Chicken and dumplings are a perfect dish for a cool day, or whenever the mood strikes. This simple recipe provides a faster, tasty alternative to traditional recipes cooked on the stove top. This dish was considered a southern luxury dish, according to Serious Eats with early recipes dating back to the early 1900s. Fortunately, this luxury eat is easy to make and budget friendly!
For this recipe you will need  a half an onion, chopped, two to three skinless, boneless, chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds), 1 can of biscuits, parsley, pepper, 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 14 ounces of your favorite chicken broth and two cans of cream of chicken soup. (Alternatively you could use cream of mushroom soup).
Place your chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker. Top the chicken with your butter and soups. Note: Do not add the water asked for on the soup can. Your chicken broth will serve as the liquid for this dish.
