  • Tis the season for everything slow cooker. While I love the ease of using a slow cooker, the length of cooking commonly muddies the flavors, resulting in over seasoning on the back end.  On the flip side, I adore how tender meats are after being steamed and locking in the moisture.  Slow Cooker Apple Balsamic Chicken uses apple jelly, robust balsamic vinegar and apple juice to maintain maximum flavor. 

    Slow Cooker Apple Balsamic Chicken- full of taste, low on time, apple jelly, apple juice and balsamic vinegar give this dish loads of flavor! Serve over buttered rice or egg noodles. Slow Cooker Apple Balsamic can be made with any cut of chicken, however I prefer to use a healthy chicken breast.  I serve mine over lightly buttered rice, but I think I will try buttered egg noodles next time as well. Add baby carrots to the slow cooker for a well rounded meal.
