Back to school time does not just mean early mornings; it’s also the beginning of the crazy activity schedule.

Ours has already started with football practice four afternoons a week.

Time to break out the slow-cooker.
I love when I can throw ingredients in a pot in the morning, and know that when we return home, dinner will be waiting for us.

Typically, I don’t even measure.

This meal was so easy to put together, and it was delicious. The kids gobbled it up, and I enjoyed the leftovers for lunch.

Balsamic Chicken:
1 lb of chicken breasts
1 red onion sliced
3 – 4 sliced Roma tomatoes
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Drizzle the olive oil in the bottom of the slow cooker
add in the seasoned ย (with salt and pepper) chicken breasts
top with onion and tomatoes
finally add a good size drizzle of balsamic (about 1/3 – 1/2 cup)

cover and cook on low 6 – 8 hours

we served ours over orzo pasta
and of course added a sprinkle of Parmesan

but it would be great with any pasta or even rice
