5 minutes of prep for a super easy weeknight Crock Pot Balsamic ChickenDo dinners get any better than when they take 5 minutes of prep and then cook all day in a crock pot?  No.  The answer is definitively no. Especially with this Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken!  I didn’t know it was possible, but these days we seem busier than ever.  Between all the baby prep classes we’re taking in the evenings and all the nesting projects I have half started all over the house and yard, elaborate cooking has been put on the back burner (pun intended).  But really, as I’ve said in the past, cooking from scratch doesn’t mean it has to be elaborate or time consuming!  This dinner seriously took 5 minutes to prep and then slow cooked all day in our crock pot.  With some 10 minute Garlic Kale as a side, we had a ridiculously easy and low maintenance dinner that was also uber tasty. 5 minutes of prep for a super easy weeknight Crock Pot Balsamic ChickenEasy.
