Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This is a wonderfully easy and delicious recipe, and is easily adaptable to your own tastes in so far as spicing is concerned. Firstly, I have a large 7 quart slow cooker, so I started with about 4 pounds of boneless breast of chicken, and like most everyone else, substituted a 48oz can of College Inn chicken broth instead of the water, and added two cans each of Cream of Chicken and Cream of Celery soup. I loaded up the chicken with onion powder, rosemary and poultry seasoning and layered the bottom of the crock. In a very large mixing bowl, blended the chicken broth and the cans of soup, then pouring it over the layered chicken breasts. I then included 6 red potatos, halved (next time I will use about 10 or so). Three hours into the high heat cooking, I added a bag of baby carrots and sliced up several stalks of celery, topped off by 2 tubes of Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits, torn into pieces. I let this cook on high for another hour and it all came out positively fabulous. This Hamilton Beach 7 quart crock cooks a tad faster than a smaller crock, and in 5 hours, I could have cut the chicken with a feather without it being overcooked or mushy! I cannot wait to have this again. This is the perfect winter time in Pittsburgh recipe!
