For on a day when you don't have much time to cook and don't want to spend ages in the kitchen, this dish is perfect.
Ok so it's not the prettiest looking chicken, but it sure makes up for it with flavour! and it is so tender too...
Syn free on extra easy.
4 large chicken breasts, or you could use thighs with all the skin and fat removed.
1 tsp garlic salt
2 tsps dried onions
1 tbsp dried mixed herbs
½ cup balsamic vinegar
2 star anise
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp tabasco sauce (optional)
Mix together the garlic salt, dried herbs, dried onion and rub into the chicken.
Lay the chicken into a frylight spray slow cooker and pour over the balsamic vinegar, add the star anise and season.
Cook on high for 4 hours.
When cooked remove the chicken, pour the marinade into a saucepan add the tabasco if using and simmer down by half, use this as a sauce over the chicken.
I served the chicken with baked sweet potatoes and roasted thin asparagus.
The sweetness and creaminess of the potato cut through the tang of the sauce. Perfect combination!
