Slow Cooker 2-Ingredient Balsamic Chicken
I have realized that when it comes to crockpot recipes the easier and less ingredients the better. So I’m going to try and come up with more recipes that have 5 ingredients or less in them. This is my first attempt of the new year to come up with this type of recipe. And I must say that I am very happy with the results. This recipe is simply boneless, skinless chicken thighs and a little bit of Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Dressing. You cook the chicken on low for 4-6 hours until the chicken is tender and shreddable. The taste is amazing and I loved eating this chicken on salad.
Can I just tell you something? I absolutely love Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Dressing. My friend told me about it a few months ago and it has made my life so much better. How you ask? This dressing makes me excited to eat salads for lunch every day. And eating salads makes me feel healthier. And when I feel healthy I feel happy. So yay to this dressing! I’ve tried other balsamic dressings before but they aren’t as good. I promise, you will love this dressing. So pay the dollar extra for Newman’s Own brand instead of the store brand and you won’t regret it.

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
For Slow Cooker 2-Ingredient Balsamic Chicken I used my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker. I love this slow cooker (you can see me talking about it in a video here). It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.
