Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Biscuits


This dish wasn’t quite what I meant it to be in the beginning. I put the chicken in the slow cooker and planned on being home about 8 pm from Lansing to make simple Baking Powder Biscuits to go with the meal. When at 9:30 pm we were still searching for book covers for the next day I knew those Baking Powder Biscuits were not going to get made.  We went to Wal-mart, CVS, Five Below, Walgreens (several of each store in different cities on our way home) looking for book covers. At 9:30 I told my son we were going to the grocery store and go old school with a paper bags for book covers. We bought a box of Bisquick to make easy dropped biscuits and picked up the paper grocery bags to be home by 9:45 pm. Dinner was on the table by 10:05. Yes, it was a night.

Has everyone freed their slow cooker from the depths of your cupboards? I don’t understand why everyone puts them away for the summer because I use mine year-round but if you haven’t released yours yet from your shelves now is the time! Slow Cooker Chicken has to be the easiest meal in the world. But, making so that my family will eat it 6-8 times a month and not get tired of it can be a challenge.

Verdict:

This was good. It was simple. It was comforting. It was hot. Everyone had one or two biscuits we cleaned up and packaged the leftovers for lunches the next day.

As I was making this I realized I need to put this into rotation every other month or so. It is so simple to make and on these nights when everything falls apart it still works. I was even going to buy store biscuits at one point to make this dish even easier. But, the Bisquik worked fine and if you have a favorite Baking Powder Biscuit recipe make a double batch and have some for breakfast sandwiches to put in the freezer. I am always thinking ahead of how to make the next meals even easier!

Serve this with a side of mixed vegetables and a green salad for a complete meal.

  1. I use my slow cooker so often it gets a special place in a nearby cupboard. I have several more in storage for holidays. But for week nights I love to throw stuff together for meals without a fuss!
