I wish I would have read the reviews first! The biscuits didn't cook at all. It was pretty frustrating as I was excited for a simple recipe. We ended up throwing the biscuits out and eating the mixture, but it wasn't ideal. I now know to cook the biscuits first.
this recipe is best if you bake the biscuits for a short time before putting them on the chicken mixture. i found the bottoms of the biscuits didn't cook fully if i placed them there right out of the "can". also, since i cook mine in a crock pot i add no additional fluid other than the soup right out of the can. this basic recipe can also be adapted, skip the veggies and biscuits and serve the shredded chicken/soup mixture over noodles or rice. i use my mini crock pot often since there are only two of us, no need to dig out the big one.
I was wondering how long to do cook it in the crockpot?
This is not Chicken and Dumplings, it's Chicken and Buscuits. Geeze.
bow..retired granny. That's cute. Congrats.
This recipe originated on Campbell's soup label, cream of celery I believe. I used to make it often I used canned mixed veg & a single boiled diced potato. I used to cut the biscuits in quarters so they would cook thru. Used the recipe often when I was a busy working Mom. Bow a retired granny, I've gone back to home made chicken pot pie with real gravy, fresh veggies & pie crust.
Delicious! I could not be happier with the way it turned out... I used 2 cans of mixed vegetables drained and rinsed. I still used the crm of mush soup and the 3/4C water. I did first cook the biscuits for 5 min to brown the bottom and then tossed them on to finish with the casserole for 15-20min. Very nummy! Good luck!
I made this last night for dinner after seeing it on Pinterest. Loved the minimum ingredients. I crisped 3 strips of bacon and quickly sauteed the frozen veggies in the pan too. The addition of bacon was a hit. Also used cream of chicken because had it in the pantry. Glad I missed the part about the water because I didnt use any water at all..wonder why it is in there. Not Needed. This recipe was delicious. My only complaint is that the biscuits were a little raw on bottom. After leaving it in the turned off oven (first helping -> raw on bottom), they firmed up better. Will def make this again...prob will cook the biscuits on a pan first and transfer over
This recipe turned out terrible!! Runny runny runny. Apparently the recipe is written incorrectly, calling for water and for frozen vegetables rather than thawed. I also believe cream of chicken soup would be much better. But tonights dinner will be McDonalds I threw out the whole casserole dish full of this terrible recipe!
this was horrible :( DO NOT ADD WATER! it turned out soooo watery and nasty.
This turned out horrible!!! The vegetables were still partially frozen and the biscuits were doughy underneath. Using frozen vegetables (in my opinion) adds water, so I'm not sure the extra 3/4 cup of water the recipe calls for would be necessary - might only need 1/4 as it was very runny. But the biscuit issue made it un-edible! Cooking it longer to make the biscuits not doughy only made the top of the biscuits completely burnt. I won't make this again.
The vegetables need to be thawed before cooking this recipe. I believe that is why the one reader below had issues with runniness and temperature.
This was hugely disappointing. The filling was COLD after 15 minutes, so I cooked it 15 more before adding the biscuits; then the biscuits were raw underneath and the filling was runny.
I decided to make it vegetarian style and a bit larger. I used Quorn Chik'n Tenders (meatless;frozen), a large bag of frozen mixed vegetables, 1 can low fat cream of mushroom soup, 1 can of cream of potato soup & doubled the water. I found a very quick & easy recipe for dumplings on the internet & followed the rest of the directions. Excellent! Would definitely make it again or use it as a potluck dish. You won't miss the meat!
Great for a quick after work meal. Real easy and good as well. I could only find the the flake type biscuts, does not seem to have changed a thing.
