Creamy Crock Pot Chicken, Broccoli & Peas over Biscuits

Woah what a title but man was it delicious!  I am a fan of anything you can throw in a crock pot and then 6 - 8 hours later, viola dinner is ready!  Last Saturday we were going to see Superman and I wanted to make sure we had a good dinner before heading out to a nearly three hour long movie, but I also didn't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen - so I set out to find a good crock pot meal.  Now my crock pot doesn't normally make many appearances during the summer months but sometimes it is a great alternative to cooking in a small kitchen sans A/C - the crock pot doesn't release nearly as much heat as the oven or stove.  ISo  found this recipe from Kaitlin in the Kitchen and modified it slightly - I added peas and served it over biscuits instead of rice.  Overall the dish was awesome - easy to make and full of veggies!  This recipe is also very similar to another recipe I recently tried - Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie!

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken, Broccoli & Peas
3 chicken breasts
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of cheddar soup
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup lite sour cream
1 bag (steamable) peas
1 bag (steamable) broccoli
In the crock pot whisk together the cream of chicken soup, cream of cheddar soup, chicken broth, salt and pepper ~ once mixed add the chicken and press down so it is covered ~ cook on low for 6-7 hour or high for 3-4 hours ~ once the chicken is cooked/time is up, remove the chicken and shred it ~ add the sour cream to the cooked soup/broth mixture and whisk together ~ steam the peas and broccoli then add to the mixture ~ once the sour cream and veggies are incorporated return the shredded chicken and allow to heat for a couple of minutes ~ serve over rice, egg noddles or biscuits!
 It was so good that I forgot to take a picture until I was almost finished!
I promise there is a biscuit under there somewhere!
