  3. This recipe sounds absolutely delicious!! I just recently found out (only a week ago) that I need to be on a gluten free diet. So I have been trying to come up with new and exciting ways to eat chicken, as it is one of those proteins that I have never loved without being breaded or fried. I will definitely be making this this weekend, thank you so much for sharing!

    Chicken is my favorite meat! I could eat it all the time, many different ways and not get tired of it! I don’t know if all of our chicken is grain-fed, free of hormones and steroids. I love cooking with the crockpot. It is easy! I usually put in all the veggies that you do like the recipe above & walk alway! It will taste like I’ve been slaving over the hot stove all day. I will try the brown sugar and balsamic vinegar next time! Sounds very yummy ???? Thank you for sharing!

I just combine chicken breast, BBQ sauce (homemade or bottled), a diced onion, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, and brown sugar in the slow cooker. I like it best on low for 8 hours, yum!
