Easy Slow Cooker Chicken & Gravy

 am a huge fan of crock-pot 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.  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 Slow Cooker Chicken & Gravy

This Crock Pot 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. If you are doing gluten-free or keto, I think this would be great over cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash.

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 gravy is the BEST part of the whole recipe!

  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!!

  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.

  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.

  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! 🙂
