Storage and Leftovers

Crockpot Chicken and Gravy isn’t just a delicious dinner option; it’s a fantastic meal prep solution.

In the Refrigerator: Cool your chicken and separate it from the gravy before placing them in airtight containers. Refrigerate within two hours of cooking, keeping them for 3-4 days.

In the Freezer: For longer storage, freeze the chicken and gravy in separate freezer-safe containers or bags, marked with the date. They’ll stay good for 2-3 months.

Thawing and Reheating: Thaw frozen leftovers in the fridge overnight. Reheat them in the microwave, on the stovetop, or in the oven until warm, stirring occasionally for even heating.


Can I use frozen chicken breasts? Yes! One of the joys of crockpot meals is their flexibility. You can start with frozen chicken breasts; just remember to add an additional hour to your cooking time if cooking on low, ensuring everything is cooked through safely.

Can use chicken thighs or tenderloins in place of chicken breasts? Certainly! Whether you choose chicken thighs for a richer flavor in your Crockpot Chicken Thighs and Gravy or tenderloins for a quicker and tender option in Crockpot Chicken Tenderloins and Gravy, both alternatives blend seamlessly into the classic recipe.

What to serve with Crockpot Chicken and Gravy?

Serving your Crockpot Chicken and Gravy, consider pairing it with various sides that complement its rich and comforting flavors. Mashed potatoes or steamed cilantro rice make excellent bases, soaking up the delicious gravy. For a lighter option, a crisp green salad or roasted vegetables to add a refreshing contrast.
