How to Make chix and dumplings for two in crock pot

Step-by-Step

  1. for the chicken stew
    put chicken thighs raw into pot, add vegetables and seasoning, and herbs..pls note i have not added SALT amts..i don't cook with salt, so i have no idea how much to use... add enough water to cover, leaving at least one inch for dumplings. take enough water out of crock pot to mix a slurry with the flour, and add to pot. cook on high for 4-6 hours, depending on how hot "high" is on your cooker..i use the 2 quart crock pot. the chicken will be falling off the bone, and shredding when you take it out..stir stew, put chicken back in.
  2. dumplings
    mix all dry ingredients, then add enough broth from the pot to make a wet, sticky dough. if you have one, use a small ice cream scooper to dole out dumplings. if not, use a heaping teaspoon for each dumpling, in a ball, dropping into the stew, gently ladle hot stew sauce over each dumpling, to "set" it, and continue until all used, try to keep each dumpling separate. put cover back on, and coninue to cook for about 15 minutes, until dumplings swell to @X their size..they may lift the cover on the crock pot, that's ok. serve hot
