Chicken Slow Cooked With Sweet Balsamic Vinegar, Dijon Mustard And A Touch of Honey and Lemon!

Our Fall Off The Bone Chicken is delicious Slow Cooked in the Crockpot or Slow Cooked in the Oven! Chicken Dinners are frequent in our home, so coming up with different creations with ingredients we use all the time can be challenging! This recipe was inspired by our Grilled Chicken with Balsamic which is perfect for Barbecuing! With this Chicken Recipe, we usually slow cook them in the oven but the convenience of throwing everything in the Crockpot and letting it cook all day is perfect for busy lives! The flavors of Balsamic Vinegar and Dijon Mustard marinate slowly while cooking and create delicious, flavorful tender Chicken! This is definitely a Family Favorite Creation!

5. Slow cook on Low Temperature For 2 Hours, then it will be time to Baste the Chicken!

Tip: We use a ladle! We think basting our meats is important for more flavor and tenderness!

After basting the Chicken, Move the Chicken on the Bottom to the Top and the Chicken on the Top to the Bottom!
(This helps make sure all the Chicken cooks evenly and all the Chicken will be Flavored evenly!)
This photo shows that process! Don’t be fooled, this is NOT done!
