Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken

Let your slow cooker [paid link] do the work with this simple to prepare slow cooker [paid link] balsamic chicken. Serve with your favorite vegetables for an easy, healthy, and delicious meal!


This summer has been brutal and the heat was absolutely unrelenting in our part of the country so we found ourselves quite often looking to the grill or our crock pot to avoid heating up the entire house cooking our meals.


a chicken thigh on a bed of mashed potatoes topped with balsamic onions.

I found this recipe on and decided we should give it a try. This chicken came out very moist and juicy and had a great coloration especially for a crock pot chicken.

I varied from the original recipe somewhat and then also added sliced onions and this addition really made the dish come alive for us. Served here atop mashed potatoes, we could hardly believe this beautiful dish came from our crock pot! Enjoy.

Boneless chicken breasts can be used in this recipe but they can tend to be on the drier side. For this reason, we recommend chicken thighs.
