Recipe: Crockpot Chicken And Dumplings

Cooking In The Cab

Cooking In The Cab Who doesn’t like a little comfort food after a long day of work, but who wants to cook a big meal after said long day?  This easy crockpot meal will be sure to leave you full and satisfy your craving for some good ‘ole comfort food.

While this recipe might not be as good as mom’s old fashioned roll-out dumplings, it’s pretty fantastic and best of all, it can be made in the cab of your truck.

The recipe takes about 10 minutes to put together.  If you’re using raw chicken, it will need to cook on low for 10 hours; however, if you’re using pre-cooked chicken, 3 hours in the slow cooker should do it.

I found this recipe on a great site called Crockin’ Girls.  Check out their other great recipes by following this link.

Please read the entire recipe before you get started.  You will need to place the mixture into a baking pan and then place the baking pan into the crockpot, so you’ll need to make sure you have one that will fit inside of your crockpot.
