Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken

FullSizeRender

There’s nothing easier when it comes to cooking than a crock pot. I love the convenience of being able to throw everything into it, set the temperature and go about my day. Coming home and having dinner ready to plate with no extra fuss is genius. The best part is you can cook just about anything from breakfast to dinner to dessert in it with very little time spent in the kitchen. It’s a great way to meal plan if you don’t have the time to prepare them ahead of time. Chicken always works well when cooked this way. Being able to cook in a liquid, either broth or a sauce, allows it to retain moisture making dry chicken almost impossible. This particular recipe uses chicken thighs and a glaze. It’s not only simple and healthy but can be served with any sort of side dish. Plate with some roasted vegetables for a light meal or on top of gluten-free pasta for a more hearty meal and dinner is served!
