With that being said, let me show you how I make chicken and dumplings in the crock pot
Here is the link where I got the idea, however I tweaked it a bit.
Remember that chicken we cooked the other day?
Chop it up and put it in the crock pot.
Add some of that stock you made too (enough to cover the chicken)
Next we are going to make our own cream of chicken soup
You will need: 1 cup chicken stock, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup flour, and 1/4 cup butter
Melt the butter and whisk in flour.
Add stock and milk. Stir on medium heat for about 3 minutes. If it doesn't thicken up enough add some more flour.
Add your homemade cream of chicken soup to your crock pot of chicken and broth.
Stir, cover, and let cook on high for few hours (or low for the day)
About 1.5 hours before dinner we need to add the dumpling dough
Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening. Stir in milk.
Take bite size bits of dough and drop them into the crock pot
Once all the dough is in stir, cover, and cook on high for an hour
(you can also add whatever seasonings you like here)
After an hour it is dinner time!
I hope you try this recipe and let me know what you think! It is a favorite here.
