Brief report on tonight's dinner

WOW! That Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings recipe of Stephanie's turned out SO well! Matthew (our 3 year old) gobbled it down and asked for more!

To make the dumplings I too used Pamela's GF Baking Mix and made the drop biscuit recipe on the bag, but I increased it by half and the number of dumplings came out about right.

For the "cream of anything" soup, I used one can of GF creamy mushroom soup and then combined it with 1/2 a recipe of Stephanie's homemade substitution for cream soup.

I cooked it for a total of about 5 1/2 hours on high; I pulled the chicken pieces into smaller chunks and added the drop biscuit dough to the crock pot about 1 hour before the end.

Try it....you'll like it! :)

I found the soup at Whole Foods Market: Walnut Acres Organic Creamy Portobello.

I hadn't made chicken and dumplings in a long time...I had forgotten how warm and comforting it can be on a chilly evening! Hooray for Pamela's Baking Mix!
