Easy Crockpot Chicken Recipe

One of our favorite pot roast recipes is the Mississippi Pot Roast. It has such great flavors! We make it all the time. I started wondering what it would taste like with chicken. My curiosity got the best of me, so I threw everything in the crockpot and patiently waited to taste the results. OMG! SO yummy!!

How to Make Slow Cooker Mississippi Chicken

This chicken is SUPER easy to make. Place some chicken in the crockpot. Sprinkle the chicken with ranch and au jus gravy. Add a stick of butter and some pepperoncini peppers. Cover and cook. Shred the chicken and enjoy!

  • Can use any cut of chicken you prefer – breasts, thighs, or tenders.
  • Here is our recipe for Homemade Ranch Dressing: https://www.plainchicken.com/homemade-ranch-dressing-mix/
  • Can add more pepperoncini peppers. I like to add some of the juice from the jar.
  • Can substitute banana peppers for pepperoncini peppers. Banana peppers are mild, sweet, and tangy.
  • Is Mississippi Chicken spicy? No. Pepperoncini peppers are very mild and slightly sweet peppers.
  • You can freeze leftover chicken for a quick meal later.
  • If you are short on time, you can cook this chicken on HIGH for 2 or 3 hours.

How to Serve Mississippi Chicken

We served the chicken over some rice. It was so good. You could also serve the chicken over mashed potatoes. Make sure to pour some of the yummy juices over the chicken and rice/potatoes. This makes a lot of chicken. I froze the leftovers for a quick meal later. We are planning on eating the leftovers on a sandwich bun with a little provolone cheese. YUM!

  1. What could be substituted for Au Jus Mix? I have several packets of McCormick Grill Mates marinade powdered mixes. I just am not good at imagining and trying things out together. Suggestions from anybody greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    1. I would suggest that you follow the recipe. These specific ingredients are what make the flavor so awesome so there is no substitute in that regard. Using a slow cooker, you don't even need any liquid. I actually make this pot roast in my dutch oven so I do add a bit of beef broth, since the dutch oven does not produce liquid like the slow cooker. I also add potatoes (and carrots) to the dutch over as the potatoes will absorb a lot of the salt in the ranch and au jus. A lot of people say this meal is salty so that is how I came to alter the cooking technique.

  2. Stephanie, is it really necessary to cook the chicken that long? I know overcooked chicken and it messes with the texture.

  3. Awesome!! Thanks for sharing. Must try – I love a slow cooker meal, especially in the summer. But what's Au Jus "mix"? Is this a packet like taco seasoning or gravy?

  4. Always good to find a new recipe for chicken. Sounds delicious. Slow cookers are a great help, especially during summer when you want to cut down on the amount of heat in the kitchen.

  5. (I love the pot roast version of this! My friends that I've made if for do too!) I was wondering if there is a lot of juice in this after you cook the chicken. I was thinking of making a gravy with it before returning the shredded chicken to the pot. Thank you in advance.
