1 pound (about 2 breasts) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

6-8 Tbsp pesto (to taste)

1 cup pasta sauce

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Spray your crock pot with non stick spray.

Lay chicken on bottom and spread pesto and pasta sauce on top.

Cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours.

Add cheese to top of chicken, being careful to keep it just on the chicken and not in the juices.

Cook another 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Remove chicken and toppings gently with a slotted spoon to keep it all intact. It is so tender that it easily falls apart.

If you want your cheese browned instead of just melted, take the chicken out of the crock pot and put in an oven safe dish, add cheese and broil in the oven for about 5 minutes.
