Pull our your slow-cooker and let it do the heavy lifting to make this comfort-food classic. Skinless boneless thighs make the chicken in this dish extra moist. When the chicken is almost ready, make some Easy drop biscuits (or buy canned biscuit dough, but our recipe is really easy), and then serve in a bowl. It tastes amazing on night one and every night after, if you're meal-prepping.

Ingredients

  • ¾ pound carrots (about 4), cut into 1-inch lengths

  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8)

  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning

  • Kosher salt and black pepper

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 6 store-bought or Easy drop biscuits (see recipe), split

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • ½ cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, toss carrots, celery, onion, and flour. Place chicken on top and season with poultry seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and then add 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 (this shortens the posted total cooking time).

  3. At 30 minutes before serving, prepare the Easy drop biscuits (or store-bought biscuit dough).

  4. At 10 minutes before serving, add peas, cream, and ½ teaspoon salt to the chicken mixture and stir. Cover and cook until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more.

  5. To serve, place the bottom half of each biscuit in a shallow bowl, and then top with chicken mixture and the remaining biscuit half.
