Freezer Cooking: Couponed Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings!
Good morning, savvy savers! I hope this weekend will be a good, productive, yet time for you all! Today finds us with yet another one of my weekly freezer cooking recipes, this time my Couponed Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings! I use chicken from Zaycon, or on sale mid-month at Winn-Dixie, and my other ingredients from the Dollar Tree, and am able to make recipe for under $5.00, which feeds 8; this recipe creates two freezable meals to feed 4.

- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves; cut into bite size chunks.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
- 1 onion, finely diced (or use blacnhed or bagged frozen onions)
- 2 Cups Flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
- 1 Cup Luke Warm Water
- 1 Teaspoon dried parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Take 2 gallon size Ziploc bags and mark the contents of your bag.
- Divide chicken, condescend soup, onions, and salt and pepper up, between 2 gallon size Ziploc bags.
- Once ingredients are in bags, seal bags, making sure the majority of the inner air is released from the bag.
- Freeze bags horizontally and flat, while freezing, 4-6 hours.
- Once bags are frozen, they can be turned vertically to create more freezer storage.
- Bags last up to one year in freezer.
Variation: You can prepare and freeze your dumplings ahead of time, in a smaller pint size baggie, separated, frozen, and then place the smaller baggie inside your larger baggie, too. If you wish to make and freeze dumplings
- Start by sifting flour and baking soda in a separate bowl, and then add your oil, water, and parsley, until a dough forms. Let the dough rest on your counter top for 10 minutes. Then divide dumplings, using knife, to make 1 inch squares.
- Freeze squares in smaller baggies.
When ready to cook
- 1) In a Crockpot, add the chicken halves, cut into chunks.
- 2) Next, add your onions and soup to the Crockpot.
- 3) Cook the mixture on high for 6 hours.
- 4) On the 5th hour, add your dumpling packs, or if preferred, start to make your dumplings. Start by sifting flour and baking soda in a separate bowl, and then add your oil, water, and parsley, until a dough forms. Let the dough rest on your counter top for 10 minutes.
- 5) 30 minutes before completion, break your dough into small pieces, and add to the Crock Pot. Cook additional 30 minutes.
