Slow Cooker Showcase: Chicken and Dumplings

Each Thursday during the Fall and Winter I will showcase a slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe that I have tried and tasted. By sharing I hope you will be able to save a little time during the week as we all know saving time is just as valuable as saving money. And you will be able to enjoy a hot meal at the end of your day.

This week’s recipe is for Chicken and Dumplings! I personally love chicken and dumplings so I was excited to find an easy recipe to try. One thing to note is I put more celery and potatoes in then called for so I had to add more water to the pot in order for it to not be a large mess. Good rule of thumb is to keep the water level at 2/3 of the pot if it’s a soup or stew.

Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium white sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)**
  • 2 cups whole baby carrots
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces each) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano**
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 2/3 cup milk

Directions

  1. Place the chicken, potatoes, carrots and celery into a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Stir the soup, water, oregano and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken and vegetables.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours* or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Stir the baking mix and milk in a medium bowl. Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the chicken mixture. Increase the heat to HIGH. Tilt the lid to vent and cook for 30 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked in the center.

*Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

CrockPot Ribs Recipe

I have to say this week I am so busy I  do not have time to make anything new. I know sad ha? I thought I would share a quick dinner idea that I used last night since we had Karate at 4:30-5:30 and then basketball 6:00-7:00. I mean sometimes you just have to do what you can.

1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

1/4 cup of water

1 crockpot

as many ribs as your family can eat or will fit in your crockpot

Place 1/4 cup of water in the crock pot add ribs $4.18  and pour on the sauce $1.00. Place your crock pot on low for 8 hours… Voila dinner!

I threw in some Uncle Ben’s rice 90 seconds (free) in the microwave and a bag of Dole Salad mix ($1.00). DONE for under $7.00!
