How many evenings have you come home from work, wishing that something truly hearty, gourmet, and delicious was waiting for you in the kitchen? Too often, that feeling drives us to pick up the phone and order takeout, but you can easily prepare a restaurant-quality meal, minus the typical restaurant amounts of calories and fat, in just a few simple steps. Our balsamic chicken recipe boats only three ingredients and can be tossed in the slow cooker in the morning, only to fill your house with fragrance, throughout the day, cooking to perfection by the time you return home in the evening.
