Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken with Spring Vegetables

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time8 minutes
Servings - 4 persons

Ingredients 

  • about 1.25 lbs. chicken breasts, or other chicken cut
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 2 Tbsp red cooking wine (I only added this because I had just enough left and thought it would be a good flavor complement. Which it was. Totally optional. Don't buy it if you don't have it on hand.)
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • 2 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 orange pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 red onion, cut into chunks
  • Salt and pepper
  • Rice, as side dish

Instructions

  • Place the chicken pieces in the base of the slow cooker. Drizzle about 1 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar over the chicken. Add the red cooking wine (optional) around the chicken as well. Gently toss the zucchini, squash, pepper pieces and onion pieces around and on top of the chicken. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours.
  • Before dinner, prepare the rice as directed.
  • Serve Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken with Spring Vegetables over rice.
