Dear Cracker Barrell,
Papa bear loves you or, more to the point, Papa bear loves your chicken and dumplings recipe. I, on the other hand, cannot find a single thing on your menu below one billion calories (okay, fine, I can find items, I just wouldn't eat such items) and I am writing to express my great excitement over the fact that my wonderful friend, Heidi, has delivered me the easiest, most scrumpdeliosis chicken and dumpling recipe ever. You can take your artery-clogging meal plan and...well, um, serve it to someone else...so there. :P
1 chicken bouillon cube (Try Herbox sodium free bouillon)
Spray crockpot with Pam. Combine all in crockpot and cook on high for 5 hours or low for...well, um, let's go with 7 hours.
Dumplings: You have options here.
1. Get a tube of buttermilk biscuits and drop in tablespoon-sized plops 15-20 minutes before serving.
2. Mix 2 cups of bisquick and 2/3 cup of milk and drop tablespoon plops in 15-20 minutes before serving.
3. Combine 2 cups of flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of milk. Stir well then let dough rest for 5-10 minutes. Drop in tablespoon plops 20 minutes before serving.
