This Mississippi chicken is fall-off the bone, easy to prep, and incredibly flavorful. This is a family favorite tried and true crockpot recipe. It’s super simple, involves 4 ingredients and comes out perfect every time!
This recipe is a spin off of the infamous Mississippi Pot Roast. Most versions of this dish have butter in them, while free to add if you are sticking with a more keto-ish diet, chicken thighs make this the best of both worlds because they themselves offer a rich buttery taste and protein. We love ButcherBox chicken thighs which are pre-packaged bone-in skin-on chicken thighs; so incredibly flavorful!
Ingredients for slow cooker mississippi chicken
Here’s what we are working with for this recipe:
- chicken thighs – we prefer bone-in for that extra punch of flavor, but you can also choose to debone prior to cooking. If chicken thighs are just not your thing, you can use chicken breasts instead for this recipe.
- pepperoncinis – sliced or whole, you can’t go wrong! We used a whole jar of these for our recipe, but if you prefer less eat, you can choose to add less pepperoncinis to your crockpot Mississippi chicken recipe.
- ranch packet seasoning – all the flavor you need in one little packet; we love using ranch dip seasoning packets in our crockpot meals!
- onion soup and dip packet mix – if we are making a crockpot recipe, chances are pretty high that this is included along with the ranch packet! So much flavor!
That’s it! 4 ingredients, plus 1/2 cup of the pepperoncini juice and you are in the land of deliciousness!
I love to serve our crockpot Mississippi chicken with egg noodles because they soak up the sauce perfectly.
