What is your recipe for the baked potato rounds?
I love baking sliced potatoes and adding cheese and crumbled bacon on the top after the potatoes are done. You can serve them with sour cream or ranch dressing.

I haven't tried this recipe yet but it sounded too good not to. I have most of this on hand pretty much all the time. I am not sure who wrote it as it was on the internet but there was no sign up or anything for the site that I found it on. I will let you all know how it turns out.
Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
4 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion- chopped
3 lbs of your favorite chicken parts-cut up
2 cups of chicken broth
2 stalks celery
1 Tablespoon minced parsley
1 tsp black pepper
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 cup of dry white wine (optional)
1 can refrigerated biscuits or your own homemade dough
1/2 cup of heavy cream
2 Tablespoons flour
In a large skillet, brown onion in butter and oil just until tender, then brown chicken parts and place all in a crockpot. Add remaining ingredients except heavy cream, flour, and biscuits. Cook on high 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or on low 5-7 hours. When chicken is done, remove pieces to plate and let cool, then debone. While chicken is cooling, mix flour and cream together, then stir into crockpot. Open biscuits and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Drop into crockpot and turn on high. These will need to cook about 30 minutes, until they are firm. Return chicken meat to crockpot after deboning and serve.
