Chicken and dumplings are the epitome of comfort food, aren't they? What could possible be better? A delicious chicken and dumplings that is so easy you can make it in your slow cooker. I put this recipe together to recreate a childhood favorite of ours (well, who am I kidding it is a favorite of adults too!).
Like many of you a lot of my favorite family dishes were made with a can of this and a can of that. Cooking styles have evolved a lot over the years and many of those recipes were left behind. I decided to rescue this one and remake it with all homemade ingredients.
This Simple Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings is soooo good that you will have a hard time eating just one bowl. Chad devoured this and declared it his new favorite chicken and dumplings. It is pure comfort food in a bowl. Enjoy. I know you will.
