Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

If you follow my blogs you know I don't eat chicken. However, it does seem to be a favorite of many of you readers. I am posting this for you after being told it is an excellent recipe.

4 chicken breasts (500g/17 oz)
– 1 tbsp oil
– A pinch of sea salt and black pepper
– 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
– 6 tomatoes, diced
– 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
– 8 basil leaves, diced
– 60ml (quarter cup) of balsamic vinegar

1) Put the sliced onion at the bottom of the slow cooker and then put the chicken breasts on top and then add the olive oil and season with the salt and pepper.
2) Add the tomatoes, garlic and basil and then pour the balsamic vinegar on top.
3) Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.
