Crockpot Pesto Chicken

You gotta love a recipe that has only a few ingredients and is super easy to throw together!!! This crockpot recipe has been floating around the internet for awhile now. I've always enjoyed anything with pesto sauce so I knew that pesto flavored chicken would be delicious! I decided to step away from my normal use of chicken breasts and try this recipe with chicken thighs.  One package of chicken thighs is relatively inexpensive and I doubled the meat so that we would have leftovers for the next day.  

Crockpot Pesto Chicken

2 packages chicken thighs
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 package Ranch dressing mix
1 (7 oz.) container Pesto with Basil

Place chicken into the crockpot. Spread the pesto sauce over the top of the chicken. Sprinkle the ranch dressing mix. Pour in the chicken broth and gently stir the sauce.  Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or on LOW for 6-8 hours.

Serve the pesto chicken along side mashed potatoes or cooked penne pasta. This flavorful chicken would also be great if you shredded it and then placed it on a hoagie roll with a slice of mozzarella cheese! Yum!
