Knowing that husband hates any and all things from the slow cooker, I begrudgingly picked this recipe. I needed something cooking while we were out all day so we could eat at a reasonable hour when we returned. I read the reviews and it sounded non-offensive enough. Like other reviewers, I used 1 can Cream of Chicken and 1 can Cream of Celery. I also used chicken broth (actually boullion) instead of just plain water. Also following another reviewer's advice, I decided to venture out and make my own dumplings (although the refridgerated biscuits didn't sound half bad.) Early this morning, I threw everything, except the dumplings, into the slow cooker, put it on Low, and left. Much later that day, we all returned home and I then added the dumplings (Herbed Dumplings, also from this site), turned it to High, and about 45 minutes later, we all sat down. Shockingly, after much whining from my husband about the impending "disgusting" meal, he actually said that it wasn't all that bad (translation: it must be good considering it was made in a slow cooker!!!). I have to say that even my 3, 5, and 7 year old ate it. Definately falls in the catagory of "comfort food" so next time, I'll save it for a nice, snowy evening - but amazingly, my husband agreed that there would be a "next time"!
