Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Biscuits

Today I bring you one of our favorite meals. This Creamy Chicken and Biscuits is fantastic for several reasons:

1. It’s made in the crockpot, and you know how I love that!

2. It also involves warm from the oven biscuits, which is a form of bread, which is glorious.

3. It’s got chicken and vegetables and a creamy sauce; it’s pure comfort food!

This is one of those meals that my husband gets excited about when I make and he does a little dance as he eats it. For him it’s the biscuits. They’re pretty darn good. We’ve made them for Biscuits and Gravy before with great results.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup whole milk

Instructions

Notes

I don't often have whole milk on-hand. But especially if I'm making the biscuits for the creamy chicken and biscuits, I have some heavy cream left and will use half cream and half low fat milk.
