Meet the Sullivans: Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

A few weeks ago I found this recipe from 365 Days of Slow Cooking on Pinterest. The recipe looked really simple and called for the seasoned slow cooker liner you see below, which I thought was really interesting looking, so I ordered one and it came within days. I gave the recipe (which is also on the back of the package for the liner) a try last week. 

(sorry to say, but kind looks like a dirty diaper!)

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

1 Homestyle Gravy Seasoned Slow Cooker Liner
4 frozen boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 cups water
1 bag frozen vegetable mix
1 can of biscuits

1. Unfold liner and place into slow cooker, gently pushing sides so that liner is evenly spread out.
2. Place chicken thighs in the slow cooker.
3. Pour water over the sides of the liner wetting all the seasoning.
4. Tie up the liner with some kitchen string. Cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours (depending on how hot your slow cooker cooks).
5. Carefully remove string. Remove the chicken and place on a cutting board. Shred the chicken and return to slow cooker liner.
6. Add in the veggies. Cover and cook on HIGH for another 15-30 minutes until veggies are warmed through.
7. While veggies are warming, bake biscuits according to directions on package. Ladle chicken, veggies and gravy over the top of the biscuits and serve.

Now, I'm going to be totally honest here. I didn't like this recipe so much. It was simple to put together. The flavors were fine, but the look of the chicken reminded me of gourmet cat food. That being said, Keith liked it! I don't think I'd make this again since I would have to re-order the liner every time and I really didn't like it enough to go through the trouble.

I don't like to talk negatively, but I'm sharing this because I promised I would let you all know what I thought of the product!
