Crock Pot Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

I  am a great fan of crock pot cooking on busy days.  Especially when the end result is a delicious dish such as this fabulous chicken with creamy gravy!

It does make heavy use of some convenience foods, such as onion and garlic powders . . .

Italian garlic seasoning  . . .  and yes, cream of chicken soup, plus a bit of boullion powder (I use vegetable) and some chicken gravy powder to finish it off.

And while I am not a huge proponent of using a lot of processed foods as a rule, sometimes they come in quite handy. 

This really is delicious and the gravy is lovely and smooth.  The chicken is moist and tender.  Sometimes there is a danger of overcooking chicken in the slow cooker, but this cooks perfectly.

*Crock Pot Chicken with Creamy Gravy*
Serves 4

Tender, moist chicken breasts with a delicious gravy, cooked in the slow cooker.  Wonderful! 

2 TBS light olive oil
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp Italian garlic seasoning (can use dry italian salad dressing)
2 TBS chicken gravy powder
325g tin of condensed cream of chicken soup (1 10-3/4 ounce tin)
1/2 tsp vegetable or chicken bouillion powder
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Spray a slow cooker insert with cooking spray. Drizzle in the olive oil.  Arrange the chicken breasts in one layer in the slow cooker   Sprinkle evenly with the onion powder, garlic powder and Italian Garlic Seasoning/salad dressing.  Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.  Remove the cover. Stir in the boullion powder. Spread the chicken soup over the chicken breasts.  Cover and cook on high for a further 1 hours cooking time.  Remove the chicken pieces with some tongs to a platter and lightly tend.  Whisk together the chicken gravy powder and 240ml of boiling water (1 cup).  Whisk this into the juices in the slow cooker, to combine well.  Pour some of the gravy over the cooked chicken and serve.  Pass the remaining gravy at the table.  Mashed potato and a green veg go very well with this. 

Moist, tender and delicious, with not a lot of work involved.  You can't beat it!  Bon Appetit! 


  1. How you come up w/ a post every day I'll never know! Kudos!!

    1. We need to eat every day Monique, and so I cook every day. Xoxo

  2. Did you use 4 breast halves? Not 4 whole breast’s, correct. Thanks

  3. Did you use 4 breast halves or 4 while breasts? Thanks
    Sorry if this posted twice!

    1. No problem. I used 4 single serving chicken breast fillets, so I guess you might call them halves. Hope this helps!
