Whoever came up with the phrase, “As easy as pie”, must not have owned a crock pot! THIS is easy. Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken – our game day and/or weeknight savior! 

I know what you’re thinking. Another chicken in the crock pot recipe?! OF COURSE! Would you rather me demonstrate how to prepare an Italian Salted Cod Fish? It takes an entire week! Let’s stick to what we know – crock pots and slow cookers. Err. what?

This slow cooked entree couldn’t be easier to prepare and it should come with a warning label: “CAREFUL! You’ll eat all of it in one sitting!”

I first tried this Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken last winter, right before completely running out of the best Balsamic Vinegar, STAR’s Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Gold Edition.
As soon as I got a new bottle, I made what is in front of you and we lived happily ever after.

STAR’s Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Gold Edition is the perfect balance of flavor and consistency. Because it’s aged in oak casks, it is thicker and the oak gives the vinegar a distinctive undertone. Last time, we used it in my Garlic and Rosemary Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin, and that is pretty much the tastiest pork of all. Don’t believe me? Read the comments.

Here’s the idea this time. Tomorrow night is Monday Night Football  AND!?! DA BEARS!  Yes, yes, Eagles, too… but let’s focus on the Bears.

If you are looking for something to serve, or even kill two birds with one stone – dinner and game-day-food – THIS chicken is your pal!

Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken - Light, easy, and perfect for weeknight dinners, or even game days, this flavorful chicken dish is cooked in the crock pot to a tender perfection with vegetables and balsamic vinegar.

You only need like 6-ish ingredients: a bit of STAR Olive Oil, some garlic, a few chicken breasts, nice full drizzle of STAR’s Balsamic Vinegar, couple of bell peppers, onions, seasoning, salt and pepper. And that is it!

That was more than 6 ingredients, buuuuut culinary professionals say not to count oil, salt, and pepper. Or water. At least, that’s what I’ve heard? To be honest, I barely remember what I talked about 5 minutes ago, so… I may not be a credible source.

ANYWHO!

Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken - Light, easy, and perfect for weeknight dinners, or even game days, this flavorful chicken dish is cooked in the crock pot to a tender perfection with vegetables and balsamic vinegar.

Perhaps the best part of the entire dish, aside from the tender, flavor-bursting chicken and veggies, is the fact that once you shred it, you can stuff this into burgers, or tacos, or eat it as is, straight from the pot. Which is in fact my favorite way to eat it because, low-carb and less dishes to wash.

ENJOY!

    1. Hi! Those two are actually two different things; balsamic vinaigrette contains balsamic vinegar, but there’s also olive oil in it, and garlic, and herbs, etc… Balsamic vinegar is a very dark, concentrated, and flavored vinegar made with grapes.

    This turned out amazing. I was shocked at how something so simple could have so much flavor. I didn’t add salt because of my blood pressure, but it was so delicious it didn’t need any! I wrapped it in flour tortillas and viola, a healthy balanced dinner was served. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for posting!

  2. Tanya

    i was thinking about mixing the vinegar with some brown sugar and a little bit of soy sauce to give it more of a bourbon sticky flavor..what are your thought

  3. taira turley

    I’m in the middle of making his dish I’m so excited to taste the outcome. i will be back to let you all know how it taste. I’ve also made the honey garlic chicken and the citrus soy chicken drumsticks. Both were a success and new household favorites. i love this site!!!

    1. Hi Gail! So, when you click on the “print” button within the recipe box, you are not given the option to just print the recipe without all the photos? Please let me know because that’s not what is supposed to happen. You should be taken to a screen with just the recipe box on it and no photos. If you have a minute, do let me know. Thank YOU!
