Crockpot Chicken and Gravy Ingredients

Crockpot Chicken Gravy raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (10.75-ounce) can of cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (0.87-ounce) packets of chicken gravy mix
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-1½ cups water (if you prefer thicker gravy, use 1 cup of water, thinner gravy use 1½ cups)
  • ½ tablespoon Better than Bouillon Chicken Flavor
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half horizontally for easier cooking (about 1 pound)
  • Green onions, sliced for garnish

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHICKEN GRAVY MIX: You can use 2 tablespoons of powdered chicken and gravy mix in place of the 2 chicken gravy packets in this easy recipe.

BOUILLON: If you prefer, you can just smash up 2 chicken bouillon cubes in a Ziploc bag with the back of a spoon, and use this in place of the Better than Bouillon Chicken Flavor.

POTATOES OR RICE: I recommend serving your chicken and gravy over homemade mashed potatoes. It makes for a hearty and comforting meal. Serving it over a bed of brown rice or white rice is also a great option.
