Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

My crockpot is pretty much one of my best friends! I am all for simple, easy dinners, because let's face it, when you have two little ones running around time is of the essence. I love being able to toss in the ingredients, close the lid, press a button and 6-8 hours later 'voila, dinner is served!
Here is one of my families favorites:

Chicken not pictured :)

Here's what you need:
Boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I generally use four)
2 cans of buttermilk biscuits
1 Tbsp. of butter
1 cup of chicken broth
1 can of healthy request cream of mushroom soup
1 can of healthy request cream of chicken soup
1/4 diced onion
16 oz frozen peas and carrots
paprika, salt and pepper for seasoning
one package of dry ranch dressing mix

Spray crockpot with cooking spray, place your chicken inside, season with paprika, salt, and pepper to taste. I also add a package of dry ranch dressing mix too. Pour the soups, butter and onion over top and cover with chicken broth.
It will look very soupy, but don't worry the dumplings will soak up a lot of the liquid

Cover and cook on high on 5 hours

After it has cooked for five hours, remove lid and stir in frozen peas and carrots. Tear your biscuits into small pieces and form small balls.

They should look something like this

Place them on top of your mixture. Depending on how many dumplings you desire, you can use one or two cans of biscuits. Recover and cook for appx. 45 mins or until the dough is no longer raw in the center.
That's it! Enjoy!
