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.

So for this recipe. I took fresh basil, about 5 large leaves and sliced then diced it. Thinly sliced onion rings (did I say thin?), I also took 8 white mushrooms and sliced them very thin as well, and about 1/2 cup of dices parsley, add all of that with 2 tablespoons of evoo and about 3/4 cups do balsmic. Salt and pepper the skin on bone in chicken thighs, added everything into the crockpot and stirred to coat. Cooked on high for 31/2 hrs-4 hours.

Make an Italian risotto and scoop a heaping of this chick on top of the cook risotto. Best Italian dinner that I did not have to spend hours in the kitchen.

Easy to make, very versatile! I used the chicken as part of a salad for lunches as well as paired it up with a veggie for supper. Shared the recipe with several friends and they loved it too!

We loved this recipe. If you like the taste of Balsamic Vinegar, you will love this very tender chicken. I used garlic in a jar and it was fine.Really tender. Served it with brown rice and spooned the sauce on the rice.

We loved it...flavor was wonderful and the chicken was very tender (but dry). Had it with brown rice and fresh roasted green beans.
