Recipe

This is one of my favorite slow cooker chicken recipes. There is just something special about the sweet and tangy flavor from the balsamic vinegar paired with the tomatoes, sweet onion, spinach, and chicken breast. Pair it with creamy polenta, angel hair pasta, or quinoa. It also makes a great base for a soup with some added chicken or vegetable broth. I like to dump in some extra veggies during the last hour of cooking to up the nutritional content. Usually I reach for fresh mushrooms, kale, or other hearty greens to round out the recipe.

    This recipe is wonderful! It was so easy - dump ingredients in and sit back with a glass of wine and wait. Also so good for you. I added green beans (at the last half hour with the spinach), along with fresh rosemary, basil and thyme. So flavourful and the chicken was perfectly cooked.

    This was so easy to make, and yet, tasted amazing! I made enough to have leftovers throughout the week and the chicken remained juicy until the last meal! I served it over some white Japanese rice and it was perfect!

    I'm surprised that I'm the first to leave a review for a recipe that's so easy and delightful. We love this meal! Chicken tasted scrumptious, and was perfectly tender. I didn't add the Italian seasonings and I was glad I didn't because the combination of the spice from the ground pepper and balsamic vinegar was just perfect for us. We had this for dinner two nights in a row, both with angel hair pasta. The second night's dinner was a bit spicy because of the ground pepper I used, but we like spicy food so we didn't mind the change in taste at all, it was just as delicious.
