Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie

Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie

Serves 4.

My sauce wasn't as thick as I expected it to be.  Not sure if I did something wrong or if it was supposed to be like that, but this recipe did not offer the thick, creamy sauce of traditional pot pie.  But it's a convenient new option of making chicken pot pie in the crock pot.
Source: Real Simple

8 ounces cremini mushrooms, stems trimmed and halved if large
carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
sprigs fresh thyme
bay leaf
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8)
kosher salt and black pepper
package refrigerated biscuits
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen green beans
1/3 cup heavy cream

In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix together the mushrooms, carrots, onion, flour, thyme, bay leaf, and ½ cup water. Place the chicken on top; season with 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Cover and cook until the chicken and vegetables are tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).

Before serving, bake biscuits according to package directions.

Ten minutes before serving, add the peas, green beans, cream, and ½ teaspoon salt to the chicken mixture and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high or low until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more. To serve, place the chicken mixture in bowls and top with the biscuits.
