I do agree that the chicken and dumplings is lacking something... but I'm picky on my chicken and dumplings.... I truly only like homemade. That one is my least favorite of the four we've tried!

I was totally expecting to not like the swedish meatballs, but I thought it was good....

My husband was raised on homemade everything, so I'm really surprised that he likes them!

And yes, my teenage son can handle adding the potatos or whatever needs added in the last 30 minutes, so I'm sure that whomever is left in charge on those late nights can handle it! I hear you about still being in charge of dinner even if you're not there!

I haven't made any of these in awhile and I remember there was one I did not care for. But of course I have no idea which one. I think I really did like one that had red potatoes in. I had forgotten about them. Thanks for the reminder. I need to start cooking more.

We tried the Chicken and Dumplings and thought it was lacking something. It had a ton of carrots in it.

We have tried these as well and really did like them. My husband and son are picky eaters and they even enjoyed them.

Thanks for posting. I've been wondering about the quality of crock pot meals. I have a late school night on wednesdays (8 AM - 10:10 PM) and I don't have time to fix homemade. But, somehow, it is still my responsibility to provide supper for the family. Go figure! This sounds perfect.

Thanks again

Hi all -- this came up in the grocery store tonight, and I decided to share....

Our family happens to LOVE the Banquet Crock Pot Classics.... we've had 4 of the 'flavors'
Beef Stew
Chicken and Dumplings
Chicken and Red Potatoes (or something like that)
Swedish Meatballs

I realize this isn't exactly a 'homemade' item, but they really do taste like they are, and I just thought I'd drop a recommendation for the busy people out there!

Drop in the crock before work... add something (potatoes or something) about 30 minutes before you eat and enjoy!
