    In NC, 2-4-23, used 1 1/2 lbs rotisserie chicken from Costco, which was already cooked, but chopped it up,so cut cooking to 4 hours total, no need to chop the chicken. Added dumplings for the 2 hours. To eat at 715, started crockpot at 330 added dumplings at 515. Goal was 730 dinner, but 1st time I made this way...
