    dogsandwoods's Note:

    This is from the website by Stephanie O'Dea. She actually has a new book out called "Make It Fast, Cook It Slow". Stephanie spent over a year cooking every single meal and dessert in crock pots. She is really nice; before her book came out we corresponded a few times. This recipe seemed so different than anything else that I could find on Recipezaar. I have not yet made this layered meal, but it does sound great!

    Serves: 4


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Use a 6 quart slow cooker.
    2. 2
      Blend or food process the first seven ingredients. (If you get to the chicken, you've gone too far.).
    3. 3
      Take a small taste to double check the flavor of your pesto and adjust as needed.
    4. 4
      Arrange the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. Chicken may be used frozen.
    5. 5
      Layer on the mozzarella cheese.
    6. 6
      Pour on the pesto.
    7. 7
      Cover with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
    8. 8
      Scrub sweet potatoes well and prick with a fork or other puncturing object.
    9. 9
      Lay them on top of the foil or parchment, of course.
    10. 10
      Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 4-5.
    11. 11
      If your chicken is frozen, it will take longer.
    12. 12
      When done, carefully remove the sweet potatoes with tongs.
    13. 13
      Watch out for steam. [As a side note, I am the queen of steam burns. Oops, forgot the mitt again.].
