Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

The classic chicken and dumplings you remember as a kid is made simpler with this crockpot version.  You still get that creamy gravy surrounded by tender chicken, peas and carrots, and of course dumplings.  This recipes makes the dumplings super easy by using refrigerated biscuits instead of the traditional  batter.  You can also make  individual meal prep meals which are perfect for sharing with others.  Just package in an oven safe glass dish so the meal can be reheated in the oven and the biscuits will cook properly.
