Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

Oh, Monday. Did you really have to throw in this freezing snowy weather to add to your sting? Going on my 8th year here in the Northeast and I still haven’t come to terms with the winter weather. About the only thing cold weather is good for is an excuse to stay indoors and eat warm, hardy, comforting food. And yes, chicken and dumplings fits just that bill. This is especially perfect for a weekday since it takes no time to throw everything into the slow cooker. I mean, how fabulous is it to hit 6 pm and realize that dinner will only take another few minutes of your time. Just the kind of end of day you need on a freezing Monday like today.



  1. Chicken & Dumplings are my favorite meal…. they evoke childhood memories from my grandmother making them. LOVE that you turned it into a quick and easy slow cooker recipe!!! Can’t wait to try this!!!

    • Thanks Kim – it really is so (almost embarrassingly!) easy. Although I’m not sure any recipe can contest with one of grandma’s. :)

  2. I can’t believe how easy this is! I was introduced to chicken n dumplings later in life, and I enjoyed them. I’ve never even considered making them on my own, thanks for sharing!

    • It is easy – I almost didn’t post it since there is basically no recipe! But I think we could all use meals like this when we are having crazy days.

  3. This looks SO easy. Definitely worth throwing in the crockpot and cooking on low while I’m at work. I don’t use my crockpot nearly as much as I should!

    • I’m totally obsessed with the slow cooker – and this really is as easy as they come! Hope it makes dinner a cinch for you! :)

  4. I have this going in my slow cooker as we speak….I’m already hungry for dinner & it’s not even noon yet! LOL I’m really hoping this turns out, because it definitely beats making it the “real” or traditional way….ALL DAY LONG.
