How to Make It
In a large Crock Pot, Cook the following on High for 1 hour:
- Chicken Chunks
- Potato Chunks
- Diced Onion
- Cream of Chicken Soup
- Chicken broth
- Season to taste (Salt & Pepper - I also use Johnny's seasoning or Trader Joe's "21 seasoning salute")
Turn the pot down to medium, Add Carrot and Celery Chunks and cook for about 4 hours.
Cut the raw biscuits into dumpling sized pieces (about an inch, again to your preference) If you prefer, you can use your own scratch biscuit recipe. I use the premade biscuits for convenience when camping.
Once the stew seems finished (i.e. chicken is cooked and potatoes/carrots are tender) add the raw biscuit pieces in a single layer on the top - do not stir. For best results the stew should be bubbly hot.
Let the biscuits cook for about 15 minutes and then stir-in the frozen peas. Turn off the pot and let sit with the lid off until the stoup is at an edible temp the peas will cook quickly and aid in the cooling process.
