Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken

Today’s slow cooker balsamic chicken is one that’s really easy to prep and requires just a few basic ingredients. All kinds of good things about that!
Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken
It’s a recipe I originally came up with at a family beach vacation when we were staying in a condo and didn’t want to have to buy too much stuff for our dinners. (This recipe is gluten-free)

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • chopped fresh parsley


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and sprinkle over chicken breasts. Place chicken breasts in the insert of the slow cooker.
  2. Top chicken with onion slices and diced tomatoes. Pour balsamic vinegar and chicken broth over chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  4. Serve hot, sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley.


A FEW NOTES ON THIS SLOW COOKER BALSAMIC CHICKEN RECIPE:

  • I serve the chicken breasts sliced and topped with lots of extra sauce. It’s all about the sauce. You could also shred the chicken if you prefer and stir it back into the sauce.
  • I served this with quinoa, but it would also be great over rice, couscous or polenta. Or crusty bread. The delicious juices are just dying for something else to soak into!
  • The recipe serves 6-8, but if you’ve got a smaller group for dinner, you can save the leftovers for lunch or freeze them for another time. Make sure to include plenty of sauce so your leftovers don’t dry out when you reheat them.
