Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken (Low Soduim)

Submitted by: APRILDAWN678

Introduction

This is a dish I came up with on my quest for low sodium meals for my boyfriend. I was in the mood for something Italian... it turned out very moist and flavorful. Leftovers freeze well.

    Delishious! It cooked in 1/2 time (full X would dry out the meat!) I turned it to warm, still was simmering an hour later so ate for lunch. I added a can of artichoke hearts, about 6 Kalamata olives cut up, 1 sm sweet potato diced, near the end diced broccoli & tomato . Serve w/brown rice YUMMO - 5/1/12

    I added a can of tomatoes and sliced mushrooms for the vegetables. Also added some homemade salt free chicken stock. Served it over Whole Wheat Penne Pasta with a little Parm. Cheese sprinkled on the top. One must like balsamic vinegar I think to enjoy this recipe - 3/4/11

    This is going in my cookbook. Its super easy and has a lot of flavor. I added more vinegar so it wouldn't dry out--and both my husband and I were very pleased with how good it was! - 1/10/09

    Loved it, I prepared it a little differently. Cooked onions, garlic, until translusent. added veggies, browned chicken w/ 1/2 tsp olive oil. made up balsamic vinegar and spices, added veggies to chicken, poured over sauce, covered and let it cook 35 m inutes. If you want more liquid, just make more - 10/22/08

    Delicious~ I sliced in tomato that I had and added some diced red potatoes that I needed to use. This required a little additional broth; I used about a half cup. Dinner's done for tonight! - 8/26/08

    It was easy and I thought that the taste was okay but the veggies were mushy. I think if I made it again, I would add the veggies about an hour before serving, or I would use fresh veggies instead. - 5/11/13

    Sounds Great but what is the serving size? - 11/29/08

  • Looks interesting but sure wish the amount per serving was indicated. 10 servings seems like they would be so very small with the recipe. Who wants to make it and then try to divide into 10! - 3/21/13

    If all healthy food tasted like this I would gladly stay a porker for the rest of my life! - 5/9/12

  • I made this last night and it was great! Only issue we had with it was the taste of the sauce was very overpowering on the vegis. We couldn't get any more than two spoonfuls down. Next time, I'll wait until about 30min-an hour before I put in the vegis. Other than that, it was DELICIOUS! - 1/8/12

  • It is very easy to prepare, but I found that it looked pretty dry after a couple of hours. I added some chicken broth, but the chicken still turned out dry. The vegetables had some of the good balsamic flavor, but overall it just wasn't great. I'm glad I tried it though. - 12/21/10

  • Perhaps I did something wrong but I thought it was kind of dry and without a lot of flavor and so ended up sprinkling Parmesan cheese on it for want of something. - 10/8/08
