Another aside... we are a family of three that eat small portion sizes and do not eat leftovers... so even if I am following a recipe for 8 servings, I usually cut it down at some point so we have just enough for dinner. Therefore, my pictures will not necessarily reflect the recipes serving size, but I will post the recipe for the larger size.
The idea for this recipe is Pesto Ranch Crock Pot Chicken from Picky Palate and appears very simple as most crockpot recipes are... just dump it all in. This does make a creamier sauce, and I may play with my recipe in the future to make a creamier sauce as well.
There are only four ingredients and nothing out of the ordinary. Chicken; I used boneless skinless breasts. I happened to have thin cut on hand (I only used 1/3 of the package shown and froze the rest), 1 packet of ranch dressing mix (I have a jar, 3Tbs = 1 Packet), I also added granulated garlic, and a jar of pesto sauce.
Mix the ranch and the granulated garlic, coat both sides of the chicken and place it in a 9 x 13 baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Stir the prepared pesto and spoon some over the top of each piece of chicken. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake. These thin cut breasts took 30 minutes. I would probably cook regular breasts 45 minutes.
Guess what? Dear Hubby loved it!
Love and God's peace to you,
