I can’t tell you how excited I was to find this recipe. Every holiday, whether it’s Christmas, New Years, Easter, Thanksgiving or any other, my mom and I wake up and slave away in the kitchen to make a delicious breakfast before the men wake up. This casserole is perfect because you throw the ingredients in the crock pot the night before and it’s ready to serve as soon as you wake up. It’s delicious and dummy proof, what more could you want from a recipe?

Pesto Ranch Crock Pot Chicken

Oh. My. Gosh. That’s all I can say about this recipe. Not only is it just about the simplest dinner you could possibly make, it tastes like you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen to cook the perfect meal. And it only takes a few minutes! I prepared this in my crock pot before work and left it on low heat for eight hours before serving it to my brother and sister-in-law. The brother went back for seconds – that’s when you know it’s a hit!!

6 ounce jar of pesto

1 package Ranch Dressing Seasoning

Mix 1/2 cup chicken broth Directions Turn crock pot to high setting. Place chicken thighs, pesto, ranch dressing and chicken broth into crock pot. Stir gently to combine all seasonings. Close with lid and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.
