Here is today's recipe:

Slow Cooked Chicken and Biscuits

2 cups chopped round red potato (2 medium)
1 cup coarsely chopped carrot (2 medium)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery (1 medium)
1 4 ounce can (drained weight) sliced mushrooms, drained
2 garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca, crushed
1 pound bone-in chicken thighs, skinned
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas
1 ounce cream cheese, cut up
Cheesy Biscuits


1. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine potato, carrot, onion, celery, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle tapioca over the mixture. Top with chicken thighs. Pour broth over all.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3-1/2 hours.
