Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Hands down THE BEST chicken and dumplings ever. I made a few changes: Used a combination of chicken breast and boneless thighs because that's what was in the freezer. Added seasonings (black pepper, salt, paprika, garlic powder, red pepper flakes) to the pot. Used chicken broth instead of water. MOST IMPORTANT: I used homemade biscuit dough (find a recipe; it will only take 5 minutes to put it together) and the dumpling texture was silky smooth -- something that probably wouldn't have been achieved with refrigerated dough. Cooked on Low for 9 hours. Be sure to stir the dumplings partway through their cooking so the tops floating above the liquid get cooked. One other note: The recipe says 8 servings. Those would be huge servings. Depending on your appetite, you'll get 12 or more easily.

Cranberry Pork Chops II
Easy to make and tastes great. I made a few changes based on other comments: I didn't use any water, just the liquid left over from browning the chops. I only used half the white sugar, plus about 1/2 a tablespoon of brown sugar. I added some orange juice and orange zest, and a little bit of ginger and red pepper flakes. I also added some kecap manis, which is a thick Indonesian sweet soy sauce available in Asian markets. Soy sauce would work well, too. Turned out great. I served it with mashed potatoes, which tasted good with the cranberry sauce.

Chicken with Chipotle
If you like spicy food, increase the amount of chipotles. I used three and thought it could still use more bite. As others suggested, I browned the chicken, removed them from the pan, then sauteed some garlic and made the sauce. I put the chicken back in and put the pan in the oven to finish cooking. The sauce could still use something to give it more flavor, so next time I'll try adding cilantro.
