Gluten Free Pesto & Ranch Chicken Crock Pot Recipe

Pack of chicken thighs
1 (8 ounce) jar of pesto (although I never use the whole jar)
1 (0.25 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
2-3 cups chicken stock 

Clean chicken thighs and place them in the bottom of the crock pot.  I have used chicken breasts for this recipe before but prefer thighs.

Take pesto and spread it over chicken.  The more you use, the stronger it is.  I usually end up using 3/4th of the jar.

Pour chicken stock over the top.  Mix the stock into the pesto and ranch.  Cook it on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.  Don’t overcook.  Thighs will shrivel.

Put the chicken over top of rice or just eat it plain.  Either way, its a simply delicious meal!  Enjoy!

Note:  Stick a Gluten Free Label tag on your crock pot and ladle if you are bringing this dish to a friends, church event or party so gluten cross-contamination doesn’t occur!  Our tags are heat-resistant & our labels are dishwasher safe!
