Ingredients

    **1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
    *1 large onion, chopped
    *2 dried bay leaves
    *1/2 teaspoon pepper
    *1 jar (18 oz) chicken gravy
    *2 cups celery, chopped
    *2 1/4 cups Heart Smart Bisquick® mix
    *2/3 cup 1% milk
    *1 bag (12 oz) Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables

Directions

1. Place chicken in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Top with onion, bay leaf, pepper and gravy. Place celery on gravy.

2. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.

3. About 30 minutes before serving, make and bake 8 biscuits using Bisquick mix and milk as directed on package.

4. Meanwhile, gently stir frozen vegetables into chicken mixture. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook 15 minutes. Remove bay leaf.

5. For each serving, split biscuit and place in soup bowl or tart pan. Spoon about 3/4 cup chicken mixture on top of biscuit.

Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

    To make it even more healthy and lower is sodium for my hubby. I make my own chicken gravy with no salt chicken boullion and some cornstarch. It worked fine! It was yummy too. - 8/15/09

    AMAZING! I've made this one twice now. The first time I made it "as is" and just added salt. 2nd time we made it with refrigerated biscuit dough. Both times were superb! - 10/9/08

  • I don't think the gravy is counted in the calories or fat... sorry to be a downer everyone but if you look at the ingredients it says "chicken gravy... 100.00" but it doesn't say 100 what. Just wanted to let you know... - 10/11/08

    The gravy is counted. I had to convert the ounces because the recipe calculator wouldn't accept the ounces. I use HEINZ chicken gravy and checked that with the calculator to assure the nutritional numbers matched, and the do.
