Slow Cooker Chicken & Herb Dumplings
My husband and 3yr old and I love this recipe. It is really delicious and easy.I did not have any problem with my dumplings sticking together. I just started dropping them as close as I could get to the outside edge of the slow cooker and went around clock-wise and worked my way in. I ended out with about 11 dumplings. I also added some no salt poultry seasoning, some sage and some salt to taste to the broth. I made this all last winter and since it cooled down a bit now for the fall here, I am making it again today.
Started out great until it was time to put the dumplings in. They stuck together and made a big mushy biscuit floating on top of the liquid. :-(
