Slow Cooker 2-Ingredient Balsamic Chicken

Tender, moist bites of shredded chicken flavored with a light balsamic dressing. With literally only 2 ingredients and the fact that it’s made in the crockpot, this recipe couldn’t be easier to make. This balsamic chicken tastes great on salads, over rice or with a baked potato.


Units Scale
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (I used frozen)
  • 1/2 cup Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Dressing, divided


  1. Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Drizzle the chicken with 1/4 cup of the dressing (reserve the rest of the dressing for later).
  2. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours if chicken is thawed and 6-8 hours if chicken is frozen.
  3. Remove lid. Drain off excess liquid (mine had a lot of liquid since the chicken was frozen). Shred the chicken.
  4. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the shredded chicken and stir lightly.
  5. Serve chicken over salad or with rice or a baked potato.


I used my 6 quart slow cooker for this recipe.
