To me simple foods are the most comforting  and this Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy couldn’t be simpler. It will remind you of supper at your grandmother’s house.

How To Serve

Shredded white meat chicken is absolutely swimming in a thick, rich, and flavorful gravy. Serve it over white rice or mashed potatoes with a side of green beans or peas for a family meal like no other. And don’t forget the Yeast Rolls!

How To Make Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy

Full recipe instructions can be found below.

The ingredients can be mixed together right in the crock pot so there are no dishes to clean for this meal. Just dump 2 packets of chicken gravy mix, a can of condensed chicken soup, 1 3/4 cups water, and some black pepper and garlic powder in the crock pot and stir.

Add the chicken, place the lid on top, and set to cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours and walk away.

  • Remove the lid from the crock pot, stir in 1/3 cup of sour cream to give the gravy some creaminess, and shred the chicken. So easy!

Equipment Needed

You will need a 5 to 6-quart or slightly larger slow cooker. I love my Hamilton Beach 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker.

Should I Cook Chicken On High or Low?

When cooking boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker, I recommend using the LOW setting. Cooking them on HIGH can make them dry and chewy. Newer slow cookers tend to get much hotter than old ones and even the LOW setting cooks pretty hot. Your chicken may be done in less than 6 hours on LOW if you have a newer model.

How To Store

Leftovers reheat well if you have any. Store for 4 to 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in a microwave.

  1. Delicious and easy meal that my whole family enjoyed. Other than adding some red pepper (we like spicy) we stuck to the recipe.

  2. Michelle Massocco

    this is like the shortcut to homemade chicken n biscuits! I love it! we just throw the biscuits on top of mashed potatoes then load on the yummmy chicken n gravy and no one knows the difference here! 🙂

  3. I was a bit skeptical at first, but I added some garlic salt. And it really set the dish off. My family love this meal. I just say yes.

  4. I am so excited to taste this recipe. My crock pot is cooking now and it smells delicious 😍. I even added a touch of my own creamy Alfredo sauce. I am not normally a gravy girl so I added my own touch. I am excited for some creamy chicken. Thank you, this is now my go to recipe for shredded chicken.

  5. Thank you for easy “stick your ribs” recipe. Very flavorful dish, perfect hot meal for a chilly night here in western WA . I did serve over rice, but I think my many leftovers will go good into a stovetop stuffing casserole for next night dinner! All other reviewers are correct gravy is thin but isn’t going to stop me from sharing or saving this recipe.

  6. i don’t do gravy meals too often, but want to make this, does the gravy thicken somehow or does it stay that watery?

  7. Just made this tonight! Very good. Didn’t do garlic powder. Did minced garlic. Tasted just as good I’m sure!

  8. To the lady who said this was bland learn to season your food!!
    This was delicious! I used Herbs De Provence, garlic powder, salt n pepper to taste and my whole family loved it. I will definitely be making this again.

  9. Can I cook the chicken ahead of time and put it in the crockpot after ? I’m doubling the recipe. If I do cook the chicken first how long in the crockpot will I have to cook it !

  10. For my family size I’d need to double the recipe and possibly cook on high. Any idea how long to cook for high (double recipe)? If cooked on low but doubled would the time be the same? Also, what are your thoughts of adding carrots, celery and onions in the beginning?

    1. Francesca Duke

      I would say about the same time maybe add an hour or so to be safe and I was thinking the same thing about adding veggies. Idk about celery or onions unless you wanna go for a soup kinda meal but definitely could get away with adding carrots I think.

  11. Calvin Franklin

    Made this and definitely loved it! I seasoned and seared my chicken breasts before putting them in the croc pot. It’s always beast to sear all meats first for these types of recipes. Added finely chopped onions and mushrooms also. And you DEFINITELY need to season to your family’s preferred taste. As for the sodium, use low sodium products.

  12. Overall very good , I felt it was bland so I added herbs at the end .. just some Italian spices , salt , pepper , bay leaf and a good amount of garlic . My opinion , they should revise and say add more seasoning as desired especially for people who don’t cook .. love the added sour cream !!!! Great meal !!

  13. Leanna Wittmer

    Love this I have made it a few times now and my kids love it. We live in Hawaii and perfect recipe for comfort food on rainy days.

  14. Absolutely wonderful! I used a little corn starch to thicken the gravy and added mixed peas, carrots and corn once done. My kids loved it and it was so simple! Will make again!
