Crockpot Creamed Chicken & Biscuits

Crockpot Creamed Chicken over Cheesy Biscuits

This recipe is pure comfort food and so easy to make!! I threw this in the crockpot on a morning when it was zero outside and came home from work with the house smelling great and a wonderful hot dish on a day where the high temperature was only 14 degrees F. This dish also works for those who are gluten intolerant because Minute tapioca is used as the thickening agent. I adapted this from a recipe on the Better Homes & Garden’s website and have included their recipe for cheesy biscuits that the creamed chicken is ladled over to serve.

Ingredients
1 red pepper, diced
1 C. carrots, diced
1/2 C. onion, diced
1/2 C. celery, diced
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. dried thyme leaves, crushed
1/2 t. dried sage, crushed
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. ground black pepper
2 1/2 T. quick cooking tapioca, crushed
1 lb. frozen, boneless, skinless chicken thighs (using frozen meat allows it to cook all day without over cooking)
3/4 C. chicken stock or broth
1 C. frozen peas or baby lima beans
4 oz. light cream cheese, cut up
Cheesy Biscuits (see recipes below)

1. In a 3 1/2 or 4 qt. slow cooker, combine red pepper, carrots, onion, celery, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the tapioca over the vegetable mixture and stir. Top with the frozen chicken thighs and pour the broth over all.
2. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours.
3. Remove chicken from slow cooker and turn cooker to high heat. When cool enough to handle, chop the meat and return to the slow cooker along with the peas and cream cheese. Stir well. Cover and cook another 20 minutes.
4. Serve over cheesy biscuits (See below)
