I’m not sure there’s anything better than a warm bowl of soup on a cold day. I rarely have the time to have a pot simmering all day, though, so slow cooker soups are some of my favorites. And slow cooker chicken and dumplings was particularly awesome to come home to after a long day.
Using a combo of fresh and pre-prepared ingredients gives you the best of both worlds here. The cooking sauce and frozen gnocchi cut down prep time considerably and make this a great dump-and-go recipe, while the fresh vegetables elevate the taste to make it stand apart from canned soups. This quick version is great if you’re craving homemade chicken and dumplings, but don’t have time to fix them.
Served up with a big hunk of crusty bread for dinner, it’s an excellent fall meal.
