Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
I have NEVER made OR eaten chicken & dumplings. I made this because it was my husband's favorite dish growing up. Everyone (including my picky 6 year old) DEVOURED it. However, just like others have said, this is a great base recipe but could use some minor tweaks. I used: 2 cans of chicken broth in place of water. I omitted the onions in the slow cooker (due to picky little mouths), and used only 1 package of biscuit dough (Pillsbury Grand Buttermilk). I used about 8 thin chicken breasts (for faster cooking), and cooked on high for a total of 4 1/2 hours. To the base mixture, I added: Garlic powder, Rosemary, Thyme, pepper, paprika, & poultry seasoning. I cooked on high for 3 1/2 hours, before adding the dough - parted in 4's, and rolled up into little balls, and cooked 1 hour before serving. Perhaps the biggest alteration was that I sauteed sliced baby carrots, celery, and onion in butter and added them as a garnish. For me - it absolutely made the dish!
