Gooseberry Patch Chicken and Dumplings

The Menu:
Gooseberry Patch Chicken and Dumplings
This is the time of year when lighting is terrible, and my pictures start to look
 not so nice, but it tasted good. That's all that counts, right!?!

The Original Recipe:
I have a Kindle. I love my Kindle and all of the free books you can get from Amazon. I have the very first Kindle they came out with. I love that I am always the first to jump on a bandwagon of new technology, only to find out a year later, they come out with 3 different version (better versions) of the very first one. I do it every time. Oh well, I still absolutly love my Kindle. I also love all the free Gooseberry Patch cookbooks I can find for it. While browsing through Circle of Friends 25 Slow Cooker Recipes, I found this Chicken and Dumpling recipe for the crockpot. It was nice and comforting. I don't normaly make this easy of a dish, but you just cannot go wrong, here. The whole pot was empty by the time we were done.

Chicken and Dumplings

1 1/2 bnlss sknlss chicken breasts, cubed
2 potoates, peeled and cubed
2 cups baby carrots
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 10 3/4 cans cream of chicken soup (I used healthy choice campbells)
1 cup water
1 t. dried thyme
1/4 t. pepper

2 c. baking mix (Bisquick)
2/3 c. milk

Place chicken, potatoes, carrots and celery n a slow cooker; set aside. In medium bowl, combine soup, water, thyme and peper; pour over chicken mixture. Cover and cook on low setting for 7 to 8 hours, until chicken juices run clear. Mix together baking mix and milk; drop into slow cooker by large spoonfuls. Tilt lid to vent and cook on high setting for 30 minutes, until dumplings are cooked in center. Serves 8

I got those free kindle books too (every day I comb Amazon's site for more free stuff!). The crock pot chick and dumplings sounds super!
