How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Stew with Herbed Dumplings


  1. In a bowl or plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. In batches, add chicken pieces to flour mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to a plate. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook for 8-10 minutes or until brown on all sides. Set aside.
  2. Place carrots, celery, onion and rosemary in slow cooker. Set chicken pieces over vegetables.
  3. Pour 1/2 cup stock into skillet and cook over medium-high heat, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan. Pour pan juices into slow cooker along with remaining stock. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4-6 hours or on LOW for 8-10 hour, until vegetables are tender and stew is bubbling. Add peas and stir gently to combine.
  4. In a bowl sift 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 okay). Drop dumpling mixture over chicken pieces. Cover and cook on HIGH for 25-30 minutes or until tester inserted in center of dumpling comes out clean. Serve garnished with fresh rosemary sprigs if desired.
