  • 1 packet (1 ounce) dry onion soup mix
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (optional, for thickening)
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional, for thickening)
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Chicken:
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried thyme.
  1. Mix the Sauce:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry onion soup mix, condensed cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth until smooth.
  1. Assemble in the Slow Cooker:

  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  1. Thicken the Gravy (Optional):
  • If desired, you can thicken the gravy. In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water until smooth to create a slurry.
  • Stir the slurry into the slow cooker during the last 30 minutes of cooking. This will help thicken the gravy.
