Cassoulet (French pronunciation: [ka.su.lɛ], from Occitan caçolet [kasuˈlet]) is a rich, slow-cooked casserole originating in the south of France, containing meat (typically pork sausages, goose, duck and sometimes mutton), pork skin (couennes) and white beans (haricots blancs).
Cassoulet sounds fancy, even if I am only using chicken thighs and not fancier meats as mentioned in the description above. I am using small white beans, so cassoulet it is!

Chicken & Dumplings
Looking for a super quick and easy to prepare cold winter day meal?
Place chicken thighs with skin removed on the bottom of the crock pot.
Add chopped vegetable (onion, celery, carrots)
Add stock and soup and herbs. Stir to combine the ingredients a little.
Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 7 hours then make dumpling / biscuit dough.
I used Bisquick mix to make enough dough for 6 dumplings.
Remove chicken bones. Add frozen peas to crock pot and place dough in 3 inch blobs as a top layer in the crock pot and cook for at least another hour or until dumplings are done.
