What is a Mississippi Chicken?
Mississippi Chicken are chicken breasts covered in seasoning, butter, and pepperoncini. The flavors of the ranch seasoning, au jus and butter calm down any heat you may expect from the pepperoncini.
It is cooked low and slow for 6 to 8 hours in a slow cooker, and that just brings out the amazing flavors in the meat.
While there is no official history behind the name, it was just originated from a chef in Mississippi. If our friend from church had not of told us about this, I may have never heard about it!
How do you serve Mississippi Chicken?
I typically serve mine on a layer of mashed potatoes. You can make your own or buy a premade family style mashed potato.
Now I have a lot of different mashed potato recipes on my blog, so I'll just give you the World's Best Mashed Potato recipe to use. You also can serve this on a bed of buttered white rice if you would like!
