Semi Homemade Chicken and Gravy

I am back (I hope!) for awhile. I got my computer back. It was just far too difficult to post on my phone and tablet. It was so frustrating that I decided a break was needed. Thank you for sticking with me!

I am into this idea of semi homemade right now. I go through period of times time where I make everything from scratch and then when times are busy I find myself doing the semi homemade. Mixing premade items with the fresh to make meals easier. All of the items in this recipe can be homemade – 2 cups gravy, cream of chicken soup, but I used the canned and instant versions for this


I didn’t expect my family to like this as much as they did. It was perfect over homemade mashed potatoes on a cold snowy night. Because it was in the slow cooker we had the delicious smell filling the house all day too.

Because I was making this in the slow cooker I had extra time at meal time so I made simple homemade mashed potatoes to serve the chicken and gravy over. Leaving the skins on the potatoes and doing a quick mash took no time at all and made the dish even better.

I served this with a side of green beans and a green side salad to complete the meal.

  • 2 – 2 1/2 lb. chicken breast
  • 1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (0.87 oz) packets of turkey gravy (can use chicken but we prefer turkey)
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles for serving as desired


  1. Place chicken in bowl of slow cooker, with cream of chicken soup, gravy mix, and water. Stir well. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high 3-4 until chicken is done.
  2. Shred chicken and stir gravy. If gravy is too thin stir in one teaspoon of cornstarch diluted in one tablespoon of cold water to thicken.
  3. Serve hot over mashed potatoes, rice or noodles.
