Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings is the perfect freezer meal for winter!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings is one of my favorite comfort meals to make and enjoy for dinner!  Whenever I make chicken and dumplings it brings back many childhood memories of being at my grandma’s house for Sunday dinner.  It was not uncommon to have this meal a lot during the winter or cold season.  If you were sick she believed a bowl of Chicken and Dumplings would make you feel better. This is one of 15 crockpot freezer meals that I prepped to help make back to school a breeze.

To prepare, combine all ingredients except frozen dumplings and water in a labeled freezer safe ziploc bag. When ready to cook, place in fridge overnight to thaw. Place contents of bag in a 6 QT slow cooker and add enough water to cover the ingredients. Place lid on and cook on low 8 hours. Remove chicken and shred, add back to slow cooker and add in bag of frozen dumplings. Place lid on and cook on high for 30-45 minutes until dumplings are done.

Since I love her recipe so much I decided to make it in the crockpot and adapt it to my style of using slow cookers. With the Fall season upon us I will be making this recipe a lot.  I also make it as a Slow Cooker Freezer Meal.
