Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftovers

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The leftovers will last about 3-4 days. We think the leftovers taste better the next day.

Can I Freeze?

Yes, chicken and gravy freezes great. Once the leftovers have cooled to room temperature, place in a freezer safe container or ziplock freezer bag. If stored properly, the chicken and gravy will stay fresh up to 3 months.

How to Reheat

This will depend on how much you have left. You can reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop. If your chicken and gravy is frozen, allow it to thaw overnight in the fridge.

    My family loved this recipe but we found it to be salty so we now use low sodium gravy and soup and it has totally cured that we put it over stuffing and add whatever veggies we are in the mood for

  12. Carrie says:

    We used a chicken gravy mix in this recipe. It creates the gravy for the chicken in this recipe.

  13. tiffany says:

    in the description of this chicken and gravy it mentions brown gravy, but i do not see it in ingredients list , why is that?

  14. Melissa Prigel says:

    Great every time. Family frequently asks for this one!

  15. Belinda leonard says:

    Every time I add cream soups to my crock pot to cook all day even on the low setting they break down. Is there any solution that I can do to keep this happening and stay creamy??

  16. Carrie says:

    I use frozen chicken breasts all the time, either would work!

  17. Susan says:

    5 stars
    Very good. Didnt shred but cut tender chick into chunks. Very tender. Could have added one more chick breast since 1.5 lbs was only 2 large ones. One more would have worked.

  18. Karen Clements says:

    Does the chicken have to be fresh, or can it be put in crock pot frozen?

  19. Jenny says:

    If adding FROZEN PEAS AND CARROTS, at what point do I add them? If instead of that, adding FRESHLY CUT carrots (and no peas), what point should I add them?
