Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine flour, salt and pepper in a bag. Add chicken pieces and toss to coat. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Brown chicken in oil on all sides (8 to 10 minutes). Set aside.
  • Put carrots, celery, onion and rosemary in slow cooker. Set chicken pieces over vegetables. Pour 1/2 cup stock into skillet and cook over medium high heat, scraping up brown bits. Pour pan juices into slow cooker along with remaining stock. Cover and cook on High for 4 to 6 hours or on Low for 8 to 10 hours. Add peas and stir gently to combine.
  • DUMPLINGS: In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, rosemary and salt. In a measuring cup combine milk and egg. Mix well and add to flour mixture. Stir with a fork to make a lumpy dough (do not overmix - lumps are fine). Drop dumpling mixture over chicken pieces. Cover and cook on High for 25 to 30 minutes or until tester inserted in center of cumpling comes out clean. Serve garnished with fresh rosemary sprigs.
  • TIP: Drop the dough on the chicken pieces rather than into the liquid for fluffier dumplings.

    is was a very good recipe. I modified it a bit by adding parsnips, and used a country herb grinder that had (rosemary, sea salt , basil, sage, thyme, mint, and oregano spices) I used a whole chicken cut curry style, two onions. I think browning the chicken beforehand does give it nice depth of flavour, plus using all the brown bits. I make my broth from Better then Bouillon.

    My suggestion is to add about another 1/2 cup to 1 cup of broth, The broth was so good, and it wasn't enough of it for me! Also cook the dumplings a bit longer then mentioned and add on top of the broth not chicken, as they could have been a bit more tender. All and all it was an outstanding dish.

    This was a very lovely and comforting meal that filled our home with warmth & yummy smells. I added 1tsp dried thyme to the chicken as well as substituted thyme for rosemary in the dumplings as per Lillian's note. Also, I left out the peas b/c I don't care for them. The dish was very nice, though I would add more salt & pepper next time - and I do plan to make it again! The only other thing is that there was an abundance of dumplings, not sure if I did something wrong.. Thanks Frankieanne!

    YOU ROCK...YOU ROCK...YOU ROCK!!! Your Chicken and Dumplings recipe was OUTSTANDING!!! The dumplings were absolutely PERFECT! Nice and fluffy...not soggy or pasty at all...as you can see in the cross section photo! And the flavor of the broth...YUM! Like a rich, hearty chicken soup! The ONLY change I made in this recipe is that I used 3 Tbls of oil instead of one and I used thyme instead of rosemary. I will make this often!

    made this yesterday and it's a keeper, easy to prepare and even easier to eat. The house smelled so good.
    One small addition I did was add mushrooms & green peppers and added other seasonings we like,
    But bookmarked and in my recipe file.
    Thanks

    Awesome recipe - and a real keeper! I love chicken and dumplings, but was a bit skeptical about making them in a crockpot. Well, now I am a believer. Thank you so much!

    Yummy, I love the touch of rosemary in the dumplings, this will be a great addition to the crock pot repertoire. Thanks for the idea.

    Well, I finally made this dish and it was outstanding. The dumplings came out perfectly, and the chicken was falling-off-the-bone delicious! Filled the whole house with a wonderful aroma while it was cooking too! Thanks for sharing!

    Ohh I can't wait to try this dish, I've only tried to make Chicken and Dumplings once and they turned out flavorless. I think I'm ready to give them another try with your recipe here. Thanks
