1970s Slow Cooker Chicken and Biscuits

This took me back to being a kid in the 70s. I could almost picture my purple bike with pink sparkle handle bar streamers and a white glitter banana seat parked outside our house. Add a vest, turtleneck, and jeans and I was 6 years old again.

I used canned soup for this recipe as that is what the recipe from this time called for but you can easily substitute a simple mix for the canned soups.

Verdict: Tons of flavor and super simple to make. Both kids kept commenting on how good it was. I didn’t let them know it was cream condensed soup until after they ate. They were both pleasantly surprised. I used the regular 8 ct. of biscuits even though the original recipe called for 4. We like the biscuits!

I serve this with a green vegetable and side salad to complete the meal.

    well, I only tasted biscuits once, I didn’t like them! So I doubt I’d eat this but maybe I’d be adventurous and give the biscuits another go!

      The biscuits do have a different texture to them. Maybe make some for on the side?
