    4 to 5 lb chicken
    3 small potatoes
    4 carrots
    ½ an onion
    2 or 3 cloves of garlic
    Some water (to top of crock pot)
    1 can chicken broth (optional)

    Peel and chop potatoes, carrots, onion and garlic.
    Load chicken and vegetables into crock pot.
    Top off with water (and add a can of chicken broth if desired).
    Set crock pot on low and let cook for 8 or 9 hours (suggested), or on high for 4 hours.

    You could always make chicken and dumplings, but you’ll have to pull the chicken out and pick the meat off the bones when you get home. Put the chicken in the crock pot with salt and pepper and cover with water, let it cook all day. When you get home pull the chicken out and add the dumplings to the crock pot and let them cook while your picking the meat of the chicken. Once the dumplings are about done add the meat back to the crock pot and stir it in. You can find pre-made dumplings in the freezer section. It’s a little effort when you get home but 20 minutes is way better than 2 hours.

    This one is really good, it’s my grandmothers recipe. My kids LOVE it.

    Chicken and Dumplings

    1 whole chicken
    1 bay leaf
    2 tsp garlic salt
    6 black peppercorns
    6 cups of water
    1 cup baby carrots
    1 package refrigerator biscuits (10 – 12)

    Place chicken in crock pot and add everything except carrots. Cook on low for about 8-10 hours. Remove chicken and de-bone. Pour broth into large pot on stove and heat until boiling. Add carrots and cook for 30 minutes. Thicken broth with cornstarch or flour mixed with cold water. Tear refrigerator biscuits into 3-4 pieces each and drop into boiling broth, lower heat and cover. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until biscuits puff up. Add chicken and carrots, stir, and serve.
