Cooking Creations: Thyme Crockpot Chicken

Just a quick post of a delicious and easy crockpot supper.  All of the ingredients are fresh or dried with nothing from a can.  Plus the chicken didnt look anemic like crockpot meat often does.  In fact, it tasted so good and looked pretty enought that I could serve this to guests or clients.

Thyme Crockpot Chicken
3-4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
2 tsp dried thyme
6 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup orange juice
4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 8oz package mushrooms, chopped or whole

Place chicken in the crock.  Sprinkle with thyme, garlic, and salt.  Pour on vinegar and orange juice.  Scatter mushrooms on top of the chicken.  Cook on high for 2 1/2 hours or on low for 5 hours.  Add more salt if desired.  Garnish with fresh or dried thyme

Variation:  I considered taking the liquid in the crock and adding cream, and making a sauce for the dish.   It would probably take about 10 minutes stovetop.
