Crockpot Pesto Chicken with Spaghetti Squash


Crockpot recipe #12 is pesto chicken with spaghetti squash.  Tim and I like this.  It's something a little different.  The chicken is made in the crockpot and I made the spaghetti squash in the oven.  I'll give you the recipes for both.  Spaghetti squash can also be made in the crockpot if you'd like (I'll do another post on that soon)

Crockpot Pesto Chicken
4-5 Chicken breasts (frozen)
1/3 jar of pesto (you can use more if you'd like, but I think this is enough)
1 pkg. ranch mix
1/2 cup chicken broth

Place chicken in bottom of the crockpot
Pour chicken broth, pesto and ranch mix over the chicken
Cook on LOW for 6-8 hrs
Shred chicken when done

Spaghetti Squash
Spaghetti squash
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 350
Cut squash in half lengthwise (this is the hardest part!)
Scoop out seeds and toss in the trash
Place each side of the squash in a 9x13 pan
Pour a little olive oil on each half
Sprinkle desired amount of garlic on each half
Place in the oven uncovered
Cook for 40 min. or until tender
When done, cool for about 5 min.
Use fork to scrape out the spaghetti squash, it should look like pieces of spaghetti
