Using the slow cooker is one of the best ways to prepare food because it’s so EASY!! I’m a lazy cook, so I’m always looking for ways to make preparing food as painless as possible…and if I can have leftovers, even better! :)

This Tomato Balsamic Slow Cooker Chicken recipe can be prepped in under 10 minutes and then left to cook on its own while you’re at work.


– 6-8 pieces of Chicken (I used thighs and legs, but breasts would work also) Note: using frozen chicken will work too
– 1 can of passata (strained tomatoes) or diced tomatoes
– 1 onion, sliced
– 8-10 garlic cloves (more or less depending on your preference)
– 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
– 2 tsp Italian seasoning


1. Place chicken pieces in the bottom of the slow cooker (crock pot).
