Foodie Friday: Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplins’


This meal was such a hit with the husband AND the baby that I will be easily throwing it together in my crock pot 50 years from now!

Speaking of making my own baby food – this was a great next step in solids with the fluffy dumplings and fall apart chicken bites. Houston had no problem chowing down on it and ate every bite again the next day at lunch :) Great for a new little eater and kids in general!


Ironically, it was almost the very first recipe I ever pinned on Pinterest and I JUST tried it for the first time last week. It is perfect for this fall weather we’ve been having! I even made double the recipe to send some to one of Hubby’s coworkers that just had a baby. It is absolutely perfect and EASY to make and take to new parents or even to double the recipe and freeze some for laterwhich is definitely what I’m doing next time!



I won’t tweak perfection, I’ll just lead you straight to the source for this little jewel at



The next couple of Fridays I have plans to actually show my own recipes that weren’t taken from Pinterest. I love sharing these great finds but it’s time I contribute something to the blogosphere, myself – possibly even pin worthy. Ha!


I know you’re just falling out of your seat with anticipation….


Happy weekend!!!






P.S. Am I the only one that can not believe that next weekend we’ll be in NOVEMBER already?!

Time flies :)


  1. My fave! I love, love, love chicken and dumplins. And I love even more that you leave the G off, just like me! I've never made it in the crock pot, may have to give it a shot!

  2. I'm not a chicken and dumplin fan but holy cow that looks amazing I might actually save this for a rainy day!

    So glad your little guy chowed down I feel so accomplished when my kid loves my home cooking lol like I've done something 'right'.

    I cannot believe November is in just a few days where did October go?!

  3. Isn't it amazing? This is by far the best recipe I've EVER found/had and it is SO easy. Absolutely the best. We even toss in carrots sometimes, too! And I add more biscuits...we like extra dumplings! :)

  4. GREAT blog!! I hope you don’t mind me visiting :-) it’s always good to find other Lexington area bloggers!!

  5. I make double batches of pretty much everything I cook nowadays. Spaghetti sauce actually gets made in probably a quadruple batch. Shawn does most of our cooking since he gets home first, so it's nice to have things that I can just pull out of the freezer the night before. He heats a can of green beans, and PRESTO! Dinner is served. I double-love CrockPot recipes. Will have to give this one a try.

  6. My husband LOVES chicken and dumplings! Maybe I will surprise him next week! Thanks!

  7. I've been making that recipe for a year now. Next time try Campbell's Cream of Chicken with Herb soup. SOOOO yummy!


I just shared my thoughts, I'd love to hear you share yours! {Besides, I'm tired of listening to the voices in my head.} I kid, I kid... ;)
