  • 8 Bone-In Chicken Breasts (Or use what you have) 
  • 1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinegar

  • 4 Garlic cloves minced
  • 2 Teaspoons dried basil 
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano 
  • ¼ Teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 Teaspoon salt 
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley 
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 



  • Combine the balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, and garlic. 
  • Then mix the seasonings and either equally distribute them onto each piece of chicken before adding it to the slow cooker 
  • Or – mix the seasonings in with the balsamic combination and toss in the crockpot. 
  • Cook on low for 7 hours or high for 4. 
  • For a crispy finish –  broil for 5 minutes (only if you’re using skin-on chicken – otherwise you’ll be very disappointed:) 


Feel free to use any chicken – swap breasts with thighs – use skinless – use skin-on, boneless or bone-in
