Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings is one of those meals that you know will bring the family together at the dinner table. One of the wonderful things about this meal is that it is made in the slow cooker. Easy to make, yet it tastes like you have been cooking all day long. I promise I won’t tell your family that you weren’t in the kitchen all day long!
As you know, I like frugal meals and this one falls in that category. I used chicken thighs that I had purchased on sale. The thighs were on the bone, so I took a few extra minutes to cut the meat of the bone.
Cutting the meat off the bone is not a hard process, as long as you have a good pair of scissors. Purchasing chicken on the bone, with the skin is much less expensive that buying boneless/skinless chicken. Trust me, it is not hard and the savings is worth it.

My slow cooker is one of the best kitchen tools I have. I recently purchased on from Amazon (where I am an affiliate) That has a high, low and warming setting. Such a great feature!
Slow cooker chicken and dumplings is the perfect meal for those busy days. You can even get the ingredients ready the night before and toss them all in the slow cooker on your way out of the door!
