I make recipes in the slow cooker at least twice a week such as Crockpot Chicken and Noodles. Between my job and shuttling kids to various activities, I often don't have a lot of time to spend cooking dinner. With my crockpot, I just throw in the ingredients and open it up in a few hours to a yummy meal.
What makes this Crockpot gravy chicken even more impressive is that the soup and gravy keeps the chicken moist while not overwhelming the chicken with gravy.
How to make this crockpot dinner
In a large bowl combine the cream of chicken soup and one envelope of chicken gravy mix. The packet of chicken gravy I used was 1.67 oz. If you are using a smaller size packet, consider using two to get close to that amount.

I get my chicken from ButcherBox, which delivers the healthiest, highest quality meat while causing as little harm as they can to the environment.
