Homemade chicken n dumplins

I was in the mood for chicken and dumplings and found several recipes online. I picked the ones I liked and combined them to come up with one of my own--and it was delicious! Here are the ingredients used:
1 package boneless skinless chicken breast tenderloins
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
a pinch of garlic powder
1/2 onion, diced
1-2 celery stalks, diced
10 mini carrots, chopped small
Half and half, to taste
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
salt to taste
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter
In crockpot, place chicken, 1 can broth, soup, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir together and add celery, carrots, and onion. Cook on high for 4 hours. Shred chicken in pot and replace lid. Add in half and half to make creamy. In medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter in with pastry cutter or 2 forks. Stir milk in with fork until dough forms. Roll dough out after sprinkling surface with flour. Cut into squares after rolled flat ( I used a pizza cutter). Drop dumplings into crock pot and cook for 30 extra minutes on high in the crock pot. Serve warm!
As an extra note, the kids all loved this--even Will--he ate seconds:-)

Sounds yummy. One of my favorite things about visiting my in-laws is getting to have chicken and dumplings. I tried making them once but didn't have any luck. Maybe I should try again...
