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:
- 1 - 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/8 cup parmesan cheese (I used the DiGiorno grated cheese)
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 4 tsp Italian seasoning
- 2 tablespoon minced onion
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Place chicken in slow cooker.
- Mix remaining ingredients, pour over chicken.
- Cook on low 6-8 hours, or on high 3-4 hours.
