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

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.
