Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken adapted from Crock Pot Girls
4-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
2 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 onion thinly sliced (Not chopped)
4 garlic cloves
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 T olive oil
1 tsp each: dried oregano, basil, and rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme
ground black pepper and salt to taste
Directions:  Pour the olive oil on bottom of the crock pot.  Place chicken breasts in, 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 4 hours, serve over angel hair pasta.

Here's what you'll need:

Slice up an onion. (I left mine in rings)

Chop up the garlic cloves.

Put the seasoned (salt and pepper) chicken down in the crockpot.  Cover with onion and garlic.

Add the herbs.

Add the balsamic vinegar.

Add the diced tomatoes.

Cook for 4-6 hours. 
I took my chicken out and diced it up in to chunks and then returned it to the crock pot.

Serve over angel hair pasta.
Here's what you'll end up with:
Our Thoughts:
Once again, here is another easy crock pot meal.  I've seen this meal floating around the internet for a couple of weeks and thought I'd give it a try.

To be honest, it wasn't my favorite.  I really just thought it was OK.  The reason I'm posting it, though, because all three of my kids ate this dish and, as I've said before, that is always a success!  Caleb and Gracie even ate it again today for lunch . . . that never happens!

Scott and I actually thought the dish was a little bland with a tinge of tanginess from the vinegar.  I would definitely recommend serving it over pasta as the sauce of the vinegar and tomatoes really got soaked up by the angel hair pasta. 

Hope you enjoy!

Health is one of the many aspect in our life that we should take good care because if we are sick , we became useless and unimportant. We loose hope and everything became stagnant. Visit my site for more information. Thanks.
