“This easy crockpot dish comes out sort of like a chicken stroganoff. I had some frozen chicken breast and built from there. My family liked it.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar chicken gravy
  • 2 medium yellow onions, pureed along with a couple cloves of garlic
  • seasoning (I used some onion onion from tastefully simple, I suspect a dry onion soup mix would have worked too)
  • 12 cup half-and-half (approx)
  • 1 tablespoon cognac (probably could have not used this, but it was on the counter)
  • 1 cup water (if sauce becomes too thick)
  • raw Baby Spinach


  1. Pop everything except the spinach in the crockpot and stir well to coat.
  2. If the chicken is frozen, start earlier and run for a few hours on high then turn to low until dinner.
  3. For fresh chicken, start on high and bring to simmer and then turn to low until and cook until chicken is shreddable texture. After a while, it pretty much shreds itself.
  4. Stir occasionally.
  5. Minutes before you are ready to serve, stir in the raw baby spinach and allow it to wilt.
  6. Serve over rice. (It might also taste good served on a nice roll, like a sloppy joe).
