Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
(Prep Time: 25 minutes. Cooking time 6 hours)
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
½ cup flour
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 teaspoons flour
2 cups chicken broth
½ teaspoon chicken bouillon or concentrated chicken stock paste
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon sugar
3 Tablespoons butter
1 egg, beaten + enough milk to make 1 cup (about ¾ cup of milk)
¼ teaspoon dried dill
1. Place ½ cup of flour, paprika, salt and oregano in a zip style bag. Mix well and add chicken. Coat chicken with flour mixture.
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add chicken, shaking off excess flour. Brown chicken on both sides and place browned chicken in a slow cooker.
3. Using the remaining oil in the skillet, sauté the onions and garlic. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Return to medium heat and add broth and bouillon, stirring well until thickened. Pour this mixture over chicken in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
4. 30 minutes before serving, mix all dumpling ingredients in a medium sized bowl and drop into slow cooker by large spoonfuls (makes about 8 large dumplings). Don’t stir. Cover and continue to cook until dumplings are done, about 20 minutes.
