If you love the peppery kick of pepperoncini peppers, this easy slow cooker meal will be a favorite. It’s easy to make for gameday or a weeknight meal and leftovers keep wonderfully.

There’s only about 5 minutes of prep time needed to make this Mississippi Chicken. It’s a dump and go recipe and great for the busy back to school season.

To make it, combine 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a 6-quart slow cooker with a packet of Ranch seasoning, a packet of Au Jus Gravy Mix, a stick of unsalted butter and about 10-12 pepperoncini peppers. It will need 5-6 hours on LOW to cook, after which it will easily shred with 2 forks.

You won’t believe how wonderfully juicy and tender the chicken is!

The pepperoncini peppers give this chicken a nice spicy kick, but it’s definitely not over-spicy.

Tips for Making Crockpot Mississippi Chicken:

  • Chicken thighs can be used instead of chicken breasts.
  • You can thicken up the gravy with a little cornstarch and serve the extra gravy over mashed potatoes. So good!
  • You can use frozen chicken breasts and cook on LOW for 8 hours. This is great if you are going to be gone all day.
