What Makes This Recipe Great?

Taco night is always the best night of the week and making the meat in a slow cooker makes it even better! With minimal ingredients this slow cooker balsamic taco chicken basically says the whole list in the name. It of course has balsamic vinegar, taco seasoning, some tomato sauce and chicken! You just throw all of that in your slow cooker and cook it for a few hours for the most tender and delicious taco chicken. I have a big issue with any taco meat that is dry and doesn’t have much flavor. This chicken is coated in sauce so you get tons of moist flavor with every bite. The meat goes great on a taco bowl too or even in a quesedilla! If you love balsamic vinegar, chances are you will love the tang it brings to this taco chicken. The recipe is also versitile and can be made in the instant pot very quickly!
