Chicken and Dumplings

Fall is the time of year when the weather changes and you look for warm, comfort foods to heat you from the inside out. Chicken and Dumplings was always one of those dishes for me. Luckily, or unluckily depending on the day when you ask me, it’s fall and 90 degrees here. So I don’t really need to be heated from the inside out. That said, I am typically always cold, especially in the Arctic Tundra known as my office. So a meal like this is hearty and warming in all settings. So for those who live in colder climates, this will do the trick of heating up the family. For those of us who like in a forever summer setting, it will help keep you in the fall spirit.

This is a crockpot recipe, but not quite a “set it, forget it” kind. So it would probably be great to make for a Sunday dinner when you are home, catching up on chores, reading a book, watching football, etc. I’m sure that the family will enjoy that special moment at dinner time when everyone gathers around the table and enjoys this fall favorite.
