A while back I was contacted by General Mills about creating an entree that would be great for serving with their frozen buttermilk biscuits, and I knew right away that it should be a stew. A chicken stew. I just can’t think of anything more welcome during the fall season than warm biscuits and stew. I also wanted it to be easy to put together and a recipe that the whole family would enjoy. That’s how this Slow Cooker Chicken Stew came to be.
You can prep all the ingredients for this stew in just a few minutes. Then pop it all in your slow cooker, set it and forget it. When you arrive home from work or a day running errands, this hearty chicken stew will be waiting for you. All you need to do is cook up a few buttermilk biscuits and dinner is ready.

Start by cutting the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Then sprinkle it with poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Toss it in a little flour and brown the pieces in a skillet. Transfer the chicken to your slow cooker.
Prepare the vegetables. Peel the carrots and wash the potatoes and celery. Cut everything into pieces about the same size as the chicken. Do the same with the onion. Roughly chop the parsley. Add all the veggies into the slow cooker.
In a small bowl, combine the cream of chicken soup, water, salt, pepper, and thyme. Pour the mixture over the chicken and vegetables in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours.
Serve with a side of biscuits!
I was compensated by General Mills for this post.
