Ingredients

  • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • cups onion, diced
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can reduced-sodium chicken broth, I like Swanson's
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into small pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 (16 oz.) tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

Instructions

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery. Cook in microwave for 4 minutes, to soften.
  • To make the sauce: melt butter in a large saucepan. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and thyme, Cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Lightly coat the inside of crock-pot with nonstick spray. Season chicken thigh pieces with a pinch of salt and pepper, to taste. Place chicken pieces into crock-pot. Add softened potatoes, onion, carrots, and celery. Stir in chicken stock mixture and bay leaf. Cover and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours or cook on high for 1-2 hours. Add peas. Cover and keep warm for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Prepare biscuits according to package instructions. Serve chicken topped with 1 biscuit, if desired.

Notes

Makes 8 servings. Each serving 1 cup filling plus 1 biscuit.
