Tasty Tuesday - Chicken N Dumplins!

Today's recipe is perfect for a cold, rainy day. And next Winter, it will be on my weekly meal rotation. I have always been a huge fan of chicken n dumplins and I L.O.V.E.D. this recipe! Reminded me of the good ol' Cracker Barrel. 
Recipe and picture is from Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen!


4 chicken breasts
(I only used 2)
2 cans cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/2 onion, chopped

salt and pepper to taste
Optional: chopped up carrots and celery

Add chicken, soup, broth, and onion to a crock pot and cook on low for at least 6 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks (chicken will be very tender and pull apart easily) and leave on warm.

Dumplings: (adapted from allrecipes.com)

2 cups flour

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 chicken bouillon cubes 

Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Add bouillon cubes.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, egg, sour cream, and chicken broth. Once combined, turn out onto a floured surface and roll out to about 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter, and cut again to make rectangles about an inch or so (doesn't really matter, I swear) long.
(I tried to do this and it got wayyyy too messy / sticky on my counter so I just pinched off pieces of dough and dropped them into the water. I don't really think it makes a difference either way.)

Drop 5 or 6 at a time into the boiling water. Once they float to the top, leave them for 30 seconds or so and take them out with a strainer. Mix cooked dumplings with the chicken mixture in the crockpot. Salt and pepper to taste.
