Balsamic Glazed Chicken

Author: Rachel Oberg – De Ma Cuisine
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 whole chicken, giblets removed (you can use them to make stock)
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 C water
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 C water
  • 3/4 C balsamic vinegar
  1. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper in bottom of Crock Pot. Add chicken. Drizzle chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour 1 C water into bottom of Crock Pot. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 5-6 hours (or until temperature inserted into thickest part of meat comes to 180F).
  2. Whisk together cornstarch, 1/2 C water, and balsamic vinegar. Pour into a small saucepan over medium heat. As it gets warm, it will start to thicken. Whisk, and be careful that it doesn’t burn. It should only take a few minutes.
  3. Halfway through cooking time, brush chicken with glaze (or if you’re not going to be home, brush with glaze when you put chicken in at the beginning).
  4. Right before serving, brush a little more glaze on the chicken.
Would be yummy with Caramelized Brussels Sprouts, polenta, potatoes, or a simple pasta.
