Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy

Sharing is caring!

A wonderful Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy dinner that will remind you of Thanksgiving dinner when served over mashed potatoes and served with a side of instant stuffing.

Today’s I’m sharing a recipe from Sarah over at The Magical Slow Cooker. If you haven’t made this recipe yet…you need to!

Chicken, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy

I’ve had my eye on this Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy for a little while and would drool every time I saw it. I knew it would be delicious because…it’s Sarah! Seriously everything she makes is Ahhhhh-mazing!!!

What drew me to this recipe? Umm, it’s like a mini Thanksgiving feast without ALL the work! (Hello? I may not be the sharpest tool in the tool shed…but I’m not the dullest either! Lol)

If I can get all the comfort and flavor of Thanksgiving and not have a nervous breakdown in the kitchen or heat stroke…or have to wash a million dishes…then I’m in!!!

This recipe is so yummy and so easy…Sooooo…let me share this delicious recipe with you.

In a medium size bowl, mix together 2 packets of dry chicken gravy mix (0.87 ounce packets), 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 and 3/4 cup of water

This next step is REALLY tricky! It takes massive culinary skill. I’m going to share with you how I did master this part of the process.

The recipe calls for 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper. When it comes to 1/8 of a teaspoon, I don’t even mess with measuring spoons. (I’m just THAT good) Nope… I just figure a few good shakes of the pepper shaker will about cover it.

Y’all know how I love my coarse black pepper from Costco. I grabbed that giant shaker, and with my immeasurable “chef like” talent…. opened the wrong side of the cap and gave two healthy shakes…. Yep! It takes REAL talent as a cook to screw up a recipe like this! (Aren’t y’all glad you follow me for my cooking wisdom…you’re rethinking that decision right about now…aren’t ya?)

 I’ve decided that rather than writing a cook book I’m going to write “How to open a spice container for Dummies”! I have a feeling it will be a huge success… and I’ll be writing what I know!

Thankfully I was able to scrape off all that “pepper” since, as my daughter put it…it was on top of all that “squishy” condensed soup! It’s a good thing, or this recipe was getting a SERIOUS name change!

Once you have toned down the pepper… mix all those ingredients together to from a thick gravy.

Place your boneless skinless chicken breast in your slow cooker.

Cover your chicken with the gravy mixture. Cover and bake on low for 8 – 10 hours. That’s it! Easy right? This is a recipe even the youngest chick at your Nest can make! This is a GREAT college student recipe!

Once the chicken is cooked you can serve it as is, or do like I did, and shred it a bit with your potato masher or two forks.

I decided to follow Sarah’s lead and serve this with mashed potatoes on top of a slice of white bread covered with all that creamy luscious chicken and gravy.

I wasn’t too sure about mashed potatoes on top of bread. Seemed a little strange to me. Boy was I wrong! This is AMAZING with mashed potatoes, on top of bread, smothered in this amazing chicken and gravy!

This reminded me of a hot open-faced sandwich. Something that grandma’s all overused to make. Whatever you like to call it…we can all agree on one thing at this Nest…it’s delicious!!! 110% PURE comfort food!

I served ours with prepared instant stuffing mix and corn. The gravy that is made when this chicken is cooking is jammed packed full of flavor and is so rich and creamy! A carb lovers paradise.

I had intentions of adding a wonderful big tossed garden salad, but the troops vetoed it and begged to dig in. Truly an amazing recipe.

I’m thinking you could even make a layered casserole out of this with stuffing, corn, potatoes and then all that chicken and gravy goodness on top! However, you choose to serve it, it will be outstanding.

If you are cooking impaired… this is a recipe for you. As I mentioned earlier… This is even a great recipe for the young cooks at your Nest.

 With five simple ingredients, and the crock pot doing the cooking…in no time you have an amazing family dinner. One the whole family will love!

Hi! Going to make this tomorrow. There are no instructions on how to store the leftovers. I'd like to freeze leftovers for a later time. Can you freeze cream soups in a recipe??

Hi Debra! Yes you can freeze this and reheat it with no issues. Hope this helps. Norine

Oh my goodness this is SO EASY and SO DELICIOUS! I made it exactly as written and it is to die for! I made Stove Top stuffing on the side and added 1 tsp poultry seasoning and diced celery to give it a little extra. Next time I want to try using Cream of Chicken and Mushroom soup. That might be tasty. But this recipe is going into my files just as printed above.

Hi Wendy! I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe! I have it on the "Menu" this week. It's such a great comfort dish. Thanks so much for sharing your insights and giving me ideas of twists for this recipe. Love that. Have a GREAT week! Norine

Just a note. I watched the video, read the recipe and all the comments. The video calls for cream of mushroom soup and the recipe and comments all say cream of chicken soup. I personally would use the mushroom soup because I think it has more flavor. Looks so good I wish I could just make the picture come alive do I could eat it. Thanks.

Thank you for catching my mistake. I think you could use either and I agree I love the idea of the cream of mushroom soup for flavor. Have a great day! Norine

[…] months ago I stumbled upon a version that is pretty much identical to what I do on the cooking blog Norine’s Nest. And I can also add that I always serve it atop some homemade whipped potatoes and with a side of […]

Hi Taurie!

That's a great question! I'm not sure how helpful I will be because I always cook this in the slow cooker. I would image on low in a dutch oven for 2-3 hours? I don't know if this helps at all or not. Sorry. I do appreciate you coming by and I hope you try the recipe in your Dutch Oven and let me know how it turns out. Happy Nesting and stay safe! Norine
