Easy Slow Cooker Chicken & Gravy

I am a huge fan of crockpot meals, especially this time of year.  I don’t know about you, but I am really busy during the holiday season.  The last thing I want to worry about is dinner.   This recipe is super easy and tastes great. Chicken slow-cooked in chicken gravy mix, cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth. Serve the shredded chicken over rice and dinner is done. I used Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, and dinner was ready in less than 5 minutes after walking in the door!  Can’t beat that any time of year!

How To Make Chicken & Gravy in the Crockpot

This Crockpot Chicken & Gravy is SUPER easy to make. Simply place the chicken in the slow cooker, Season the chicken with salt and pepper. I sometimes use garlic salt or seasoned salt instead of plain salt. Once the chicken is seasoned on both sides, whisk together the gravy packets and soup. Pour the soup over the chicken and cook.

Once the chicken is cooked, shred it with two forks right in the slow cooker. We like to serve the chicken over white rice. Feel free to use cooked brown rice, mashed potatoes, or egg noodles. Heck, you could even serve this over some Texas toast for a chicken & gravy sandwich. If you are eating gluten-free, I think this would be great over cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash.

I used chicken gravy mix. Feel free to use any packet of gravy mix you prefer. If you want a thinner gravy, add about 1/2 to 1 cup of water or chicken broth to the soup mixture. Adding some water/chicken broth is a great way to stretch the gravy. The slow cooker gravy is the BEST part of the whole recipe!

      1. My experience is it just kind of dissolves but it wouldn’t hurt anything if you wanted to cut it off.

    1. Simple, easy and delicious. This was a big hit with my fiancé and he is a picky eater! I use one pack of HEB gravy and one pack of pioneer chickens and herbs gravy and cook for 6 hrs for maximum tenderness. Omg yum!!!

  1. If you want to feed 6-8 people do you just double everything? This looks so good and sounds so simple that it kind of scares me!!

      1. This recipe is simple to follow and absolutely delicious. I make mashed potatoes and veggies on the side and even the kids can’t get enough. Kid approved. Mom approved!

        1. Me too grandkids love it with mashed potatoes and string beans on side. Mima approved kids approved. 👍🏻

        1. I’ve never made this in the oven, so I can not say how it turns out. I am sure you could, but I do not have a time or temperature for you.

      2. If you double the recipe including the amount of chicken would you still cook it on low for 4 to 6 hours?

        1. Yes, anytime I cook chicken in the crockpot (Which is a lot!) I cook the chicken the same amount of time, does not matter the amount of chicken I am cooking. The only time that it would matter obviously is if the chicken didn’t all fit in the crockpot comfortably…..

        1. Keep in mind there is moisture that will come out of frozen veggies. May thin gravy. I personally would cook first then drain liquid before adding.

    1. Stupid question…I want to make this but I don’t have gravy mix. Only have a jar of turkey gravy. You think I could substitute? Or wait and go to store.

      1. I’ve only made this with the dry packet of mix. I can not say how it works with liquid gravy. You can certainly give it a try, but it won’t be like the recipe in the photos.

        1. Hi. I used the jar chicken gravy , that is what I had on hand. It turned out good. Thanks for the recipe. I’m going to try the dry next time. I figured I would comment. Just because. Thanks again for the recipe.

  2. I just tried this recipe for dinner and it was both delicious and simple!! My favorite kind of recipe. I have tried a number of your recipes and I'm never disappointed! I enjoy following your blog and look forward to new recipes everyday.

    1. So I am in the process of cooking this. I only had 1 pack of chick gravy on hand so I substituted a Turk gravy pack. I Plan on adding frozen pees & carrots at the end then serving over white rice. I’m anticipating good results! lol Thank you for the share! I will update 😉

    2. I followed the recipe to a T the first time. Although it was good, I felt it needed a little more flavor. The next time I tried this with one packet of chicken gravy and one packet of Turkey gravy. I also added about a half a packet of dry ranch dip, a little tarragon, uncle Chris’s seasoning and a can of veggies. Then served over orzo pasta! Delish!

  3. Kerry – I did mix the cooked rice in with the sauce after the chicken cooked, but you can just serve the chicken and gravy over the rice if you prefer.

    1. I used pack of Turkey gravy mix, and a dry pack of onion soup mix. I’ll let you know how it turns out. It’s all I had on hand.

      1. My husband has done onion soup mix. It’s just a different taste. Without the onion mix it just makes it more mild. Just depends on the taste you like and I believe the onion mix tenderize the chicken more.

  4. Just found this recipe, which looks lovely.

    Kind of a dumb question, but is the rice going into the crockpot or are you serving the contents of the crock pot on a bed of rice.

    The picture looks like the rice is mixed in the sauce, so I wasn't sure.

  5. muststartover – you could use frozen chicken. Just cook it a little longer – 7-8 hours. Perfect for a work day.

  6. Shannon – I used boneless skinless chicken breasts. Do not cook them before you put them in the crockpot. The crock pot will cook them for you. This made enough for 2-3 people – just depends on how big the chicken breast are.

  7. This looks delicious! These may be silly questions, but I'll ask anyway 🙂

    Do you cook the chicken breasts first? I assume these are boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

    Also, how many servings is this good for? thanks! 🙂
