Slow Cooker Upside-Down Chicken Pot Pie

I have found some crock pot Recipes for brad to make the days i work til 7pm, so that dinner is ready when i get home and neither one of us has to worry about it.
I tried to make my own biscuits to go with this recipe to try and cut some of the salt out of it, as they didn't turn out the greatest, maybe then will turn out better next time. But it was still very good and so simple to make.
