Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

This is the first day since our dinner party that we haven't been dining on leftovers. Well, honestly, Jim is the only one who's been eating the leftovers really. I felt the need to detox after all the gluttony so I went meatless the past two's what I ate

Breakfast: Oikos Greek yogurt with honey on the bottom

Lunch: Fiber Plus berry yogurt clusters cereal, skim milk, tabouli

Snack: 1 biscuit with honey

Dinner: Coffee with fat free hazelnut cream, baby carrots, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, blueberries, special K crackers, laughing cow cheese wedge, and 2 special dark Hershey's kisses.

I realized after two days of that that I wasn't even eating meat! I didn't miss it much honestly.

But we fixed that tonight, oh buddy did we ever.

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings
(adapted from bubblecrumb's blog, 4 servings)


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth
1 onion diced
1 tablespoon dried parsley
dash of black pepper
5 biscuit's worth of biscuit dough, I used this recipe, as I had dough leftover from the dinner party.


Place everything but the biscuit dough in the crockpot on high for 4 hours.

After the 4 hours, break up chicken with a fork, cut the biscuit dough into 1 inch pieces and place in crockpot.

Continue to cook on high for about 1 hour, until dumplings are tender but firm. Serve hot.

Jim loves his home-cooked meals, and this one was a winner.

2 last things.

I am officially obsessed with watching Mad Men...I don't know why. It's so fascinating to me how messed up society was back then and how I both love and hate all the characters at the same time. Please make me stop, I need help.

Second and more important thing. I decided to compile a family/friends cookbook! I sent out letters today to the women of my family asking for recipes. I hope I get a good response! Also, if any friends/relatives/soon to be relatives have any special recipes you'd like to add, please by all means, send them to me!
