A delicious Sunday Supper that would also serve well for a midweek meal this Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Crock Pot Chicken is simple and loaded with flavor.  A sweet glaze that compliments the chicken well and creates a savory dish to appeal to the whole family.  My kids love a sweet  dish on the table and dig right into this chicken! Serve with rice, potatoes or pasta, and a healthy green vegetable to round it out for a filling dinner.

  1. Wonderful recipe. The only thing I’d add is using non-process, unrefined salt like Celtic Salt or Himalayan or something like that and avoiding regular table salt because it’s really unhealthy for the body. I’ll have to give this recipe a try, I love chicken!

      • I cooked it for 4 hours on high and it was WAYYYY overdone! Chicken was dry and stringy. However it was very flavourful. I would make it again but I think I would try it in the oven.

  2. I love crock pot meals; they are so easy but seem as though you put so much more effort into them than you actually did. 😉 Like Felissa and Angel, I don’t eat meat, but my husband loves chicken and I often make it for him and “his boys” when they are watching football. They would devour this recipe! 😉

  3. This sounds really yummy! And, I can only imagine how tasty the house will smell while it’s cooking. I will be adding this to my next couple weeks of menus. Thanks!

    • Yes! Another reason I love the slow cooker the whole house smells amazing! Let me know what you though of it after you try it out.

  4. Stopping by from the Weekend Retreat Link party, This looks so delicious. Anything with balsamic is amazing to me I also love how its a crock pot meal, so it makes it an easy to make dinner! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Thanks for stopping by Ciara, let me know if you give it a try and what you thought of the recipe.

  5. Made this on the weekend, did not turn out at all like the picture, very soupy, not a glaze at all. Not sure how it would even be possible to reduce something down to a glaze in a crockpot, since typically you end up with more liquid at the end of crockpot cooking then you start with. Just me maybe, I hope someone else has better luck!

    • I’m sorry Paula this was not a success for you. I have made this several times and always comes out perfectly in my crockpot, I cook mine closer to the 6 hour mark. Maybe after it is done cooking try reducing it on the stove top to get more of a glaze to cover or adding a bit more cornstarch to thicken it up. Hope that helps 🙂

    • Did you use frozen chicken breasts? Mine is looking soupy too, maybe thats why…..melted water….? Its made more liquid than I put in, I’ll try the skillet glazing!

      • I have used frozen when I am in a rush and it does become a little more liquidy than Id like but the flavor is still there. When it is to watery for me I glaze the liquid on the stove. 🙂

  6. Made this today & it’s one of the most wonderful chicken recipes I’ve had! Accidentally dumped to much corn starch in, so after scooping out what I could I added more water & Balsamic. Had a nice, sweet, thick sauce, even after thinning it. Hubby says this is a definite keeper! Thank you for the recipe!! 🙂

  7. I didn’t read through all the comments so maybe someone tried this but I’m going to try it on slow cooked pork chops, and it seems like it would do well on a pork shoulder or tenderloin. Thx!

  8. Over the last year, I had been in search of a good balsamic chicken recipe. I tested quite a few recipes and some were OK. I came across this recipe a few weeks ago and it was a little different than the others that I had tried. I threw it together and it turned out so delicious!! It was exactly what I had been looking for. I am actually making it for dinner tonight! Thanks for the recipe!

  9. I have this cooking right now. It is very thin and liquidity. None of the ingredients stayed on the top of the chicken. I hope it tastes better than it looks! I think maybe the sauce should be made and placed on the chicken after it is cooked.

  10. Love this recipe, I tweaked it a little added a couple extra stuff and I did have to reduce the sauce on the stovetop, I used frozen chicken breast so it was a little soupy but it turned out wonderful after the sauce was reduced. Thanks for this recipe it is wonderful.

    • Might I suggest for those who found this a bit ‘soupy’ to add the cornflour (mixed with a little water) well towards the
      end of the cooking time. I’ve yet to make this dish – the flavours look superb – will give you a ‘heads up’ hopefully soon.

  11. Hi, Would this still come out good if I don’t have the mustard powder? I have regular yellow mustard. Should I substitute that (how much?) or should I simply omit the mustard?

    Cant wait to try this!

    • You can add a tiny bit of regular mustard or omit it. My family likes the flavor so I wouldnt leave it out 🙂

  12. For those of us doing Weight Watchers, if you use 4 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts and use 4 ounces of cooked chicken per serving, it’s only 3 points. This does not include rice. Will make tonight and use dijon mustard instead of dry. Sounds really great–thanks for sharing.

  13. I have this in the crock pot now…it looks very soupy–nothing like the photo. Smells good, but looks awful. I will try to reduce the liquid on the stove. I did not use frozen chicken breasts, and it’s been cooking for about 5 hours.
