Slow Cooker Italian Chicken

  • Sharebar

please forgive the photo . . . it was late and we were hungry, so no time for a pretty pic! ;)

 

I saw this great recipe for Pesto Ranch Chicken Thighs over on Pinterest, but when I went to actually make it, I was missing almost all of the ingredients! Because I’ll do anything to avoid a last minute (un-planned) trip to the grocery store, I decided to see what I could come up with using what we did have on hand.

 

Guess what? This Slow Cooker Italian Chicken turned out perfectly!  I served it with green beans, mashed potatoes, and some of those Country Crock Apples that were $.50 at Publix last week (those taste just like Cracker Barrel. . . ), and my little family gobbled down every bite on their plate. I’m planning to shred the leftover chicken for lunch to make a Caesar Chicken Wrap.  Here’s the recipe if you’d like to add it to your menu plan:
