Fave Chicken Recipes!

Since Sunday is food prep day for most people, I thought I'd share some of my favorite chicken recipes.  My meat sources are usually just turkey and chicken, so making my chicken a different way every week keeps me from getting bored with it. I usually cook my meat for the week ahead of time, unless we run out mid-week, then I'll just cook it up fresh for dinner. Hope you try and like some of them!

Balsamic Crockpot chicken
2 pounds chicken breast

Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper, basil, oregano, onion powder, thyme, and garlic.

Put 1-2 tbsp olive oil in crockpot.
Add chicken to crockpot and cover with about 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar. Can also top with diced tomatoes.
Cook on low for 8hrs or high for 4hrs.

  1. Hey! Thank you for posting these. I'm always looking for quick and easy chicken recipes. I made the chicken rub marinade last night on my Foreman grill - good combo. Would not have put oregano on it on my own - I liked it with the cumin and garlic!

    Will try a couple of other ones this week. Appreciate it!
