Weight Watchers Crockpot Balsamic Chicken and Veggies!

Hey everyone! I have the perfect low prep summer meal for you to try!!!

I saw an idea on Pinterest of course to make crockpot balsamic vinegar veggies so I decided to play around and make up a recipe and of course it is very Weight Watchers friendly! Here is is!!!!

WW Crockpot Balsamic Chicken and Veggies
Serves: 4-6 (depending on how many chicken thighs you use)
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 6 hours
Point Plus Value per serving: 5
  • 4-6 skinless bone in (or boneless if you prefer) chicken thighs
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pint of sliced mushrooms
  • 2 zucchini (chopped into bite size pieces)
  • 4 squash (chopped into bite size pieces)
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large crockpot place your chicken thighs at the bottom and season with salt and pepper
  2. Wash and prep all of your veggies and place all of them in a large mixing bowl. Mix all of the veggies with the balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce until all of the veggies are evenly coated.
  3. Pour the veggie and liquid mixture on top of the chicken in the crockpot. (This is where you make a quick judgment call).... I decided to add 1 cup of water on top of he veggies because a dry crockpot just makes me a little nervous. I would recommend adding some water before cooking, this just means when it comes time to scoop out he end result you will need a slotted spoon.
  4. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours.
  5. Scoop out your chicken (carefully because it will be SO tender it might fall apart) and your veggies! Serve alone or with brown rice for an added treat! 
That is it guys! This recipe is so great because you can add or take away whatever veggies your family likes! It is a perfect recipe to use those fresh local veggies you buy at your local farmers market this time of year! And is even better because veggies are 0 points plus!!! Hope you enjoy!
