Pesto Ranch Crockpot Chicken

Pesto Ranch Crockpot Chicken

So, I may or may not be completely obsessed with my Crockpot.

Okay, I confess! I am totally obsessed. I have made Tex Mex Chicken three times, Zesty Italian BBQ Chicken twice and I even turned my Buffalo Chicken recipe into a macaroni and cheese dish.

The crockpot is so brilliant because you really just toss a bunch of things into it, and your meal is magically ready 6 hours later. I see recipes all the time that require stovetop prep for a slow cooker recipe, like sautéing onions or what have you, and I’m inclined to say NO THANK YOU.

Recently, I found a recipe for Pesto Ranch Crockpot Chicken Thighs on Picky Palate. Yes, please! Normally I pin recipes and forget about them, but with this one, I had to make it right away.

This recipe is a beautiful thing because not only is it a dump-everything-in kind of deal, but it only calls for 4 ingredients: 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (we used 6 breasts), a 6 ounce jar of pesto, a package of dry ranch mix and 1/2 cup of chicken broth.

I’ve never really cooked with pesto for Xavier because he’s generally not a fan of anything green on principle alone, but I am very proud to say that this recipe is Manchild Approved. AND Kelsey approved, needless to say. I wouldn’t change a thing about it (besides the thigh/breast switch). I shredded up the leftovers and used in my salads all week, which definitely kicked my lunch up a knotch.

Check out Picky Palate for the recipe!
