This is a super recipe! It is easy to prepare and produces a moist flavorful chicken dish. The dumplings were perfecr light and fluffy.I found that it was ready in 5 hours and turned it to warm turned it on low again an hour before dinner to cook the dumplings. Next time I will add carrots, peas & potatoes to the crockpot. I like the added bonus that you use fat reduced soup and skim milk and it tasted creamy good. Thanks Tish for a real winner.

Tish, this was delish! I followed all directions exactly, except I omitted the rosemary (my personal preference). The chicken came out so tender and full of flavor; the dumplings an added bonus. I doubled the recipe as well, and served with mashed potatoes and carrots on the side.

It was a great meal and really easy to make. The only thing that the dumplings needed to cook longer than an hour.
