This is a pretty good recipe as is, but isn't at it's full potential. If this is all you have on hand, by all means - make this. It's fast, easy comfort food. If you have seasoning on hand, this could be fast, easy, delicious comfort food. I used boneless/skinless chicken tenderloins as they were what were on sale. They worked great. I read a review suggesting to throw the breasts in whole to keep them moist, but really? You're slow cooking them in plenty of moisture, it would be almost impossible to dry the chicken out. That, and I was not about to dig into a ton of gravy and dumplings to shred the chicken when the purpose of this recipe is EASE. The cubed chicken came out incredibly moist. I seasoned the tenderloins with cumin, chili powder, garlic, seasoned salt and poultry seasoning. I didn't measure, I just lightly sprinkled and rubbed the spices in. I used cream of mushroom with roasted garlic for flavor, and one cream of chicken with herbs. I used chicken broth instead of water as well. Around the same time I dropped the dough in (90 mins before serving), I added a small bag of frozen vegetables which I think are essential. They're fairly cheap at only $1/bag, so why not? With these adjustments, this is a 5 star recipe. Without, I found this recipe on the bland and boring side. Basically just chicken and gravy.
