Slow Cooker Pesto Ranch Chicken

Monday, February 3, 2014

A new month has arrived. In other news, groundhog Punxatawny Phil saw his shadow yesterday, so it seems that we have another full 6 weeks of winter to look forward to. Blah. After that bit of news, and one of the worst Superbowl blowouts I recall ever seeing last night, the first weekend in February didn't have much to be encouraged about. I will say, Bruno Mars is definitely towards the top of my list of concerts I need to attend. He sure does know how to put on a show! The only 5 minutes of the Superbowl worth watching last night!

On to the recipe. This is seriously one of the best Pinterest recipes I've found. It takes almost zero time to prepare, and the result is beyond delicious. Perfect for a super busy day!

Step One: Gather the ingredients.

Step Two: Mix together the pesto, ranch seasoning packet, and chicken broth.

Step Three: Line slow cooker, arrange chicken, and pour pesto mix over top. Stir to coat both sides of chicken. Set to high for 4-6 hours, or low for 6-8. That's it! This chicken will be falling apart it will be so tender after cooking.
