This is a delicious and easy way to prepare chicken. Top with basil pesto if desired.

Top Review by Little Bee

I had to edit my previous review about it not having basil in it because I didn't see the Pesto part which was my fault. I really wanted to try this recipe and I'm glad I did! I love using my crockpot and this turned out great. I used boneless thighs and stirred a little Pesto in at the end.
