DIRECTIONS

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