Slow Cooker Saturday!

Today is the first day of Slow-Cooker Saturday! Every Saturday I will post a new slow-cooker recipe and/or a link for a new recipe. The winning recipe for today of my FAVORITE foods...........

Chicken & Dumplings


* 4 chicken breast halves
* 2 cans chicken broth (3 1/2 cups)
* 1 cup water
* 3 cubes chicken bouillon or equivalent base or granules
* 1 small carrot, chopped
* 1 small rib celery, chopped
* 1/2 cup chopped onion
* 12 large flour tortillas

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker, except tortillas. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Take out chicken and remove meat from bones, then place broth on stove in large pot. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and return to broth on stove top. Bring to a slow boil.

Cut tortillas in half, then in 1-inch strips. Place strips into simmering broth and boil gently for 15 to 20 minutes, stir occasionally. Broth should thicken but if too thin, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with just enough water to dissolve and stir into broth. Cook 5 to 10 minutes more.
Serves 4.

Hope you enjoy!
