The Crock Pot is my go-to kitchen appliance when I am in need of some good ol’ comfort food. I am ready for cooler weather and warm meals.

This Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy is an easy comforting family favorite meal. I serve the chicken and gravy over a heaping scoop of buttery mashed potatoes with a side of buttery roasted carrots or Southern-style green beans. Don’t forget a buttermilk biscuit to soak up that gravy too. YUM! Even the smell of this cooking is comforting.

Chicken mashed potatoes and gravy is one of those meals my kids will request after a fun day playing outside in the winter.

Here are some of my favorite Crock Pot recipes that we make over and over.

Ingredient for Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy

How to Make Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy

First, place chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Next mix together the chicken broth and gravy mix packets. Pour the mix over the chicken in the crock pot. 

Then, cover and cook on high for 4 hours. Once it has finished slow cooking take two forks and pull apart the chicken. The chicken should be fork-tender. Stir the pulled chicken and the gravy to get it nicely mixed together. 

Take a heaping serving spoonful and serve it over mashed potatoes and a side of veggies.

Instant Pot

Mary commented that she had success with this recipe in the Instant Pot:

I have made this in our Instant Pot almost weekly! Same amounts, just use the pressure cook method for 12 minutes. Natural release and then open and shred per earlier directions. An absolute family favorite! Made it with Instant Pot mashed potatoes too and green beans. Dinner done in roughly 30 and only 2 pots to throw in the dishwasher 🙂

High vs. Low setting

I have not tried this recipe on Low. On low chicken takes 5-6 hours to cook and turn out fork-tender. If you try this recipe on low please share your results in the comments.

Here are some of the comments left for cooking this recipe on low:

Made this for the first time tonight and did it on low instead of high. Cooked three fairly thick chicken breasts on low for 6 hours. Was delicious! And chicken shredded super easy. Did have to do a little corn starch slurry to thicken gravy st the end but it was perfect and delicious. – Shandra

 

I used frozen chicken breasts and cooked it on low for 6.5 hours. It was great!!! The gravy was good and a good consistency. – Julie H.

  1. I have never worked with the jarred gravy before so unfortunately I don’t know! I would guess it wouldn’t work because you need the 2 cups liquid to cook the chicken and get it fork tender. If you decide to try it please come back and let me know how it turned out.

  2. I made this today and it’s soo good. I love the fact there is no cream of soup as an ingredient. I stay away from making crockpot recipes with cream of soups.

  3. Hi Kacie,
    No. Just mix the two gravy packets with the chicken broth and pour over the chicken.
    I will update the recipe card to clarify.

  4. Terrific recipe! Since Thanksgiving this year was just my husband and me, at 7am shortly after he gets home from work I substituted this for the traditional turkey. Served on the buttery mashed potatoes with cornbread stuffing (Stove Top) canned green beans, cranberry sauce and fresh crescent rolls it made a wonderful Thanksgiving meal in only 30 minutes or so. I think I enjoyed this more than the usual family feast that takes days of work and preparation. Thank you for this terrific recipe.

  5. Will this work with left it chicken that been cooked in crock pot already? I have some left over chicken already from cooking in crock pot yesterday Will it work if chicken already cooked

  6. It’s at the grocery store in a dry packet with all the other mixes. Ask your grocer where dry packet mixes are. You’ll be surprised what’s there.

  7. Living in South Africa we do not have some of the dried ingredients you talk about I do not no the equivalent

  8. I just cook the chicken in the broth and then remove the cooked chicken and thicken the broth with 2 TBS. cornstarch dissolved in a little cold water. Just stir it in and cook on high until thickened, stirring continually so it does not lump up.

  9. I have once and have been meaning to retest . If you try it don’t do a quick release. It was a mess!

  10. First I wanted to say this recipe sounds super amazing and super simple!!! Kudos on that; I did wonder if I could use the country gravy packs instead of the chicken or turkey gravy? If anyone has tried this please let me know how it has turned out I love the sound of the original recipe 🙂 my bf wanted me to try it with the country gravy as well 🙂.

  14. Thank you so much Mary! I am going to quote your comment in the blog post. I tried it twice in the instant pot and it was to watery. I must have been cooking it too long.

    Please do – I even double the entire thing when friends are over and it still works well – same timing with double the ingredients. FWIW, I have never made this in the crock pot so the Instant Pot version may be a thinner gravy but we love it!!! Mine looks like the pic too – I am actually making it tonight and will send to you 🙂

  16. Awesome thanks so much! I will have to try it again in the Instant Pot. Maybe a couple weeks after Thanksgiving since I will be in Turkey & Gravy heaven!

  17. Hi Angie,
    My only thought would be that the carrots when cooked will add moisture and this may prevent the gravy from thickening up.

    This was a hit tonight!!!!! Family loved it!! So easy. I did add corn starch at end (mixed the corn starch in a little bit of cold water first, as per corn starch directions) and it wasn’t perfect.
    This recipe will now be a regular dinner. Thank you for posting!!

    This recipe will now be a regular dinner. Thank you for posting!!

  20. Making this as we speak! I’m so excited to taste it. Always been a lover of chicken, chicken gravy, and mashed potatoes. I changed up the recipe a smidge I added onion and garlic and some spices. Will let everyone know how it tastes! Thanks for the recipe! ❤️

  21. 5 stars
    This was amazing!! At first I was skeptical when I saw how few of ingredients, but it was so so good! I did thicken the gravy on the stovetop. I mixed 2Tbsp water to 2Tbsp cornstarch well, and added. Perfect!

  22. 5 stars
    It was reallyyy good. Made it tonight. I did season the chicken first with garlic and onion powder and parsley. I also double the gravy amount because we love gravy lol. But was super good. Will make again☺️

  23. 5 stars
    Made this for the first time today. I added some seasoning to the chicken. The recipe is super easy and the chicken shredded easily. I will definitely make again!

    This did not work in the instant pot at all. The gravy mix kept burning to the bottom even though I mixed it into the chicken broth. So it wouldn’t cook because the instant pot kept turning itself off. It’s been 50 minutes since I started and the chicken still isn’t cooked because it has to keep re pressurizing

  25. 5 stars
    My son absolutely loves this! I am making it again today, but using frozen chicken breast (first time making it with frozen breast, but I am sure it will be just as good) It’s such an easy recipe.

  26. This us so easy and so very tasty…i followed the exact recipe as stated and it turned out perfectly….being from central Pennsylvania….a Pennsylvanis Durch comfort food is chicken and gravy over waffles….this worked out great the only thing I did additionally was after shredding the chicken, I added one large jar of hmestyle chicken gravy ….perfect taste and thickness….my new go to recipe..⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    The chicken broth made the gravy too salty for us. We switched the broth to water and it was perfect for us. A family favorite now!
