Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

I'm patiently waiting for the weather to warm up and then it will be time to grill.  The weatherman promised temps in the 50's but that wasn't happening so it was time for a comfort food dinner in the crock pot.



Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

1# chicken breasts
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup milk
Salt & freshly ground pepper

Place chicken breasts at the bottom of your crock pot.  Season with salt and pepper and then add the chicken broth, milk and sour cream to the pot.  Cover and heat over medium heat for 4 hours.  Fork shred chicken and add in the carrots to cook.   After 1 hour add in the peas.  Cook for an additional half hour.  In a small plastic container that has a cover, shake together 1/4 cup milk and 2 tbsp flour.  Stir into chicken mixture and allow to heat up.  After it's thickened, turn up the heat and drop in the dumplings (recipe below).  Cover and cook for 45 minutes.
