This zesty, earthy chicken falls off the fork!

When you place the lid on top of your slow cooker, you leave your dinner in the hands of a machine, crossing your fingers that, hours later, a delicious meal will be waiting for you. As tired as you often are after the workday, you don’t need any surprises! And if you have a family to feed, you want that satisfaction that comes with serving a delicious meal and hearing your loved ones say, “Wow! That’s good!”

This simple dish is a no-brainer, finishing after 6 hours of cooking with an amazing tasty and tender chicken dinner every time. And although it may taste as if it were being served at a restaurant, it contains only low-fat, low-calorie ingredients that are high in quality. Lean chicken delivers a whopping dose of protein without the excess fat. Light soy sauce reduces the sodium content, and coconut sugar is a healthy substitute for refined white cane sugar, and does a great job of amping up this dish’s flavor profile without adding processed ingredients.

Try this delightful, zesty balsamic chicken with a whole grain side such as quinoa, farro, or brown rice. A helping of leafy greens complements this recipe perfectly, and rounds out your meal with nutrients and fiber. This chicken is versatile enough to pair with a number of healthy sides, so take your pick, and wow your family and friends.
