Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 4-6 hours

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (optional, for thickening sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional, for cornstarch mixture)

Instructions:

  1. Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Pour the mixture over the chicken breasts in the slow cooker.
  4. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 4-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  5. If desired, you can thicken the sauce by creating a cornstarch mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the slow cooker during the last 30 minutes of cooking.

  7. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and stir to coat it
