I found some old pictures in one of my Evernote notebooks. It was of chicken and dumplings I made for my mom and I last Winter. My mom had a taste for her childhood favorite dish and it was the perfect excuse to pull Lucille down from her throne. I almost forgot where I got the recipe but after digging through my crockpot recipes on Pinterest,I found the recipe. I found it on Spend with Pennies and what I really liked about it was that there was a shortcut to making the dumplings. I know that many folks like to do EVERYTHING from scratch,and while I admire that,it’s definitely not me. I like layering ingredients into Lucille and that’s pretty much all you’re doing with this recipe and there aren’t a gazillion ingredients either. If you decide to make this, please let me know by dropping pics of your creation in the comments here, or on Twitter using the hashtag #mommyincolorcooks,or on Facebook. Enjoy!
