Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made this recipe twice now. I have made this recipe twice now. I read that everyone thought that it had little flavor. All you have to do is add dried seasonings. I added 1/4 of a palm full of all the following; rosemary, basil, thyme, parsley, and oregano. Or you could just add about a handful of Italian seasoning. It turned out just right. I also had a little problem with some of the "dumplings" falling apart. But the ones that did fall apart made the soup part of it thicker and better. And to help cut down on the calories and sodium i used Light & Fat Free Rduced Sodium Chicken Broth. I also added some chopped onion and i used about 4 cups of broth to help make the veggies softer.

I know you're really not supposed to take the lid of the crockpot, but since this was the first time I made this, I did ~ and I'm gald I did ~ because I had time to add some seasoning! This would have been extremely bland otherwise. I felt the need to add some salt and ground thyme. It was okay after that. The chicken literally fell apart after about 7 hours of cooking (a good thing). I thought this was very runny and needed to be thickened up quite a bit. It was quite watery. If there is a next time, I would add some flour or corn starch towards the end to thicken it up. That being said, I'd probably skip this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe that this got such bad reviews. I can't believe that this got such bad reviews. This was so delicious that I just bought everything to make it again. I did the slow cooker all day with the chicken (I used boneless, skinless, breast) & vegetables and when it was time to do the dumplings, I transferred this to a pot on the stovetop. Seems daunting, but I didn't feel my crock pot was hot enough to cook the dumplings and melt the cream cheese into the broth. I also did not use the stove top dumplings, instead, I used biscuit mix dumplings. The stew was rich and creamy and so delicious. My husband & I fought over the leftovers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This did not turn out well for me. This did not turn out well for me. I followed the instructions but ended up with a soggy, soupy dinner that had little flavor. The chive cream cheese did nothing for the taste. I will not make this again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have not made this recipe, but in response to the other comment, the calories/fat content are high... I have not made this recipe, but in response to the other comment, the calories/fat content are high for 2 main reasons: the recipe calls for chicken thighs; it uses full fat cream cheese. Change to boneless/skinless chicken breasts and reduced fat cream cheese. Plain reduced fat version,w/added garlic, italian seasoning, scallions...would work if you can't find seasoned. Also use only egg whites in the stuffing mix. (I'm a nutritionist- good luck!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought this was an excellent Fall recipe! I thought this was an excellent Fall recipe! I don't add salt to my food usually, I didn't add additional seasonings to this dish, and I thought it was good. My boyfriend added salt and pepper to his, but he likes things saltier than I do. I liked the stuffing dumplings (no problems with them)...much more flavorful than regular dumplings. My crockpot is small so I think it may have helped the dumplings stick together. I will make this again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was pretty good... This was pretty good... I expected a little more flavor. I would probably make this again with a couple adjustments. The stuffing dumplings can be tricky. After reading other reviews about the, I decided to take my time, do one spoonful at a time. I packed each spoonful into a tight ball and slowly dropped them in... also cooking them a little longer. They turned out good!!
