Chicken and Gravy in the Slow Cooker - Guest Post by MiMi

     I really try to very what we eat for our weekly family dinner.  With the weather warming up a bit I thought I would make one last slow cooker full of comfort food before we get the grill out.  Nothing says comfort food like gravy and biscuits.  When I came across this recipe for chicken and gravy.  I also found a recipe for buttery biscuits that I thought would be great underneath.  We did not care for the biscuits as much as we do my regular biscuit recipe. So I made some noodles to go along with it instead. The chicken and gravy is really good.   I'm sure I will be making it again.  Kristie has already requested the recipe, so I know this will be made by her also.  She said it's even better reheated the next day.
MiMi made some variations to the original recipe and everyone loved it.  The following is how she made her version.

Chicken and Gravy in the Slow Cooker


2 packages dry chicken gravy mix
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups water
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 T Lawry's chicken and poultry rub (or garlic, rosemary, salt and onion powder mixed)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 T olive oil

  1. Rub the chicken with the seasonings.  Brown in the olive oil in a skillet.
  2. In slow cooker, whisk together gravy mix, soup and water.  Add browned chicken breasts
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours
  4. Shred chicken to desired consistency with forks
  5. Turn off heat and stir in sour cream
