Set it and forget it! until later

I may be working like crazy these days, but that doesn’t keep me out of the kitchen!  As long as I have my crock pot, dinner will still be homemade, and on the table.  Whether I am actually there or not!

This recipe for Slow-Cooker Creamy Chicken with Biscuits was featured in Real Simple magazine a few months ago.  It is similar to chicken pot pie, the perfect ending to a fall day.  Milk or half and half can be substituted for the heavy cream.  I have also used frozen chicken breast, and they did defrost and cook completely in the crock pot.  Can dinner be any easier?

Naturally Cassie’s version of Real Simple’s Slow-Cooker Cremay Chicken with Biscuits

serves about 3-4

add more chicken to increase the servings

Ingredients

  • 4 carrots, cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 pieces of chicken breast
  • black pepper
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (or use an additional 1/2 cup of broth)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/2 and 1/2, or milk

Directions

  1. In a  crock pot, combined the carrots, celery, onion, and flour. Place the chicken on top and season with the poultry seasoning, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Pour in the wine and broth.
  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.
  3. Thirty minutes before serving, prepare Real Simple’s Easy Drop Biscuits (if using).  You can also serve this with regular bread, or over brown rice.
  4. Ten minutes before serving, add the peas, and cream or milk, and stir.  Cover and cook until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more.
  5. To serve, place biscuits, bread, or rice in shallow bowls, then top with the chicken mixture.
