I use this recipe a lot. I adapted it from a potpie recipe which needs to be baked in the oven. I like to make this because the soup can cook in the slow cooker while we’re at church. When I get home, I transfer it to a soup kettle and make the dumplings while others set the table.

The dish is good served with applesauce or fruit salad.
