the chicken and place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker.
Cook until dough is no longer raw in center. (I kept the cooker on low until I added the dough, then switched to high for the last hour).

Another tip that I must give is that I love using Reynolds Slow Cooker liners. You just throw the bag out when you’re done and clean up is so easy.

I also made a Strawberry Shortcake using the Bisquick recipe that my grandmother used when I was a child. It was tasty, but I forgot the whipped cream!

Bisquick Strawberry Shortcake

2 1/3 c. Bisquick mix
1/2 c. Milk
1/2 c. Sugar
3 Tbsp. Butter (melted)
4 c. sliced Strawberries
Cool Whip

Preheat oven to 425
In medium bowl, mix together the strawberries and ½ cup sugar.
In another medium bowl, mix together the Bisquick, milk, butter, sugar until a soft dough forms. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet 6 spoonfuls (I put all of the batter into a cake pan and spread it out)
Bake 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Remove and split warm shortcakes; fill and top with strawberries and top with whipped topping (I don’t split it, I just cut it like pie pieces).

I love crockpot recipes! They are awesome and I've made this chicken and dumplings one before...yummy! Actually, it's so cold here this week so I should do this too!

My favorite dessert as a kid was strawberry shortcake and my mom always made it with a biscuit! Sooooo good!!!

Have a great day friend!

Sandy said...

YUM! That looks delish! I have been wanting to try those plastic things, but they kind of freak me out. I get nervous about the crockpot itself being on while I'm gone all day, let alone with plastic melting on it! LOL

I make chicken and dumplings this way, too! And my husband loves them!

TS Hendrik said...

I had no idea such liners existed! I haven't done that many slow cook recipes purely because I hate the cleanup. I must look into this further.

You know, I adore using my crockpot but I've never used those liners?? I need to (because those crocks sure can be a pain in the you-know-what to clean!).

The chicken & dumplings recipe looks delish...thank you for sharing!

Oh my gosh this looks so good. I'm definitely going to have to try it out - I think J.D. would be super impressed! And I just love strawberry shortcake - it totally reminds me of being a little kid in the summertime.

Crud... I'm hungry now! LOL! Pregnant women should not read blogs about food late at night! I'm off to go grab some mini mounds bars out of the fridge!
