  • 1 boneless and skinless chicken breast about 6 ounces
  • 1 cup chunky salsa sugar-free
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar


  • Add the chicken breasts to a 2- or 3-quart slow cooker and pour the salsa and balsamic vinegar on top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. Shred the cooked chicken with a fork and mix it into the salsa mixture.
  • TIP: This recipe makes delicious tacos or burritos. If desired, add additional garnishes, like lettuce or cheese. It also makes great sandwiches when served on buns.
