This slow cooker vinegar chicken is absolutely divine! The chicken turns out so tender that it practically melts in your mouth, and the flavor is amazing, mainly because chicken, fresh tomatoes, and apple cider vinegar go so well together!
Anytime a recipe calls for vinegar of some kind, I always use apple cider vinegar (ACV). Yes, sometimes this changes the taste a bit, but I’ve never been disappointed with how something has turned out, and the health benefits of ACV can’t be denied. Some of those benefits are shown:
I also really prefer the taste of ACV over other vinegars, so that’s another reason that I always use it!
This recipe though! This stuff is amazing! I put it in the slow cooker in the morning, and then hubby and I went for a day date of running errands together (romantic, I know…). By the time we got back, our whole place smelled like a delicious Italian restaurant – YUM! When it did actually come time to have dinner, this did not disappoint! It is SO good! I paired it with some steamed cauliflower and snow peas, and it was fantastic!
