I made this recipe on 10/24/10 for 3 events Sharon123's" Cook-A-Thon "event @Food.com,also for Sharon123's" Cook-A-Thon " and Crockpot/Rice Cooker event @KK's site.I didn't have any chicken broth, so 14 1/2 of water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes were used. The parts of chicken that were used was a boneless, skinless breast,and a very large bone in thigh.Since there was just the two of us, my small 1.5 quart crockpot was perfect for this recipe.For the smaller crockpot, the chicken took about 6 hours on low to cook through.For the gravy, I took about 1 1/2 cups of the broth and brought it to a boil in a small saucepan, added the gravy mix and whisked until the desired thickness was reached.After tasting, all the seasoning that needed to be added was a bit of black pepper. I served the chicken/gravy over mashed potatoes with lima beans as a side.We both thought it was very good,and I really enjoyed the simplicity of this recipe. And come on, "How can you go wrong with a crockpot and pre-packaged gravy mix ?".This will be made again and again. Thanks so much for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
Great go-to recipe for those nights that I know I won't have time to fuss with dinner preps. I used a mushroom gravy mix and boneless chicken breasts and cooked it for 4 hours. Served it with diner's Fettuccine All'alfredo and broccoli! It was a huge hit with the whole family! So glad I tagged you in 123 Hits.
Very good I found that water was definitely needed though and found reduced sodium chicken broth was our preference. Will make again!
Simple and brilliant! The chicken gravy I used had a good bit of salt so I'm glad I didn't add any (I did slightly salt and pepper the bone-in chicken I used.) I cooked this for 5-6 hours on high in my crock pot and I think it could cook for 8 hours on low just fine. My son loved this and I loved it since it was so easy and economical!
Good and easy! Great over egg noodles. Would probably serve 4-6 for my family.
Easy, Cheap, and Delicious!
Super easy and a dependable quick fix! Made with Ruth's Chris Sweet Potato Casserole on the side made it seem very festive! Thanks for posting Sharon. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
First time using Crockpot! Used boneless chicken breasts and shouldn't have cooked it for 8 hours as they became a bit dry. Next time will cook it for 4-5 hours. Used mushroom gravy mix - so easy! Thanks Sharon! :)
This was a good and easy recipe to put together in the morning. I used boneless chicken breasts and cooked for 4 hours. When I got home, a measured out the broth and made the gravy in just a few minutes. We did add a good bit of salt and pepper as we thought it needed seasoning but maybe that was because of the gravy mixture I used.
This was so easy to make. I'd never thought of using the chicken broth in the crockpot to mix with a gravy packet. I served the gravy over baked potatoes. This one is a keeper thank you. Made for Zaar Tag 2006
