I’ve come to realize that my kids love any type of meat that has a gravy and can be served over mashed potatoes. I mean who doesn’t love it, because I know love gravy-smothered taters too. Some of our favorites include Pork Roast and Gravy and Chicken Fried Steak.

I’ve been finding a lot of chicken breasts on mark-down at Aldi lately, and I decided to try a chicken and brown gravy recipe for the crock pot. Another option for chicken breasts in the slow cooker is this vintage Continental Chicken recipe.

Crock Pot Chicken and Brown Gravy7

Taking inspiration from what I had on hand in the pantry, I came up with this easy chicken and gravy recipe for the crock pot.

This particular crock pot chicken and gravy recipe has a brown gravy instead of a white gravy. I personally think brown gravy has more flavor, and this recipe does not disappoint.

3 Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy

This crock pot chicken and gravy only has three ingredients total.

One, of course, is the chicken itself. Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs depending on what you prefer or what you have on hand.

This chicken and gravy recipe is versatile so feel free to use anywhere from 2 – 4 chicken breasts or thighs.

The base of this brown gravy comes from two simple condensed soups – French Onion Soup and Golden Mushroom soup.

French Onion Soup is a favorite ingredient of mine when I want to add a punch of intense flavor. The Golden Mushroom Soup helps thicken up the brown gravy. If you can’t find Golden Mushroom Soup, go ahead and use cream of mushroom instead.
