Slow Cooked Chicken Dinner

Today’s dinner is quick to make but is made in the slow cooker – so you have to plan ahead for this one.  This dish is pure comfort -chicken, vegetables and a creamy sauce!  It only takes a few ingredients to make a delicious warm winter meal.  I have been making this dish for about 10 years now and it is a family favorite.  It reminds me of a similar dish made in a dutch oven.

  • I make this generally about once a week. I don’t bother with the soup, except the cream of mushroom does sound good. I add in celery and chopped onion, a tiny bit of Thyme and Sage.
    Oh, I almost forgot what my family thinks is the most important part!! I mix up a double batch of drop biscuits with Jiffy or Bisquick mix. Let set next to the warm crock pot for about 10 minutes to let the dough “rise” a little bit. Drop heaping tablespoons full right on top. Cover with the lid and don’t remove for about 20 minutes or until the biscuits are done. Makes a perfect casserole!!
    This recipe is also just as easy to do on the stove top. Cook the chicken until done. Remove and cover. Add all the veggies, the soup and the spices. Cook until tender. Thicken with the instant potatoes. Break up the chicken in large pieces and add back in the pot. Bring back to a boil and add the ready biscuit mix. Cover and turn down on low. Leave the lid on for 20 minutes. DONE!
