Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place everything except the biscuit dough into the slow cooker, and add enough water to almost cover.
  2. Place the lid on the pot and cook 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Remove chicken from pot, shred and return to pot. If sauce seems thin, stir 1 tbsp flour into 2 tbsp cold water and stir into sauce; turn heat up to high while preparing biscuits.
  3. Roll each biscuit out to about 3" diameter and cut each biscuit into 9 pieces. Layer biscuit pieces over the stew and cook another 1 hour on high.

This came out wonderful. I did pan fry the chicken a little bit beforehand. It was very easy to make.

This was good and easy to make. I did change it up a bit. I used 2 pounds of thighs and 2 cans of mixed veggies. I also didn't add the chicken broth. I followed the rest of the recipe as written other then I cooked mine on low for five hours and it was done. I then added the biscuits and cooked on high for another half an hour. We enjoyed it.
