Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken

Crock pot meals save me. I saw this one on Facebook, and had to try it.  And everyone loved it, so it's now on the "repeat" list!


1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 24 ounces) or breasts
sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley


Combine the first five dry spices in a small bowl and spread over chicken on both sides. Rub spices into the chicken. Set aside. Pour olive oil and garlic on the bottom of the crock pot. Place chicken on top. Pour balsamic vinegar over the chicken. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8. Sprinkle with fresh parsley on top to serve.
