I’ve made this recipe with a roast before but never with chicken. I think I like the chicken version better!

Mississippi Chicken

3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 packet au jus gravy mix

1 packet ranch dressing mix

1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter

6-8 pepperoncini peppers

Add chicken thighs to the bottom of the slow cooker.

Sprinkle both packets of au jus gravy mix and ranch dressing mix on top of the chicken.

Then, top with stick of butter and pepperoncinis.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.

The chicken will produce its own juices so you don’t have to add any other liquid to this.

When it’s ready, take a couple of forks and shred the chicken.

Serve over rice, potatoes, noodles or riced cauliflower.
