Update and additional notes by Donna Sullivan Smith

I have cooked this meal. It is great. I did a couple of extra things if it helps anyone.
1. Browned my chicken with a little flour, salt, and pepper in coconut oil (it just looked better to me)!
2. After putting the chicken into the crock pot, I took the drippings, added a little more oil, the herbs, garlic, onion and cooked until soft – added vinegar and tomatoes to deglaze everything – then, placed into crock pot. Worked out really well!

    @Slammie, I am a dark meat person also, and if you do skin on in a crockpot the skin turns out slimy, I don’t know where you live, but here in Mo. they have boneless skinless chicken thigh cutlets, that is what I use! Works great!

    Do you know if it would work well with thighs or drumsticks with the skin on? Thanks!

      I have not cooked any chicken with the skin on because I always though it may turn out gooey. It wont get that crispy, cooked finish you may be looking for. I don’t think it would hurt to do it, I would remove the skin before serving or just remove it altogether.

    instead of quipping over who invented it, has anyone actually tried it and is it any good?

      We’ve done a variation of this. If you’re a fan of Balsamic Vinegar, You’ll enjoy it. See there… no quipping. hahaha… maybe a smirk though. 😉

      Gregg…Would you just message the creator, Leslie Marshall on Facebook. She also has a page called Dishing With Leslie.She can tell you more. I know one ingrediant is different on here than on hers, but I know they got it from her because the directions are the same and the colons are in the same spots. So it was obviously copied. I would really appriciate and she would too! She already is aware of this and has asked me to ask you to message her. I really appriciate your quick response! Thanks 🙂
