Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken

Loved this light chicken recipe. Also, loving crock pot recipes. Super easy. Really good served over whole grain pasta and with any sort of vegetable.

Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken
Source: Skinny Crock Pot

4-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts

2 14.5 oz can diced or crushed tomatoes (I think 1 would work as well)

1 onion thinly sliced

4 garlic cloves

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tblsp olive oil

1 tsp each: dried oregano,basil, and rosemary

1/2 tsp thyme

ground black pepper and salt to taste

Another add in idea - mushrooms

Pour the olive oil on bottom of a 3 - 5 quart crock pot
Place the chicken breasts in crock pot, salt and pepper each breast
Put sliced onion on top of chicken
Then put in all the dried herbs and garlic cloves
Pour in vinegar and top with tomatoes
Cook on high 3 hours or low for 4 - 6 hours. Serve over angel hair pasta and garnish with fresh parsley or basil.
