{Crock Pot} Chicken and Dumplings

March 07, 2014

Today is a pretty darn special day.  It's my daughter's birthday.  Yes, all my kids birthdays are special. But, her birthday is the one that started it all.  It's not only her birthday, it's the day I became a mom for the first time. So, the feelings is a bit different.  Not, better..just different..you know? It's also her last year before becoming a teenager. One to go.  Next year..13. I try not to think about that..I've heard it's not very pleasant at times to have a teenager in your house.  Oh..she's a doll and not a problem at all, so, there's nothing to worry about, right?  Right?!  Let's focus on the now..Happy Birthday Sweetheart :)

Chicken and Dumplings.  The perfect cold weather, make you feel warm all over comfort food.  This version is cooked up in the crock pot and it will make your kitchen not only feel warm and toasty, but, it will smell amazing.  It's a great, simple meal to warm you up.
{if you do not wish to use refrigerator biscuits, this will also work with your favorite homemade biscuit recipe, but, you cooking time may change}
