Balsamic Chicken

Balsamic Chicken

It’s so easy, and can be served over pasta, rice, or quinoa. Nate loves it because it sort of reminds him on spaghetti. We call it “Bruschetta Chicken.” Hope you can give it a try! I will be honest, this has a very nice, mild taste. I think in the future I will go heavier on the balsamic, because I love it and like a kick to my food. This is the original way I have done it though, and it is a crowd pleaser in our family.


  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained (I prefer petite diced when I have them)
  • 1/4 c balsamic
  • 1/4 c EVOO
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (I use the frozen cubes from @traderjoeslist)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Place 3-4 chicken breasts in the crock pot (can put a diced onion underneath if you desire but not necessary)
  2. pour everything else over the top!
  3. Set on LOW and allow 4-6 hours to cook
  4. shred and serve!

Goes great with quinoa or brown rice with roasted green beans on the side. Add a nice balsamic glaze drizzle on top because it’s fancy!
