Rich gravy makes this a classic comfort food, with chicken slow-cooked to tender perfection and served over hot biscuits. My family can’t get enough of this meal. —Kathy Garrett, Browns Mills, New Jersey

  • 2 envelopes chicken gravy mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 large onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut up and skin removed
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tube (6 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits


  1. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the gravy mix, water, wine, parsley, bouillon, garlic and pepper. Add the carrots, onion and chicken. Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender, 3-4 hours. Remove chicken to cutting board. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; discard bones. Cut meat into bite-sized pieces; return to slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour or until thickened.
  3. Meanwhile, bake biscuits according to package directions. Place them in soup bowls; top with stew.
