My Project: Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

Slow cooker chicken and dumplings
I tried this: May 2012
Alterations: I added a little heavy cream (maybe 2-3tbs) to the broth to thicken it up before adding my dumplings. I served with shredded cheddar cheese on top.

Thoughts: I’ve never made nor eaten “chicken and dumplings” before. But dumplings reminds me of matzoh balls (which I love), so I figured I would really like it. Turns out, my husband LOVED this dinner. He said it was one of my best. So heart and filling. Personally, I had a few gripes. I didn’t prefer the herb-y taste, so I think next time I make this I will cut way back on the herbs I toss in. I’d also make my dumplings bigger (and more plentiful) and add more potatoes. The shredded cheddar took this soup to the next level, and I wouldn’t want it without. A final thought- I feel misled by the pinned photo of this dish. My version did NOT look creamy and golden, nor did I have pieces of bone in chicken or peas (it wasn’t called for). Instead It ended up looking a little bit grayish and much more soup-like, with shredded chicken. Not NEARLY as appetizing as I thought it would look…


  1. That Pinterest. Giving folks false hope as to what dinner should look like- tat ALWAYS happens to me too. So annoying.

    Is there a baby yet??? I feel for you being pregnant during this god-awful heat wave. I was pregnant with Sam in south AL during a particularly nasty summer and that’s when I decided that I’d prefer to be pregnant during Christmas. (which was totally AWESOME btw, I highly recommend it.) so best of luck to you! I hope baby is out and you are having a nice glass of wine while enjoying the view of your feet! 😉
