Recipe for 3-ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy

Recipe for 3-ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy #easydinner #crockpot

Makes 4 servings

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (frozen is okay)
1 packet onion soup mix
1 (13.75 oz) can cream of mushroom soup

1.  Place chicken thighs in bottom of slow cooker.
2.  Sprinkle onion soup mix on top
3.  Spoon the cream of mushroom soup over the top of the chicken.
4.  Cover and cook on LOW for about 4-6 hours.
5.  Remove lid, shred chicken.  Serve chicken and gravy over rice or mashed potatoes or toast.

This was one of those days that I had no idea what to make for dinner.  I went to my pantry and found a can of cream of mushroom soup and a thing of onion soup.  Bingo.  It was also one of those dinners that I knew my husband would appreciate a lot (me, not as much).  I was thinking of adding some cream cheese or sour cream at the end but the sauce was perfect and I decided not to add anymore calories.  This is a great recipe if you're feeding a crowd and need something super duper easy and fast!
3 1/2 stars.


  1. Hi Karen,
    Do you add any water to the cream of mushroom soup?
    Thanks! :)

  2. any substitution if you dont like mushrooms or onions? just to have chicken, white kind of gravy and rice?

  3. Tabitha,
    Here is a recipe I was looking at the other day that might help you! http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2012/12/slow-cooker-chicken-and-gravy.html

  4. Hi Karen, I accidentally used too small of a can of mushroom soup, HELP!!!

    very excited to eat this though!

  5. Just made this last night for my inlaws. They were coming in town and I wanted a hot meal ready for them when they got to their "Texas" home. I set up the crockpot and left. They absolutely loved it! I changed a few things based on what I had in the pantry & wanting to increase the amount of gravy. I used 8 boneless thighs, 2 packets of lipton mushroom onion soup mix, 2 cans healthy request cream of mushroom soup. I also cooked it on high.

  6. Sara, so glad it worked out for you!!

  7. Just made this tonight, my sisters licked their plates clean and went back for seconds!!!! Tasted amazing!

  8. I'm excited to try this tonight with so many good reviews! The only things I would change is mix the cream of mushroom soup and the onion soup mix first and then pour that on top on the chicken. Also, I didn't have chicken thighs so I'm using boneless chicken breasts.

    1. Good idea, Erica! Hope you liked it :)
