  • 3 whole chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (about a pound)
  • 2 packets chicken gravy mix
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can of water (use the soup can for measurement)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot. Season them generously with garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper. You can adjust the seasoning according to your preference, ensuring a good coating on the chicken.
  2. Mix the Gravy Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the chicken gravy mix, cream of chicken soup, and a can of water. Whisk together until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  3. Add Gravy to Crockpot:
    • Pour the gravy mixture over the seasoned chicken breasts in the crockpot. Make sure the chicken is well-coated and submerged under the gravy.
  4. Cook:
    • Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. The chicken should be very tender and easily shredded with a fork when it’s done.
  5. Add Sour Cream:
    • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the crockpot and shred it using two forks. Return the shredded chicken to the crockpot.
    • Stir in the sour cream into the gravy and chicken mixture until well incorporated. This will add a creamy texture and rich flavor to the gravy.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the chicken and gravy mixture heat through for an additional 10-15 minutes in the crockpot after adding the sour cream. Stir occasionally to keep everything well mixed.
    • Serve the creamy chicken and gravy over steamed rice, mashed potatoes, or your favorite noodles. It also pairs well with a side of steamed vegetables or a fresh salad.
