  3. After cooking everything in the crockpot for about an hour, add your chicken broth and let cook on low for 4-6 hours.

  2. Slowly pour in the whole milk, whisking to combine.

  4. Coat work surface with flour and transfer the dumpling dough to that surface.

  7. Coat your dumplings in a bit more flour and add to the broth. Cook on high for another hour and enjoy!
