Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie Stew! Oh MY!

WARNING!  If you do not have SELF CONTROL, then do NOT make this if you have trouble stopping with one serving . . . not helping, serving! 

I got the recipe off of and searched for slow cooker chicken recipes. 

I changed the recipe a bit; so I am going to give it to you as I made it.  You can adjust and make it your own as I did; but it's super great and super easy!

3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts cut into small bites
2 1/2 medium red potatoes, quartered
1/2 cup baby carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery
1 tsp Chicken Base (I thought it was too salty, so the next time I fix this I will not add it. Chris thought it was perfect . . . so it depends on your salt taste.)
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
Black Pepper
16 ounces frozen mixed vegetables

Combine chicken, potatoes, carrots, celery, soup, chicken base, garlic salt, black pepper in crock pot.  Cook on high for 4 hours.

Stir in frozen mixed veggies into the slow cooker and cook 1 hour more.

The recipe showed serving it over biscuits; well I didn't have any and WAS NOT going to make them from scratch (would have defeated the purpose of crock pot cookin' to me!); so I pulled out good ole Pillsbury Crescents! 

It was FANTASTIC!  Yes, biscuits would have been better; but wow! 

I have been really trying to watch my eating; and started to not even eat this; but I had a very small portion with one crescent and am full!  It does not take much to satisfy; promise!

Hope you enjoy!
