Recipe type: Slow Cooker
Cuisine: Dinner
Serves: 6-8
  • 3-4 lbs of chicken thighs or breasts (I prefer boneless, but bone-in will work too)
  • ½ cup of your favorite pesto
  • 1 dry Ranch packet
  • 1 cup chicken broth or 1 tsp chicken bouillon and one cup water
  1. Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and stir/spread everything until the chicken is equally covered with the seasonings.
  2. Cover with lid and cook on high for four hours or low for 6-8.
  3. Using two forks, pull the cooked meat apart until it is nicely shredded.
  4. Serve over a bed of fluffy white rice.
  5. ***If you have leftovers, use them later in the week by adding them to a bottle of alfredo sauce and serving it over fettuccine noodles.
