If you are looking for another great easy family dinner idea, this Chicken & Dumplings Rice Bowl is perfect. It’s slow cooker comfort food at it’s finest.
Chicken & Dumplings Rice Bowl
I love a delicious crock pot recipe. How about you? They are great aren’t they? I love that I can add everything to the pot late morning & come back later & dinner is done. Low stress, little clean up & it’s still hearty & filling for my super hungry family. Even better when they love it so much that they go back for seconds. The best part about this particular dish, is that even after they all have seconds, there is still enough leftovers that I don’t have to cook the next night either. Now that sure makes me happy. I mean we’re talking 10 minutes of prep for 2 nights of dinner. You can’t beat that.
You can enjoy this like a standard chicken & dumplings dish – by itself in a bowl. But we like to enjoy it over rice – which was how this recipe came about. It definitely makes the dish stretch & everyone is more than stuffed. If you like easy chicken dinner recipes then you will be making this one again & again. It’s a “go-to” dish for us in these cooler months & especially when feeding lots of guest too.
