During my Christmas-decorating, kitchen-painting, house-cleaning rampage I got a hankering to cook. Crazy, yes. But once you get in the Suzy Homemaker Mood, you’re stuck. What goes better with holiday decorating than a down-home, chicken classic like chicken and dumplings!
Absolutely one of the easiest things I have ever made and I live for slow cooker recipes; there is no feeling like walking in the house and smelling a delicious, homemade meal.I grabbed this recipe from Betty Crocker and made a few adaptations as I went; I am pretty sure you can’t mess this up.
Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
3 chicken breasts
1 – 2 cups frozen veggies of your choice
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup Bisquick (I used their gluten free mix)
2 tablespoons butter melted
Toss the chicken, veggies, and stock (with seasonings to taste) in your slow cooker. You can cut up the chicken if you want, but it will be tender and fall apart by the end of the cooking process. Crank up the heat.
Mix the milk and cornstarch together until combined. When the chicken mixture is heated up add the milk and cornstarch mixture, stir to thicken. Pop the lid back on and cook for about 4 hours. You can cook for longer, it will only make it better!
When you are about 30 minutes away from eating mix the dumpling ingredients with a fork until blended. Drop rounded spoonfuls in to the slow cooker (about 8-10 dumplings) and cook for about 30 minutes more.
Serve immediately and piping hot; tastes amazing as left overs too! This recipe makes about 4 – 5 servings depending on how hungry you are.
