This recipe here just seemed really simple and traditional- chicken and gravy! Even better, this one was for the crockpot. If you make this recipe just as it was from the pin, it would be pretty bland. I added a few things, and next time I would add even more. I’ll show you how I made it this time…
What You Need:
2 chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup (original called for cream of chicken)
1 packet brown gravy mix (original called for chicken gravy mix)
1 cup of water (original did not call for any water)
Salt, pepper, minced onion (original did not call for any spices)
Combine all the ingredients in the crockpot, except the rice, and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.
I had set my crockpot on high for 3 1/2 hours, but after about 2 hours I realized I didn’t need to cook it for that long. So for the remaining time I set it on low. After it’s done cooking I pulled the chicken out and shredded it in my Kitchen Aid mixer (another fantastic Pinterest idea!). Then put it back in and mixed it all together. At this point you could either mix the rice into the chicken and gravy mixture, or you can serve the chicken and gravy on top of the rice.
I served it on top of the rice, that’s how my hubby likes it. We had some broccoli and cheese with it.
Okay, so this was pretty good. Like I said, traditional! Me, my hubby, and my brother Lucas would rate this 4 out of 5 stars. Next time though, we would add a few more things to the chicken and gravy: garlic powder, minced garlic, and additional minced onion. You will also want to have a good amount of pepper in there. With all that, we think this would be great! My hubbs asked for me to make it again, so I guess that means it was good 🙂
