Cooking things: chicken and dumplings

I got a crockpot last week and I've only made two things in it so far, but I love cooking with it. So now, posting the recipe for personal convenience and because I want to.

Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings, adapted from this recipe (that was pretty boring initially).

5 medium red potatoes
4 carrots
1 thing (chunk? head?) of broccoli
as much frozen corn as appropriate
1/4 of an onion
3/4 pound of chicken or so
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cups water
16 oz (possibly more) refrigerated biscuts
1 tsp pepper
1 tbs chicken boullion
a bit of garlic

chop up everything that needs chopping and put it in the pot, vegetables on the bottom. add in the soup, water and spices and cook on low for 5 hours. Stir it up and add chunks of biscut dough on the top, enough to cover the soupy part. Cook on high for another half hour.

The version I made had way too much pepper, so this recipe reflects that. I think some cumin would have been a good addition, but I didn't have any.

Finished product:

  1. That photo looks like it has cauliflower in it, not broccoli. It sounds interesting, I've had rather little in the way of crock pot food and have never cooked any personally.
