Stick-to-Your-Ribs Chicken & Gravy Recipe (Only 4 Ingredients) by Donna John

Stick-to-Your-Ribs Chicken & Gravy Recipe (Only 4 Ingredients)

Yes, fresh is always best, but sometimes you just need a quick meal with lots of rich flavor. This easy slow-cooker chicken and gravy recipe a friend shared with me was the answer. This stick-to-your-ribs chicken dish has just a few ingredients and will fill you up.

To make this slow-cooked chicken dinner you will need boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a can of cream of chicken soup, dry gravy mix and sour cream. The four ingredients (plus a little water) cook in the slow cooker, then the chicken is shredded. So easy!

Ladle the chicken and gravy over egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice. I served it with a fresh garden salad drizzled with homemade sensation salad dressing. My husband really enjoyed it and took the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Recipe Notes

  • To reduce the sodium, use low-sodium gravy mix and the healthier version of cream of chicken soup.
  • You could use boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts.
  • For more flavor and freshness, throw in some fresh chopped herbs. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the chicken breast, cream of chicken soup, gravy mixes and water into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours.
  2. Shred the chicken with two forks. Add the sour cream. Season with black pepper, if desired. Stir, cover and cook for about 30 minutes more.
  3. Serve over egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice.
