Ingredient Substitution
Dry mushroom soup mix can be used in place of the leek soup mix. To enhance the flavor of mushroom soup, add 1 small sliced leek or onion along with the celery.
Kitchen Tip
In this recipe, the biscuits are cut into small pieces to speed their cooking. Because biscuits cook best in an almost-boiling sauce, quickly add them and replace the slow cooker's lid so the sauce stays piping hot.
Serving Suggestion
For a family supper, serve the chicken and dumplings with sweet corn kernels, a crisp, mixed-green salad and brownie sundaes.
