Great quick recipe for crock pot! I omitted the butter, by accident, and it still tasted great. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper and then shredded it before adding peas and dumplings at the end. Had to cook the dough a little longer, 40min, and still had a few raw dumplings. All in all a good recipe, will definately use again.


This recipe was okay. I probably won't use it again. I added some mushrooms and thyme to the recipe, but there still wasn't a lot of flavor.


First, I didn't follow the recipe exactly but think I got the "flavor" it was going for. Completely forgot the butter and, honestly, I don't think that you need it. I added carrots at the beginning with everything else--it was fine. I also added some chopped celery to sneak in one more veggie. As written, it is a good basic recipe. I think it needs something more. Next time, I think I'll add spices as I thought it was very bland. The whole family ate it without complaints. Husband took leftovers for lunch. I'll try it again with some tweaking. Thanks for sharing.
