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.
Thanks, Terri!

I found a recipe for another slow cooker meal that sounds pretty good and will probably try this one sometime soon:

Crockpot Chicken and Sweet Potatoes Recipes - Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes - Five Ingredient Crockpot Chicken Recipes

But I will probably substitute breasts for some of the thighs; son likes dark meat but hubby and I don't prefer it. The awesome thing about slow cookers is it's really hard to dry something out!

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
