Cassie -

If you're ever in the mood for the easiest slow-cook dumplings ever...

When I'm cooking chicken and dumplings in the slow cooker (my recipe is very similar to yours), after it's pretty much cooked through I'll often thicken just a bit (similarly to you) and then I'll add refrigerated biscuits on top - like the pillsbury refridgerated biscuits package? Open the package, quarter the biscuits, and lay them on top of the slow-cooker and turn to high. 40-50 minutes later the "biscuits" will plump up and billow out to be very soft dumplings.

It's the very, very lazy dumpling way, but it tastes extremely delicious.
