I literally looked through the freezer and cupboards to put this meal together. Since our No Spend Month is in full swing we are eating from our cupboard and freezer, with the exception of fresh things bought from the store like dairy products, fresh fruit and vegetables and some meat. I knew I wanted to do something in the crockpot so I looked around Pinterest for some inspiration and came up with this. I had each of these ingredients already in the house.
1 can broccoli and cheese soup
1.5 (16 oz.) containers chicken broth
2 cups heavy cream
3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 pkg frozen peas
3 whole carrots peeled and sliced
1 stalk of celery cut
random cheese tossed in
- To the crockpot add all ingredients except cream and cheese. Cook on Medium for 4-5 hours.
- Make dumplings and add them to the crockpost.
- 30 minutes before serving add cream and cheese until warmed through and cheese is melted.
- Serve hot.
Herbed Dumplings: I found this recipe on Allrecipes and used herbs I dried this summer from our herb garden.
