Crock Pot Recipes – Balsamic Chicken Thighs

Simple enough for any weeknight meal. Delicious enough for company. With a few ingredients and 4 hours in your crock pot you have have the most tender, mouthwatering chicken the whole family will love!

Pair it with any side dishes you like. It makes a nice light sauce so some healthy brown rice pasta would work well.
Or if you are avoiding potatoes at the moment add some nice veggies or salads.
Using boneless chicken thighs is best for perfect tender and juicy chicken, but of course you could always use chicken breast if you’re not a fan of dark meat. My family loved this chicken and each child asked for seconds of it which rarely ever happens! Don’t be worried about the balsamic flavor, it is subtle and not strong at all. The kids will only notice how moist and tasty the chicken is, I promise!
