Hot or cold, you can use it as a way to make salads heartier or serve it over rice or pasta. If you’re in the mood for tacos, this makes a great filling instead of beef or refried beans. Shred the chicken and serve it between two buns or bread in sandwich form. The possibilities are endless! There are so many ways to enjoy this fabulous slow cooker chicken dish that you’ll never get tired of eating it.

Spice Up Your Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken

If you like a spicy kick in your food, try using medium or hot salsa. Another tasty option is fruit salsas. If you make it with a fruit salsa like mango or peach, you could pair this chicken dish with a fruit salad for a complete meal. Green salsa also works well with this dish.

One thing we love about this recipe is how versatile it is. You can do more than just swap out the salsa flavors to create whole new meals. Try adding corn or green beans (just make sure you account for this change when figuring out your smart points!)
