Slow Cooker Chicken Breast with Gravy


Slow Cooker Chicken Breasts and Gravy is the ultimate comfort food. A simple frying pan recipe for tender chicken and delicious broth made with chicken broth cream.

Delicious and relaxing foods like Slow Cooker Creamy Lemon Chicken, smoked pork chops, and timeless dinner recipes. This southern classic will definitely warm your belly and heart.

This simple slow-cooked meal is sure to become a new recipe that your whole family will love. The soft and dense chicken thorn with mashed potatoes is the ultimate relaxing food. You can easily have a festive dinner throughout the year.

Delicious crooked chicken mixes with broth in just a few minutes and can be cooked for a long time. Throw everything into a slow cooker in the morning, and the only thing you should worry about is the side.

For both sides, I recommend simple vegetables such as mung beans. Put chicken and broth on mashed potatoes, white rice, or even thick Texas toast. You will taste a bunch of delicious fresh French bread (and suck any excess broth).

If you’ve been a long-time reader, or read other slow-cooked chicken recipes, you know that I generally don’t like putting boneless chicken breasts in the pan. In many previous articles, I cautioned against sticking to the chicken thigh bones.

The nice thing about this hilarious recipe, like Chicken Noodles, is that you can use boneless, skinless breasts, and you can expect soft chicken every time. Cream soup prevents jerky meat and is easy to cut.

For this chicken and stock broth, I use my creamy chicken soup recipe. If you want to use the canned version, replace a 10.5-ounce can of concentrated chicken cream. You can easily make chicken sauce from scratch with a quick recipe below.

Mix the gravy ingredients: Just a few ingredients, mixing them ahead in a bowl or in the insert is just a few seconds of effort.
Add chicken in whole: This will keep as much moisture as we can given the meat is so low in fat. Cutting in into chunks ahead of time will make the end result drier.
Shred minimally: When shredding or cutting you don’t have to shred the chicken too small or it’ll be like a filling versus a meal.
Meat: This simple dinner is great for whatever boneless, skinless meat you have on hand. You can easily substitute pork chops, turkey breasts, or chicken thighs for the chicken breasts.
Mushroom: Cream of Mushroom Soup is a tasty substitute for the chicken soup. For more of that earthy flavor, add diced brown mushrooms during the last 2 hours of cooking.
Broth: Give your gravy more chicken flavor and use chicken broth instead of water. You can also use beef broth to make more of a brown gravy.
Veggies: The last hour of cooking, stir in your favorite frozen veggies like peas and carrots to make this dish heartier and well rounded.
Gravy Mix: Instead of chicken gravy packets, use 4 tablespoons of the Chicken Gravy Mix below to make it completely homemade.

Homemade Chicken Gravy Mix:

3 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
Blend bouillon and seasonings in a food processor until fine. Sift into flour until well combined. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.


Place chicken and water into Instant Pot.
Cover with gravy mix, seasonings, and chicken soup. Do not stir.
Cover and set valve on sealing. Set for 15 minutes on manual high pressure.
Let pressure release naturally for 5-10 minutes, then turn valve to venting.
You may need to add a cornstarch slurry to thicken gravy since Instant Pots tend to release more liquid.


Serve: This will stay good in the slow cooker on warm for up 4 hours. If at room temperature, store after no more than 2 hours.
Store: Transfer Chicken and Gravy to an airtight container and store for up to 4 days in the fridge.
Freeze: Freeze this dish for up to 3 months. Cool completely and seal tightly. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
