Chicken and Dumpling Stew

This is such a delicious, hearty dinner. Once again, gotta love using the slow cooker! And, wow, does this smell good when you walk into the house at the end of the day! YUM! However, I didn’t like having to pull the meat off the chicken bones, so might try a variation next time with boneless chicken breasts instead. But it’s still a great dinner, and the biscuits are fantastic!

Check out those biscuits rising from the slow cooker!

Chicken and dumplings!
