Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie
Ok, so it’s winter. It’s cold. We’re just itching for spring to arrive. And we’re still craving comfort food something fierce. I am at least.
Chicken pot pie is one of my go-to comforting meals in these brutal winter months, but it’s not always something I want whip up on a busy weeknight, since it’s not exactly the quickest meal.
Enter: Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie. By letting your slow cooker do all the work, you get all of the dreamy, comforting benefits of a classic, by barely lifting a finger.
Garlic, bay, chicken stock, and plenty of thyme give the filling maximum flavor, while crisp carrots and celery give the filling loads of texture. Use the flaky buttermilk biscuit to soak up all the creamy goodness at the bottom of each bowl!

Can I use chicken thighs in place of breasts in this recipe?
Absolutely! Use whatever cut of chicken you prefer, just make sure they are both boneless and skinless, as this can alter the amount of liquid/fat in the finished product.
Can I use milk or half and half instead of cream?
I would not sub out the cream for anything else. It really gives it that luxurious mouthfeel you’d miss without it.
Can I add different vegetables??
Yes! Add whatever veggies you’d like, just make sure they have all have a similar cook time. You don’t want to end up with mushy vegetables.
