This brown sugar and balsamic slow cooker chicken recipe is oh so flavourful, tender and it’s a complete meal all done in a slow cooker. You can throw in your favourite vegetables, and potatoes and only have one pot or in this case, one slow cooker to clean afterwards.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 1 ½ lbs baby red potatoes, sliced in half
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
  • ⅔ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons concentrated beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 lb fresh green beans


  1. In a large slow cooker, add the olive oil and minced garlic. Add the carrots and sliced potatoes, then place the chicken around and on top of all the veggies.
  2. In a small dish, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, beef broth, honey, brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of the kosher salt. Drizzle sauce over the chicken and veggies, then sprinkle the remaining teaspoon of salt over the top.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, adding the green beans with 30 minutes remaining on cook time. Enjoy!
