  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet ranch dressing seasoning mix (just the dry mix)
  • 1 cup pesto (1 jar of store-bought OR click [url:1]HERE[/url] for my super easy 5-minute homemade pesto!)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  • Place chicken breasts in a single layer in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle ranch seasoning over chicken.
  • In a small bowl whisk together pesto and 1/2 cup water and pour over chicken. (Water isn't in the ingredient list because, well, it's water...)
  • Cover and cook for 2-3 hours on high or 4-5 hours on low. About 15 minutes before serving, stir the sauce and chicken to coat well. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the chicken - cover and allow to melt for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
