Easy slow cooked pesto chicken 5 0 5 3

Simple, delicious and really tasty even the fussy ones should enjoy this !

  • Prep: 5 hrs
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • 5 hrs

    4 hrs

    9 hrs

  • Yields: 4


4-6 chicken thigh (leave whole)

1 cup spinach

6x sundried tomatoes sliced or cherry tomatoes work well

1x tsp garlic

300ml of cream

1 cup chicken stock

1 jar of basil pesto (recommend barilla)

Parmesan about 1/4 of a cup

Salt and pepper


1Place all Ingredients (apart from spinach) into slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours add the spinach about 30 minutes before serving just to soften it.


1If cream splits add 1tbs or cornflour to 1-2 Tbs or water mix and pour into slow cookers and mix well and it should fix that problem. Alternatively you can add the cream when you add your spinach.

2Serve with pasta cooked as per packet directions and a good sprinkle of Parmesan

3I almost used a full packet of penne this made enough for 4 people

Love this dish but next time I might try gnocchi instead of pasta and see how that works out.
