Watch how to make slow cooker balsamic chicken

Print this recipe
Balsamic vinegar is a brilliant ingredient that becomes sweeter and mellower with cooking. Its complex sharp/sweet flavor means that it adds real interest to a fairly straightforward dish, and makes its presence known but in an understated way.  Chicken thighs are used here, for more flavor and richness than breast, but don't hesitate to use chicken breast if that's what you have.
