Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

All moms know any meal you can do in your slow cooker is a good meal.  This recipe takes only minutes to put together but you'd never suspect that from how it tastes. Made with canned soup and frozen vegetables, it could easily be altered to use fresh veg from the farmer's market or garden.

Best served over warm biscuits, either frozen or home-made.

2 cans cream of chicken with herb soup
1 1/2 cups chopped and peeled raw carrot (or baby carrots cut in half)
2 cups red skinned or new potatoes chopped into cubes
1 bag frozen peas
1 medium onion, diced
1 lb boneless chicken breasts or thighs, chopped into 1" chunks
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
salt and pepper

Combine soup, carrots, milk, herbs, potatoes, onion and chicken in your slow cooker
Cook on low for about 7 hours
30 minutes before serving, stir in frozen peas

Serve over warm biscuits

The herbs can be changed a bit to suit, but do go well with this recipe.

If you can't find cream of chicken with herb soup, plain cream of chicken works well too.
