A few weeks ago I made chicken & dumplings in the crock pot and while they were very good, they weren’t great. So, Thursday was another cold rainy day and we decided to have them again with a few changes. Check out the original post here.
I made sure to buy some Cream of Chicken soup and used that instead of the Cream of Celery. I also omitted the onions. The plan was to dice them much smaller because in the first batch they were just too big, but I was lazy and just decided to leave them out altogether. They were not missed.
The Cream of Chicken soup gave a much better taste to the dish and as I said above, neither of us missed the onions. I might leave them out in the future as well.
Of course, when making this dish, you could add anything you wanted – peas, carrots, mushrooms, celery, corn, onions….whatever makes you happy, and I’m sure it would still be good.
