Slow Cooker Mississippi Chicken

August 5, 2020Laura

Mississippi pot roast is one of my absolute favorite dinners! I usually make it about once a month and everyone loves it! I decided to switch things up a bit and try it out with chicken. It did not disappoint! The chicken turned out so flavorful and just fell apart when it was finished cooking. Plus it’s an easy Crockpot recipe, which is always a winner in my book!

Other than altering a couple of the measurements, the ingredients are pretty much identical to my pot roast recipe. You will need chicken breast, ranch seasoning, a packet of au jus gravy mix, butter and pepperoncini peppers. I don’t use the ranch seasonings packets. The ingredients aren’t the cleanest and it adds quite a few extra carbs. I make my own seasoning blend, which is included in the recipe card below.

I just throw all of the ingredients into the Crockpot and let it cook for about 6 hours on low. Once it’s finished, I shred the chicken with two forks and serve. The chicken will fall apart and soaks up all the delicious juices. For sides, I like serving it with mashed cauliflower. I do fit carrots into my diet and they make the perfect addition as well. You could also serve it along with roasted broccoli, green beans, asparagus or even cauliflower rice. There are tons of easy options! If you’re a Mississippi pot roast fan, give it a try with chicken. You won’t be disappointed!
