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.

This is an easy recipe to make. It was a lot faster than I thought to prepare. Everyone seemed to like the taste. I kind of cheated on the dumplings because I used Bisquick instead of the ones listed on the recipe. It still turned out really good.

This is delicious!! I prepared exactly as directed and mine was ready in 4 hrs. start to finish including the cooking of the dumplings! I served with mashed potatoes as suggested and wished I had doubled the yummy sauce to have more gravy for them!! With the dumplimgs you could have this with just a few vegetables on the side and even skip the potatoes or rice. We enjoyed this and will certainly make again, Thanks Tish!:)

I made this without the dumplings. I had it over some leftover rice and DH had his on mashed potatoes. The flavour was great. I added 2 cloves of garlic and a can of sliced mushrooms cuz I like them that much :-)I also used 1 tbsp of lemon juice instead of 1 tsp because I love lemon on chicken. The only other thing I would change is to add less water as I found it a little too "liquidy" I prefer thicker juices to serve on the rice or potatoes.

I wasn't sure about this at first but it turned out fantastic! I didn't make the dumplings because I served it over mashed potatoes, so I thought that would be enough starches! I added some cornstarch mixed with cream at the end to thicken the gravy which did the trick!! Also used cream of mushroom soup because that's what I had on hand and it worked fine.

This was the most tender chicken I have ever had! I wanted to double the recipe but all I had was one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of broccoli. It was a perfect combination. I also used chicken broth in place of the water. The dumplings were also a great addition and I didnt have to serve this over anything because I also added broccoli, carrots, and green beans to the pot. It took a total of 5 hours for this to be done. I would highly recommend trying this. Thank you so much Tish for posting. Will be making this often.

I usually find crockpot recipes to be disappointing, but not this one! The sauce was delicious! The chicken was a bit overdone (I had to leave it for 8.5 hours till I got home from work), but still good. I added frozen peas at the end, and thickened a bit with cornstarch mixed into sour cream. I did not make the biscuits as I ran out of time, and served this over egg noodles. My husband had seconds and thirds!

Homemade at its best! I used 3 cans cream of chicken soup, 3 cans water. I omitted the rosemary and lemon juice. Added carrots, peas & potatoes to the crock pot. Cooked on high for 3 hours, then added Dumplings and cooked for another hour. Great Stuff!!!!!
