Pregnancy cravings have taken over my life!
Or should I say, I’ve happily allowed my pregnancy cravings to take over my life…LOL. The latest and greatest craving that I had was for some homemade chicken and dumplings. I can’t even remember the last time that I had some but I do remember that my aunt made it, I was probably about 9 or 10 years old, and it was the best damn chicken and dumplings EVER!
It would’ve been easy enough to call up my aunt and get the recipe from her but I decided to do my due diligence and dig around on Pinterest to see what kind of recipes that I could find on there. Low and behold I came across a picture of some and instantly knew the recipe would be a hit. Even my husband loved it and he’s very particular about trying new things when it comes to his food and had NO clue as to what dumplings are…LOL.
So since the recipe worked so well in my home, and very much satisfied my craving, I figured I’d share it with you! It’s definitely going into rotation during the winter months. The only thing that I did differently from the recipe was that instead of using a dutch oven to cook everything in, after cooking the meat and sauteing the veggies, I threw everything into my crock pot!
Note* Step 12 just advises to spoon out small portions of the dough and drop them into your chicken and veggies!
