We took all the flavors of classic pot pie and made it super-easy to pull together in the crock pot. Look for ready-to-bake biscuits with minimal ingredients to keep it healthy. Biscuits tend to be high in sodium, so we advise only half a biscuit per serving if you're watching your salt intake.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until well browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Reduce heat to medium and repeat with another 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining chicken. Arrange the chicken in an even layer in the slow cooker.

  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup flour over the mushrooms and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute more. Add broth and use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook, stirring, until hot and bubbling, about 2 minutes. Pour the mixture over the chicken in the slow cooker. Stir in carrots and onion.

  • Cover and cook until the chicken is falling-apart tender, 4 hours on High or 7 to 8 hours on Low.

  • Meanwhile, bake biscuits according to package directions.

  • When the chicken is ready, stir in peas. Cover and cook until the peas are heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more. Season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Halve the biscuits and top each serving with half a biscuit. (Save the remaining biscuit halves for another use.)
