This week we will be sharing with you oodles and oodles of slow cooker recipes! Just in time for crisp evenings and short days. I love coming home to a warm slow cooker meal this time of year – so comforting, so easy. So stay tuned for more slow cooker recipes to come this week!
We all have those so-busy-I-want-to-pull-my-hair-out days, and this recipe is for just those occasions. You’ll come home to a homey, comforting, warm meal without lifting a finger.
My mom makes this dish and I seriously crave it everytime I go to visit. How funny is it that I request a meal that takes minutes when I don’t have to cook? I don’t know what it is – but this dish tastes so good out of my mom’s slow cooker! It also makes me feel like I’m at home.
Here’s what you’ll need – a few chicken breasts, 2 cans of cream of chicken, and one packet of chicken gravy mix. That’s all kids!
Spray your slow cooker with a little non-stick spray. Place chicken breasts inside and sprinkle with a little s and p.
Sprinkle with gravy mix.
Cover with cream of chicken.
Set your slow cooker to low and cook for 4-5 hours. Serve over rice…or mashed potatoes if you prefer. I like to set my rice cooker on delay so that the rice is cooked the same time the chicken is – so it really is a no fuss meal when we come home from a busy day. Before serving shred or cut chicken into bite sized pieces and return to gravy.
