I have made this twice now, and it is a family (comfort food) favorite. I do add fresh diced up carrots and celery (abt.a cup and a half of each), as well as fair amount of fresh minced sage and rosemary (abt. a stalk or two of each. I season 6 chicken breasts (salt/pepper & thyme) on both sides before putting in crock pot and use chicken broth instead of water to cover chicken/onion/veggies. I use one can cream of chicken and one can of cream of celery. Lastly, as others have suggested, I don't put the biscuits in (used only one can of buttermilk biscuits, and cut biscuits into 6-8 parts each) until the last hour and half, to two hours, of cook time. One last thing... I do not shred the chicken...I pull it out and cut into chunks, then put it back in right before I add the biscuits. So good and perfect for cold winter nights. Adding the fresh ingredients is so worth the extra effort (just put herbs in a mini cuisinart to chop) and cut carrots and celery the night before. The flavor is sooooo great with these extra touches. If you use 6 pcs. of chicken, this meal can feed 6 adults, 2 kids and still have leftovers!
