Slow Cooking Thursday

It's time for another slow cooking recipe. Today I am going to post a few that have been well liked in my house. I have seen a version of both of these in past Thursdays on Sandra's blog, but have been asked by friends to post them again. Hope you enjoy them too!

Chicken over Biscuits (version of recipe posted by
1 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken tenders
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
12 oz jar chicken gravy
1/3 cup water
2 celery stalks, chopped
Pillsbury frozen buttermilk biscuits (they come in a pkg of 12)
1 16 oz bag frozen mixed vegetables
Place chicken in crock pot. Sprinkle onion, pepper and bay leaf over. Pour gravy over top, then water. Put celery on top. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.
30 minutes before serving, remove bay leaf and stir in mixed vegetables. Break apart chicken tenders with a fork. Turn heat to high and cover. Cook amount of biscuits you want as directed on pkg.
Split biscuits and pour chicken mix over top.

Thanks for the recipe! I will definitely try it soon! I knew that Laura was your daughter. She seems like a real sweetie! I started visiting her through you! I laughed and laughed at her poor V.S. blog post!

I swear this roast turkey done button attached to my tummy has popped out at this point - but still no blessing #3 yet - so a waddling I go - albeit slower and slower ~ Ahem!!!!

Have a blessed day!
