  • 3 medium potatoes, cut in 1/4” slices
  • 3 carrots (or 10-12 baby carrots), cut in 3/4” pieces
  • 1 (2 1/2) broiler/fryer chicken, skinned and cut in serving size pieces (OR 6 thighs, skinned)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • 1 can mushroom soup
  • Water
  • 1 can (8 oz.) refrigerator biscuits*

Place first 8 ingredients in Crock Pot in the order they appear in the ingredients list. Pour in mushroom soup. Refill soup can with water 1 1/2 times, and pour in over soup. Cover and cook 7 to 9 hours on low, or 4 1/2 to 5 hours on high. Drain chicken and vegetables (keep broth!); place in bowl, cover to keep warm.
