Creamy Pesto and Sun Dried Tomato Chicken
Time on High: 3 to 4 hours Time on Low: 6 hours Fresh, fabulous, and easy! I love this recipe. It fits all my qualifications as a perfect dish. Its easy to prepare for a busy weekday meal and impressive enough to make for a special family dinner or to serve to guests. I have served it with a pasta, mashed potatoes, or couscous. Add a side salad and you have the perfect meal.
