This was  my dinner last night! I love a good slow cooker meal! This one was filling and pretty healthy too! There is no cream-off something soup or heavy cream. Just good for you ingredients! To make it even better use low-sodium chicken broth and non-fat milk!

This in itself is a great meal. While I was eating it I kept thinking how good it would be over some egg noodles or rice! Next time I think I might try it!

*If you want to make this recipe gluten free, just replace the flour with corn starch for the chicken recipe. For the dumplings recipe I used gluten-free flour. My dumplings came out a little dry so you might want to experiment with different types of flours, let me know what works for you!
