Chicken Stew and Biscuits (Slow Cooker)

Cottage Cheese Biscuits

We now have one more really good biscuit recipe to work with (and it’s really simple).  I’m all about the biscuits these days, apparently that’s why I got a picture of just the biscuits!  For the recipe of the biscuits in the picture, click here.  The only thing I did differently is use the food processor.

To see a video on how I make biscuits with the processor, click here.  For the recipe that goes with the video, click here.
