Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken

Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken

Sue 2

"So easy and so good. I use frozen chicken breasts and cook on high for 4 hours in the slow cooker. The sauce is not thick, it is a bit runny, but very tasty. Add tomato paste if you want it thicker. Serve on top of pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. I use one can of crushed tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes."

Tried this yesterday. Very good. I had 4 med boneless, skinless chicken breasts already marinated overnight in frig. Used 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and 3 teas. crushed garlic. I used 2 cans, u...

I had to sub thighs for the breasts and whole tomatoes for the crushed, just because that's what I had on hand. It was delicious! My hubby loved it and raved about how good it was.

Cooked this for dinner tonight. I used diced tomatoes, flavored with rosemary and oregano instead of crushed tomatoes. I also used 1 teaspoon of thyme by mistake. I served it over linguine noodl...

My picky family loved this, I will absolutely make it again. Served it over rice, might add a bit of sugar next time to cut the acid a bit.

LOVE IT! Easy and after cooking it, I understand why you need to "layer" and not mix. Need to try!!! Hubs loved it too!

I did not have just canned tomatoes so I used the Rotel tomatoes with green chilies. WOW. Great taste. My kitchen smells delicious. There is a warmth that might not have been present if the c...

What a nice easy way to make chicken. The balsamic is a great touch. Used 1 can crushed, 1 can diced and 6 breasts. Shredded the chicken when done and put it over brown rice. Yummy! Thanks ...
