Polish Chicken and Dumplings

"My kind of comfort food!!! Very tasty and easy! This recipe originally came from www.3fatchicks.com but I believe I tweaked it enough to call it my own!! The original recipe cut out the spices, milk and butter and used low-fat soup; if you are watching your weight-go for it! You do not neccessarily have to cook the chicken in the crock pot, you could just cook it in a skillet. The crock pot was just another 'tweak' so that the chicken would be ready for me to shred when I got home from work."

I live in KCMO, originally from Michigan. I'm an administrative assistant in the Internal Medicine department of a urban hospital. I married my high school sweetheart on Mackinac Island in August '02. Some of my favorite things to do...baking, snow skiing, camping, hiking, reading, and playing cards with my parents on Sunday afternoons. Someday, after we retire or win the lottery, I hope to live on Mackinac Island or in the UP of Michigan, possibly even open a B&B.
