This crock pot chicken with gravy comes together with just four ingredients (plus the egg noodles for serving!):

  • Chicken – I recommend using boneless skinless chicken thighs for best flavor. You could also use boneless skinless chicken breasts, but I prefer thighs as they have more flavor. Be sure to use raw chicken and if using frozen, thaw overnight in the fridge.
  • Italian Dressing Mix – This is a dry mix packet for Italian dressing that you can find in your local grocery store in the salad dressing section. Here’s an organic version if you prefer.
  • Chicken Gravy – I used a jarred chicken gravy, but cream of chicken soup could also work, though may have a slightly different flavor. You could also use homemade gravy, chicken gravy nix, or gravy packets. You’ll need 1 1/2 cups.
  • Cream Cheese – The cream cheese helps add an extra creaminess to the crockpot chicken and gravy recipe, but you could also omit it if you prefer. It’s delicious with and without it.
  • Egg Noodles – I love serving this easy chicken recipe over wide egg noodles, but it would also be delicious over mashed potatoes, rice, or even cauliflower rice.

Storage Instructions

Store leftovers from this crock pot chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

How to reheat

Reheat creamy chicken in a hot skillet or in the microwave until heated through.

Can you freeze creamy chicken?

I would not recommend freezing the chicken as the creamy sauce could change texture, but if you want to give it a try, skip the cream cheese to help lessen a shift in texture.

How to Serve 4-Ingredient Crockpot Chicken with Noodles to the Whole Family

I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉

Serve the slow cooker chicken with a few sides you know they will eat. If not the pasta you are serving it with, then bread, fruit, and/or milk. You can also put a small portion of chicken and gravy mixture in a small taster bowl so they can “test it out” without the pressure of eating a full serving.
