Food I Ate Friday - Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken with Biscuits

Slow-Cooker Creamy Chicken With Biscuits

I am not sure how many times I am going to say I am all about my crock pot, but one more time couldn't hurt.  It is a full blown obsession.

This meal is easy, delicious, and makes me happy.  I genuinely hope you try it!  Also, I am not in denial, my food pictures aren't beautiful, and I will continue to use the one's from the website's where I find recipes.


3/4 Pound Carrots (about 4) cut into 1-inch lengths
2 stalks celery - thinly sliced
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs 
(I used breasts and it is less rich - I just shred it while it is in the crock pot)
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
kosher salt and black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup heavy cream 
(I used 1/2 & 1/2 and it is less rich)


1. In a 4-6 quart slow cooker, toss together the carrots, celery, onions and flour.  Place the chicken on top and season with the poultry seasoning, salt and pepper (to liking).  Add the broth and wine.

2. Cover and cook until the chicken and vegetables are tender, on low for 5 to 6 hours or on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.  (I actually cooked it on low for 8 hours and the veggies were still crunchy, so I think this varies per crockpot.)

3. 30 minutes before serving prepare biscuits.  I used the ones you find in the fridge at the grocery store, but previously I have made my own from scratch :)  Whatever is your preference!

4. Ten minutes before serving, add the peas, heavy cream and a little more salt to the crock pot and stir until combined.  About 5 to 10 more minutes (I think I did more like 15).

5. To serve, place the bottom half of the biscuits in shallow bowls, then top with the chicken mixture and the remaining biscuit halves.

The original recipe can be found here.  As a lot of my favorites do, this one comes from Real Simple Magazine.  I recommend enjoying with a friend, a glass of wine and some jazz music.

Have a lovely weekend friends!


  1. That sounds like it would be so delicious! I am the worst food photographer ever, and it pains me when I post a food pic on instagram and someone asks me to blog about it... the filtered version of the picture is the only shot of the food I took, and it's never as appealing as the actual food is! I feel your pain on that one!

  2. OOo! I want to try this, but I'll have to leave out the peas. They are literally the only food he doesn't like. lol. :D
