Slow cooker recipes are good year round, and this slow cooker Mississippi chicken recipe is the best! The chicken comes out packed with flavor each and every time! You can serve it over egg noodles or mashed potatoes or on a bun with some cheese. Enjoy some of these three ingredient peanut butter cookies for dessert and your stomach will be in heaven!
Slow cooker Mississippi Chicken ingredients:
- 3 pounds of skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 1 packet ranch dressing mix
- 1 packet au jus gravy mix
- 1 cup sliced pepperoncinis, mostly drained
- 1 stick butter
Slow Cooker Mississippi Chicken directions:
Combine all five ingredients to a slow cooker. Cover with the lid and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 hours. Make sure the chicken is cooked all of the way through and shreds easily with a fork. I like using chicken breast tenderloins – they are smaller so they cook much faster than the time I just gave you (those times are for chicken breasts) and the smaller pieces of chicken means it’s faster to shred the meat. Once the chicken is cooked, shred it all into small strips and stir to coat all chicken in the sauce.
If you want to mix things up, you can use the exact same recipe, but instead of using the ranch and au jus gravy mix, use a packet of taco seasoning for a slightly taco-ish flavor (or go ahead and add two packets of taco seasoning if you want to taste the seasoning have a stronger taco flavor).
This recipe is SO easy and the pepporoncinis add some zest without a lot of spice (so this is still perfect to serve to kids). The Slow Cooker Mississippi Chicken is a life saver when you have a crowd of people to feed. My favorite way to eat it is as a sandwich.
We had the chicken taco version of the recipe at a friends party recently and EVERY female there asked for the recipe so they could make it at home! This recipe came from bunsinmyoven.com.
Butter makes everything good.
