Simple Slow Cooker Bruschetta Chicken

All of this just gets thrown into a crockpot or slow cooker on low for 5-6 hours (easy for overnight) or on high for 3-4 hours.  It is so yummy!
What You Need:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts.
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (more if you are using it as a sauce for rice or pasta)
2 cans of diced tomatoes and green chilis (no need to drain)
1 medium onion (sliced, not chopped)
2 Tbs. minced garlic
2 Tbs. basil
1 Tbs. oregano
1 tsp. rosemary
1/2 tsp. thyme
Ground pepper & ground sea salt to taste
Optional: If you don’t mind the calories, add a little bit of shredded mozzarella before serving.
This recipe really needs the basil, however, if you do not have the other herbs, you can omit or sub the rosemary & thyme.  You can also use an Italian Seasoning Blend.  Use what you have!  This is excellent served over a bed of pasta, brown rice or quinoa and served with a green vegetable and crispy garlic bread.  This can also be made on the stove top.  Cook chicken in a skillet w/ a couple Tbs. of olive oil, lower temperature and add the rest of the ingredients.  Cover and simmer until onions are soft.  Cut chicken to ensure it’s cooked through and enjoy! My slow cooker has gotten more use on the Fast Metabolism Diet than it has in the last year.  I love throwing everything in and having delicious (good for you) meals!  What are some of your favorite slow cooker dishes?
