This Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy couldn't get any easier and it's SO good!  Plus, this recipe only calls for 4 ingredients!!

With the temperatures here flirting dangerously close to the triple digits and humidity that you can cut with a knife, I love being able to use my slow cooker to get a home-cooked meal on the table without having to heat up the kitchen too much.  This Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy is just that.  It’s a slow cooker adaptation of my Mom’s Chicken and Gravy and only calls for 4 ingredients!

I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts – because that’s what I had on hand – but you can use any chicken pieces you wish.  Serve this tender chicken and rich savory gravy with mashed potatoes or rice, add a simple veggie, and dinner is ready!  And leftovers are fantastic when you shred them up and make a French Dip style sandwich!  Y’all enjoy!  This Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy couldn't get any easier and it's SO good!  Plus, this recipe only calls for 4 ingredients!!

  1. Goodness how can this one not be good! Love using my crock pot in the summer. The humidity here is thick too….I try to stay in the AC as much as possible. Thanks for another great recipe!

  2. Hi,
    Well this was wonderful… I fixed it for lunch last week and my ‘gkids just loved it —hubby too.
    So one of my g’kids asked if she could have it for b’fast the next day…lol… I said no but you can have it again for lunch if you want…. she used a piece of bread to scrape her bowl !!
    I will make this again !

  3. Had this in the slow cooker all day yesterday. Took about ten minutes to prepare and the flavors were delicious. Just before dinner I made some fresh mashed potatoes to go with it. My wife loved it. The slow cooker is my new friend.

  4. This just hit the slowcooker and it already smells so good in here! Looking forward to the end result 🙂

  5. Just made this for the family. I normally cook for groups of over 130 people and needed to try it out, so,who better than the family to use as guinea pigs? It was wonderful. The gravy, though quite runny, kept the chicken moist and flavorful. The only thing I did different was I thickened the gravy with flour mixed in with a little bit of water and some of the cooked gravy, poured it back in to the crock pot for about an hour. Was wonderful! Would like to know how many servings you calculated for the recipe.

  6. Should I be using thawed chicken breasts???

  7. I would love to try this recipe, but unfortunately my husband doesn’t like onions. Do you have any suggestions for substituting the dried onion soup mix? Is there another dried soup mix I could use?

  8. One place says 6-8 hours, another 8-10. Which is it?

  9. Samantha Hall says:

    I made this last night. I did add a little cornstarch/water mixture after removing the chicken from the gravy to thicken it a bit. Then I served the gravy over biscuits and the chicken. Got high praise from the hubby! Thanks for another great recipe, Stacey!

  10. Nancy Larson says:

    can you use leg quarters? if so, any changes to the recipe?

  11. Sharon Hoffman says:

    Can I successfully use half water and half chicken broth for richer flavor?

  12. The sodium level with this recipe has to be through the roof

  13. Do you have nutrition information for this?

  14. Made this today and it was scrumptious! And so very easy! This is definitely a keeper recipe that I will use again and again! Thank you!

  15. Christie says:

    I only have one packet of brown gravy mix..will it still work?

  16. This would be awesome for beef chuck roast, too! YUM! Thanks!

  17. Stacey, I have to tell you that I tried this recipe last night and hubby and I absolutely loved it! It’s a keeper and going in the regular rotation. Thanks so much! 🙂

  18. Rusty Lillico says:

    Sorry, but after seven hours on low the chicken was done but it was still chicken au jus. -needed a quarter-cup of flour and 20 mins on the stove to turn it into gravy. Waiting now to see if it works for the family, but it sure does smell wonderful!

  19. We substituted Ranch dressing mix for the onion soup mix and loved this! Served on toast made with low carb bread so my husband could have it. He said it was the best low carb dish he’s had. Will definitely make it again!

  20. I made this for the first time last night. Everyone loved it. The only complaint was that it was salty. Will make again with less gravy.

    • You can also look for a low sodium gravy mix, which will help. Different brands have different amounts of salt. Glad you enjoyed it otherwise. 🙂

  21. Hi there. I don’t think this should be called a recipe. You’re basically just using someone else’s ( a giant corporation no less) by using packet mixes. What a waste of my time.

  22. @Louise, this is a section for comments pertaining to the recipe, not a sounding board, if you don`t have anything to say about the recipe(s), just griping about them, than DON`T make them, but yes, it does have ingredients from (BIG named Corp) but doesn`t a lot of recipes? A recipe may say use flour, do you go out and grind up wheat, corn or rye or whatever to make your flour? NO, you buy it from a store that has their name brand plastered all over the packaging. If people don`t like the recipe(s) than don`t make them, but this recipe is helpful and can give others an idea on how to do this and helps give more suggestions on different ingredients.
    Thank you Stacey, for these quick recipe(s) and loved your response to negative individuals who haven`t ever tried these recipe(s).

  23. HI Stacy, do u think it would be ok to use 1 packet each of brown gravy and a chicken gravy packet? I’m short one brown gravy n chicken is all I have! Should I chance it? Or do U think maybe just use the 1 packet? Thanks!
