This week's challenge for cooking was slow cooking. My original plan was to make a veggie soup in the slow cooker for the boy's work lunches. It didn't work out. I'll probably make it Sunday or Monday night instead. For the challenge I decided to instead make chicken and dumplings in the slow cooker.
I found a recipe in my big Fix-it and Forget-It book and adjusted it a bit to our tastes.
I threw in 2.25 cups of shredded cooked chicken, 1 c. chopped onion, 1.5 c. chopped carrots, 1.5 c. chopped celery, 6 c. chicken broth, and some garlic and basil.
I let it cook on low for 6 ish hours. Doesn't really need to be quite so long, but it worked with our timing since I had a program at work and we decided to take advantage of the snow and go sledding.
After cooking it in the slow cooker, I transferred (okay, the boy transferred since I'm a total clutz) the soup into a stock pot, brought it up to a boil, and added scoops of dumplings I made from the recipe on the side of the Bisquick box. Cook them according to package and enjoy!
