I followed several reviewers' advice and added quite a bit of seasoning - cumin, parsley, seasoned salt, poultry seasoning, garlic powder and a tiny bit of celery salt. I only had cream of mushroom on hand, so used that, and subbed chicken broth for the water. I put the chicken in the slow cooker about halfway defrosted, and used 2 boneless breasts and 4 bone-in thighs. My kids and I prefer the dark meat, my husband likes the white meat. I always think the white meat comes out a bit dry, even cooked this way in liquid. I also added frozen mixed veggies about half way through the cooking. Added the dumplings about 2 hours before the end. ONLY USE ONE CAN OF BISCUITS!! This overfilled my slow cooker and made a big mess on my counter once the biscuits started to expand. Not sure about the dumplings - even at 2 hours, they're just a bit too doughy. I might make this next time as chicken and biscuits and just bake the biscuits separately. I'd probably make this again, but I don't think it'll be high on the rotation list. My 9 year old was not crazy about it.
