    This picture above is not this recipe. This picture is from Basil Lime Chicken that does not have balsamic. A blogger I know is the one who made up this recipe and this is the web address to this actual chicken.

    Would this be ok cooking 10 hours on low heat? I've seen similar time modifications to crockpot recipes

    I made this yesterday with boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I did not have dried onion so I used a fresh onion, grated on my microplane, and put it in the bottom of the pot with the garlic and oil. I cooked on low all day long. I skimmed some of the sauce and put it in a saucepan, reduced somewhat, then added a slurry so I had a gravy. My family LOVED it. Personally, I don't eat meat or chicken, so I can only go by my family. They all said it was a "make again" meal!

    Can add a jar of Cherry Preserves and 1/2 sliced red onion instead of minced onion to make this recipe.
