  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 3 cups Baby carrots
  • 1 cup Chicken broth
  • 2 packages Refrigerated biscuit dough (torn into pieces)


  • Add chicken, butter, cream of chicken soup, onion, and carrots into your slow cooker. Pour chicken broth over ingredients.

  • Add torn pieces of refrigerated biscuit dough and allow to cook for 30 more minutes.
  • Serve when chicken and biscuits are fully cooked.


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.
