Cooking with the crockpot is one of my favorite thing. Crockpot and few ingredients? Even better. So, I was totally excited tot ry out this simple chicken and dumplings crock pot meal. Here’s what you need:
- Cream of chicken soup
Ok. Hard truth time. This was not good. Not at all. First of all, do not half this recipe. I did (because that’s all the chicken I had), and it barely made anything. I knew I was in trouble when I looked at everything in the crock pot and thought, “Huh. Okay then.” This recipe was SUPER salty. Now, I’m a person that doesn’t like much salt at all (and I routinely leave it out when I season dishes), so my taste buds might be skewed. However, I have made dishes with very similar ingredients, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why it tasted so salty. Neither my husband nor I liked it. Even though I halved the recipe and made the serving sizes super small, neither of us finished our dish.
I will say, though, that there is something to the idea. It just didn’t work for me. I think there is a way to make a few ingredient, slow cooker chicken and dumplings, but this wasn’t it for me. I liked the biscuits for the dumplings, and would keep that, but the rest of it needs a good look over. This wasn’t the recipe for me, and I won’t be making it again. However, my main complaint was the salt, so maybe you will feel differently about it.
