This time of year demands cozy fires and crockpots full of comfort food.

This recipe calls for just 5 ingredients:

How To Make Crockpot Chicken & Gravy:

Slow Cook: Cover your slow cooker and turn to high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours.
- You may substitute chicken thighs for chicken breasts, if you prefer.
- Every slow cooker cooks differently – some run hotter than others. This crockpot chicken and gravy recipe will cook on low in about 5 hours or on high in 3 hours in most slow cookers.
- When the chicken shreds easily, it’s done!
Shred: When the chicken has finished cooking, shred it with a pair of forks and stir it together the meat together with the gravy mixture until it is well coated. Stir in some freshly chopped parsley and cracked pepper.
Alternately, use a hand mixer to shred the chicken quickly. Just pop it right in the slow cooker and turn it to low.
