This is by far the BEST chicken & dumpling recipe I've ever had. This recipe filled my 8qt crockpot to the brim, as you can tell in the picture. I used 4 packages of Bisquick mix because my husband LOVES dumplins...2 packages are plenty! I didn't salt or pepper until served...even then it didn't need it. I received rave reviews from my Mother In Law, Husband, and 5 year old nephew. The nephew came back the next day for seconds and finished off what little was left. My recipe was adapted from Foodie TV recipe that I had found on Facebook. I urge you to try it!!! You won't regret it!
