Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne

I love pesto pasta chicken and have never made a dish like this in the crockpot. So glad I tried this! Super easy and so delicious. I made the chicken in the crockpot during the day and then made the sauce while the pasta was cooking just before dinner!

We included this meal in our 40 Meals in 4 hours. It’s a fantastic freezer meal – and you know we LOVE our Freezer meals at Who Needs a Cape? Dinner made easy is my kind of dinner. Dinner with yummy chicken and pesto? Easy? Yup we LOVE LOVE LOVE Crockpot Garlic Pesto Chicken. It’s definitely on our rotation whether we have it frozen or whether we put it together fresh – either way it’s a must have!

I think I’ve talked about it before, but my husband’s favorite dinner is chicken. Any kind of chicken makes him happy, but I can’t eat the same chicken dinner every single day! (ps my husband totally could). So I like having recipes like Crockpot Garlic Pesto Chicken because it’s not your typical chicken dinner – it let’s me change up the weekly menu a bit! I need that! I need change in the rotation 🙂


2 tablespoon(s) Pesto
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts
1/2 bottle(s) Lawrys Herb and Garlic Marinade
3 clove(s) Garlic minced
