Simple Crock Pot Chicken

I remember as a child eating a meal of tender chicken shredded on top of a bed of mashed potatoes with some flavorful dressing.
Well, this recipe brought all that back.
You can serve it over a bed of egg noodles or mashed potatoes, whatever you prefer. 
This recipe won't disappoint!

You will need:
                                            3 large skinless chicken breasts (bone in)
                                             1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth
                                    2 (7/8 ounce) packages chicken gravy mix or 2 (7/8 ounce) packages                                             mushroom gravy mix or 2 (7/8 ounce) packages brown gravy mix
Place chicken breasts(you may remove bones if you like) in crock pot. 
Pour in chicken broth. If it doesn't cover the chicken, you may add a little bit of water. 
Cook on low 8 hours, or high 4-5 hours. Check for tenderness. 
When it fall off the bone when pulled with a fork, remove from crock pot. 
Remove bones.

In a saucepan, pour 2 cups of broth from crock pot. 
Add 2 packages gravy mix and stir until it thickens, about 2 minutes.
 If you like you can make gravy from scratch, using the crock pot broth.

Serve gravy over chicken. I always serve this with mashed potatoes, but noodles would be good too. You may season to taste at this point, but the gravy mix and the chicken broth are pretty salty, so taste first. Enjoy!
