Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy

When those chilly evenings have you craving something warm, hearty and nostalgic, it's time to break out the slow cooker for an easy, comforting meal. This slow cooker chicken and gravy recipe delivers downhome flavors with hardly any work on your part. Just a few basic pantry ingredients transform into tender, juicy chicken draped in rich, velvety gravy that coats every bite.

The simplicity of this recipe is part of what makes it so appealing. There's no need for fancy ingredients or complicated techniques here. All you need is some boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a can of basic cream of chicken soup, a couple packets of chicken gravy seasoning mix, water and black pepper. Gather those up, plus your trusty slow cooker, and you're halfway to hearty satisfaction!

Simply place the raw chicken breasts into the crock pot's insert and whisk together the soup, gravy packets, water and pepper until smooth. Pour that creamy gravy mixture over the chicken breasts, cover, and let it cook slowly for 6-8 hours on low heat. As it cooks, the chicken gradually becomes meltingly tender while the gravy thickens up into rich, savory perfection.

When you return to the kitchen later, all you need to do is use a couple of forks to shred that fall-apart chicken right in the slow cooker's saucy contents. This creates beautifully shreddable morsels coated in that velvety, decadent gravy. If you'd like the gravy a bit thicker, make a quick slurry of cornstarch and water to stir in at the end and cook a bit longer.

That's literally all there is to this nostalgic slow cooker chicken and gravy! At its most basic, you can simply ladle those shredded chicken-and-gravy contents over a pile of fluffy mashed potatoes, baked potatoes or buttermilk biscuits for pure, homestyle comfort food bliss. Steam or roast some fresh veggies on the side for a complete, nourishing meal.

Or get a bit creative and indulgent with some fun additions and variations! Crisp bacon bits, sliced mushrooms or sauteed onions can be stirred into that luscious gravy for extra savoriness. Sprinkle in some fresh or dried thyme, oregano or parsley for an herbal aroma boost. For a decadent twist, spoon the shredded chicken and gravy into soft white bread rolls for messy, satisfying sandwiches.

However you serve it up, this slow cooker chicken and gravy has that nostalgic, stick-to-your-ribs quality we all crave on chilly nights. There's something so cozy and restorative about tender, gravy-drenched chicken that feels like a warm hug. Yet this recipe is also incredibly low-effort and hands-off, thanks to your slow cooker doing the heavy lifting for you.

That effortless prep work is a game-changer for busy families looking to get a homemade, hearty dinner on the table with ease. Just a few minutes in the morning or afternoon, then set it and forget it until it's time to shred and serve later on. No hovering over the stove required! It's also ideal for serving a crowd at potlucks or gatherings where you want something universally beloved yet easy.

So if you find yourself longing for the comforting, nostalgic flavors of grandma's kitchen without all the labor involved, give this slow cooker chicken and gravy a try. With very basic ingredients and a hand's off crock pot method, you'll have a rustic, satisfying dinner ready to ladle into bowls and savor.
