Slow Cooker Chicken with Bacon Gravy

March 3, 2024 - Country Cooking

Slow Cooker Chicken with Bacon Gravy- an easy dump-and-go chicken recipe that tastes great served over white rice. A creamy bacon-flavored gravy makes this chicken hard to resist.

Ingredients Needed

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Pepper, garlic powder, dried thyme, and crushed red pepper flakes– for seasoning.

Bacon– 8 slices cooked and crumbled.

2 Packets Gravy Mix

Heavy Cream

How To Make Slow Cooker Chicken with Bacon Gravy

Place chicken in a 6-quart slow cooker.

Sprinkle seasonings and bacon over chicken.

Whisk together gravy mix and water and pour over chicken.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours.

Add heavy cream and cover and cook another 10 minutes. Serve.

How To Serve

Serve over white rice or mashed potatoes with a side of Southern-Style Green Beans or Buttery Peas and Mushrooms. Also goes great with Old-Fashioned Cabbage Casserole or Cracker Barrel Baby Limas.

Can I Use Chicken Thighs?

Yes! You can use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I recommend using 6. Cook them for 1 hour longer than chicken breasts.

Recipe Tips

I don’t recommend cooking chicken breasts on HIGH in a slow cooker. They are too likely to get overcooked and chewy and dry in texture.

Make it a little or a lot spicy. Add just a pinch of red pepper flakes for a touch of heat. Add half a teaspoon to make it spicy.

Storage

Will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days and can be frozen for up to 2 months.
