Cooking Tips

  • Use chicken breasts or thighs for this recipe. I prefer to use chicken breasts, as they are leaner and will result in a healthier dish. However, chicken thighs will work just as well.
  • Be sure to use low-sodium chicken broth. This will help to keep the sodium content of the dish down.
  • If you want a thicker gravy, you can add some cornstarch to the juices before adding them to the crock pot.
  • Add some garlic powder and onion powder to my chicken and gravy for extra flavor. However, this is completely optional.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you need to feed a large crowd.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to four days.
