National Poultry Day- Easy Chicken Salad Recipe

Poultry is one of those staples that you can cook with just about anything. Regardless of what you have in your pantry, you can always find something to make if you have chicken in your freezer!

So let’s celebrate- March 19th is National Poultry Day!  Whether it is chicken, duck or turkey, there are many ways to make a wonderful poultry meal; grill it, glaze it, bake it, stuff it and even sauté it. Poultry is not only a healthier option but is usually quite a bit easier on your wallet then beef or pork. Adding simple inexpensive pantry staples to chicken like pasta, to make a fancy chicken Alfredo or add breading, cheese and pasta sauce to make a lovely chicken Parmesan are just a few ways to make great tasting meals without breaking the bank!
Here is a great recipe to try that is quick, easy and full of flavor. The best part, it costs very little to create this amazing Chicken salad sandwich.

Slow Cooker Recipe- Chicken & Dumplings

Each week during the Fall and Winter The Centsible Family will showcase a slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe that they have tried and tasted. By sharing we hope you will be able to save a little time during the week as we all know saving time is just as valuable as saving money. And you will be able to enjoy a hot meal at the end of your day.

This week’s recipe is for Chicken and Dumplings! I personally love chicken and dumplings so I was excited to find an easy recipe to try. One thing to note is I put more celery and potatoes in then called for so I had to add more water to the pot in order for it to not be a large mess. Good rule of thumb is to keep the water level at 2/3 of the pot if it’s a soup or stew.

Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium white sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)**
  • 2 cups whole baby carrots
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces each) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano**
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 2/3 cup milk

Directions

  1. Place the chicken, potatoes, carrots and celery into a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Stir the soup, water, oregano and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken and vegetables.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours* or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Stir the baking mix and milk in a medium bowl. Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the chicken mixture. Increase the heat to HIGH. Tilt the lid to vent and cook for 30 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked in the center.

*Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

** Substituted White Sweet Potatoes for Yukon Gold Potatoes and Oregano for Thyme as these were what I had on hand.

Thanks The Centsible Family!
