I chopped up 3 carrots, an onion, a stalk of celery, and a bell pepper, then I put them in the crockpot with 3 cups of chicken broth. That cooked for 2 hours on low.
Then I mixed up 1/3 of a cup of flour with 1 cup of chicken broth and stirred it into the soup.
This is what it looked like:
I chopped up 2 chicken breasts and 2 red potatoes, then added them to the crockpot with some frozen peas and sliced mushrooms. I seasoned it with basil, rosemary, and tarragon:
All that cooked on low for 4 hours:
Then I mixed up a cup of biscuit mix with 1/3 cup of milk, added some more herbs, and dropped 4 spoonfuls of the dough onto the soup:
That cooked for 30 minutes uncovered and 30 more minutes covered:
It was supposed to make 4 servings, and it did make 4 dumplings, but there was a lot of soup leftover. It is good without the dumplings too, so it will be good for lunch tomorrow:
While the dumplings were cooking, hubby took the kids to the store for socks, and they bought me these flowers because of my sprained ankle. Aren't they pretty?
The soup was very good. Perfect for a cold winter's night. I will make it again. I think I might try thyme next time in place of the rosemary.
