  • Combine the first five dry spices in a small bowl and spread over chicken on both sides.
  • Set aside.
  • Pour olive oil and garlic on the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour in ¼ cup balsamic vinegar.
  • Place chicken on top.
  • Sprinkle remaining balsamic vinegar over the chicken.
  • Cover and cook on low for 3 hours if using boneless, if using bone in thighs, high for 2-3 hours. If you have an older slow cooker you may need to cook another hour. 
  • Sprinkle with fresh parsley on top to serve.


This recipe was one of my first published on my blog in November of 2012!  I finally updated the pictures in 2018 and updated with video in February 2020.
