This slow cooker Mississippi chicken is one of my FAVORITE things to make during a busy week. It is so flavorful and can be used in many different ways. If you haven’t heard of Mississippi pot roast, you are missing out. It is a super tasty pot roast recipe that has been going around for years. This is the chicken version of that recipe.  Instead of using Au Jus Mix, I use a packet of chicken gravy. Don’t worry about this meal being too spicy. The peppers just add a nice flavor to the dish.

What kind of chicken do I use?

I use boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe but thighs are also a great option. 

Ingredients needed: chicken, au jus mix, ranch dressing mix, butter and peperoncini peppers.

  • For this recipe you only need 5 simple ingredients and a slow cooker. Easy Peasy! I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe but chicken thighs would also be nice.
  • Place them in the slow cooker, top with seasonings, butter, peperoncini peppers or banana peppers and a little of the pepper juice.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours depending on your schedule. I have even cooked it on the four hour setting.

This chicken is also Low-Carb and Keto friendly. I love serving it with mashed cauliflower for a low carb meal. You could also melt some cheese on top!
