(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 177 – Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken Thighs)

We really like chicken thighs cooked in the slow cooker.

They turn out much more moist and tender than chicken breasts.

The points plus value is a little higher but I think it’s worth it.

Life is too short to eat dry, stringy chicken, which can happen easily if you cook chicken breasts too long in the slow cooker.

Needless to say, I’m always on the lookout for simple, delicious crock pot chicken thigh recipes.

The Skinny on Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken Thighs

This Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken thighs recipe couldn’t be simpler or more Weight Watchers friendly.  Just season your chicken well with your favorite spice blend (I used Montreal Chicken Seasoning)  and pop them in the slow cooker. Then drizzle on balsamic vinegar and let them cook until tender.

If you want to pretty them up for serving, arrange the thighs on a platter and garnish with chopped fresh tomatoes and basil, creating a bruschetta effect.

Each serving has 172 calories and 4 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
