Enjoy dinner tonight with this classic chicken and dumplings recipe that's slow-cooked using chicken thighs, soup mix, Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers biscuits and sweet peas.

Ingredients

1
teaspoon oil
1
lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 1/2
cups sliced celery
1 1/2
cups fresh baby carrots
1
cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1
package (1.8 oz) dry leek soup mix
4
cups water
1
can (10.2 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers refrigerated Original biscuits
1
tablespoon cornmeal
1 1/2
cups frozen sweet peas
1/4
teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1 In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned.
  • 2 In 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, place chicken, celery, carrots, mushrooms, soup mix and water; mix well.
  • 3 Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours.
  • 4 Separate dough into 5 biscuits; cut each into 8 wedges. Place biscuits and cornmeal in 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag; shake gently to coat. Stir biscuits pieces into hot chicken mixture last hour of cook time.
  • 5 Cover; cook on High heat setting 1 hour or until biscuits are no longer doughy in center.
  • 6 Add frozen peas and pepper to chicken mixture. Cover; cook 10 minutes or until heated through.

Expert Tips

Dry mushroom soup mix can be used in place of the leek soup mix. To enhance the flavor of mushroom soup, add 1 small sliced leek or onion along with the celery.

In this recipe, the biscuits are cut into small pieces to speed their cooking. Because biscuits cook best in an almost-boiling sauce, quickly add them, and replace the slow cooker's lid so the sauce stays piping hot.

For a family supper, serve the chicken and dumplings with sweet corn kernels, a crisp, mixed-green salad and brownie sundaes.
