My Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie is a healthier slow cooker version of the comfort food classic. Easy to make with a healthy twist.
So this year I will be posting slow cooker recipes once a week. I’m going to try, I say try to make most of these slow cooker recipes healthier. I will be posting a wide variety of recipes from everyday dinners, breakfast, dessert and side dishes to help simplify your life. Do you have a favorite recipe you would like me to convert to the slow cooker?
Crock Pot or Slow Cooker??? I am trying to decide which name to use. What do you call it??
This Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie is very simple to make and besides the biscuits, it is quite healthy. I added sweet potatoes, but you could substitute regular potatoes. The sweet potatoes added a subtle sweetness which I liked but not sure my kids felt the same way.
I used canned biscuits. I couldn’t find the reduced fat version of Pillsbury Grands™. Not sure if they discontinued making them.
I was going to make my own biscuits but ran out of time, which is what happens to most families on a busy weeknight. That is what makes my Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie so perfect. 30 minutes after you get home dinner is ready.
To make: Place chicken and veggies in the slow cooker. Whisk together the soup, milk, and spices.
Add soup mix to slow cooker, stir to combine. Cook on low for 5 hours.
Remove chicken and shred. Return chicken and frozen veggies to slow cooker. Cook for another hour or so until thickened. Serve with biscuits. YUM!
