Pesto Chicken Thighs

It has been awhile since I have posted!  I get SO busy with the holidays.  I cook a lot during the holiday season, but it's a lot of my favorite recipes and I don't get to experiment too often with new ones :)

I did find this easy recipe that turned out FANTASTIC!  Crock Pot recipes are always a huge plus in my book and if I can find a good one, I keep it and post it for you all to try!  This one is a recipe for pesto chicken thighs.  This one is Gluten free - but always read your labels!

This was a big winner at my house over the holidays.  My mom, husband and nephew raved over it!  This one is super easy to make and is perfect for that day you don't want to spend too many hours in the kitchen!  NOTE: If you are making this Gluten free, please read all your labels, especially the chicken broth and pesto jar!  Or make your own pesto sauce.



  • 8 chicken thighs
  • 6oz jar pesto sauce
  • 1 package of dry ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth 
  • Turn crock pot to low.  
  • Place chicken thighs on the bottom of the crock pot.  Pour the pesto, ranch dressing packet and chicken broth on top of the chicken thighs in the crock pot.
  • Stir gently to combine all ingredients.
  • Place the top on the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.
You can serve this with rice, mashed potatoes or pasta!  I loved this with a salad as a side dish!
