Great use of leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Boil down the legs and carcasss for your broth rather than using canned chicken broth or bouillon cubes. Original recipe calls for 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts if using for Chicken and Dumplings.

Recipe Ingredients for Turkey and Dumplings

4 cups turkey
3 cups fat-free cream of chicken soup
1/2 medium onion
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk

Recipe Directions for Turkey and Dumplings

  1. Cut turkey into cubes or bite size pieces. Combine turkey, soup, onion (diced), and broth in crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

  2. An hour before serving, turn crock to high and make dumplings.

  3. Cut (combine with a pastry cutter or 2 knives or a fork) butter into sifted flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir milk in only until blended.

  4. Drop by spoonfuls into your slow cooker; stirring gently so dumplings don't stick together.

  5. Cover and cook on HIGH for an additional 40 minutes or until biscuits are fluffed up and cooked through.

  6. (Do not lift lid during the dumpling cooking process.)
