Recipe Notes

Cooking Tips:

  • For this recipe, I used a 6-quart slow cooker.
  • Keep an eye on your biscuits and check them before serving. Depending on your slow cooker it could take more time for them to cook through.

Common Questions:

Can I double this recipe: In my 6-quart slow cooker after the biscuits cooked it was pretty full and I would not have been able to double it. 

Can I skip the cream of chicken soup: I love the creamy flavor the soup gives this recipe. You instead can use a homemade version made with broth, cream, and flour. 

How to freeze this recipe: Once your recipe is fully cooked allow it to cool completely. Once cooled place it in a freezer-safe airtight container. Freeze for up to 3 months then place in the fridge to defrost overnight. Reheat on the stovetop and add more broth as needed.
