Looking for some good comfort food to keep you going? This one will cover you for brunch or for dinner!! Lots of tender chicken and meaty mushrooms in a delicious creamy homemade gravy/sauce! To top it all off let's keep it easy with a can of biscuits! A quick homemade meal for a family dinner or company for brunch.
You could easily use your own homemade biscuit recipe or even a quick and simple drop biscuit recipe to keep this totally from scratch.
I cooked this up in my Crock-Pot Casserole Crock (note <--affiliate link-->) which was perfect but you could also easily make it in another slow cooker.
Love it when my favorite creamy flavors come together for the perfect home-cooked meal!

Can you use biscuits biscuit dough instead of canned?
After an hour and a half, biscuits were still not done. Had to put in the oven to bake for another 15 minutes. Followed the directions, but mine was not “gravy”. It was more like soup. Not a hit with anyone in my family.
I'm so sorry to hear it didn't turn out to your satisfaction.
I found that lightly dusting the biscuits with flour and making them an 1/8 inch thick using a rolling pin that they turned out just fine.
After hour for biscuits, I put crock into oven under HI broil to brown the biscuits...it worked perfectly. This was a really good simple recipe. I didn't have the thyme or parsley, but S&P worked well. Will definitely be making again!!
Couldn't you just put the casserole crock in the oven to brown up the biscuits? I make a similar casserole to this where everything is cooked in a pot on the stove, then you pour it into a casserole dish, add the biscuits on top, and put in the oven for about 25 minutes to bake/brown the biscuits. Now that I have the casserole crock pot, I'd like to try my recipe in the casserole crock but since I like my biscuits more crispy, would probably finish it in the oven.
Yes, you can absolutely do that!
Just wondering how the biscuits brown?
They will lightly brown on top but not the same as if they were in the oven. If you let a little airflow in toward the end of cooking time it will help.
Can I use already cooked chicken?
Amy @ Slow Cooker Gourmet says
I am afraid it might dry out your chicken if you put it in already cooked. My recommendation is to make it in the slow cooker with uncooked chicken. If you had chicken already cooked up you could modify this for the oven, though I can't recommend time and temperature since I have only made this specific recipe in my slow cooker.
Could you substitute milk for the cream?
Yes, but you'd need to thicken more with flour or cornstarch (maybe 2 tablespoons to 2 tablespoons of liquid to create a slurry and stir it in with the milk)
This looks delicious, but I do have a question. How do would you make this in a regular crock pot? Thanks so much. 🙂
Hi Joann! You would do everything pretty much the same, the only difference would be in adding your biscuit topping. Depending on the size of your slow cooker, you might not fit as many biscuits on top. So, a little less biscuit to filling ration but otherwise, everything should work pretty much the same!
This was SUCH an easy and tasty meal! My husband and I both licked our bowls clean...and I promised him I'd make it again soon. In addition to the mushrooms I threw in some baby carrots, frozen corn and peas and it came together perfectly. I can't wait to make this again!
Sounds perfect! Love the additional veggies since it makes it such a complete meal. So glad you liked it 🙂
