Can you tell I grilled up a bunch of chicken this weekend to use for lunch and dinner? Lots of salads! The crock pot pesto chicken is loosely based on this recipe, but I make our own dairy-free and MSG-free ranch seasoning based on this recipe. I also make our own pesto since most store-bought [...]
