Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 celery stalks
  • ½ pound baby carrots
  • 1 pound beets
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, make the marinade. Whisk the thyme, Dijon mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cut the Brussels sprouts in quarters and again in half (so you get about 8 pieces from one sprout). In a large Ziploc bag, add the chicken and the Brussels sprouts to the marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to overnight (I like marinating it overnight so the next morning, I have less prep).
  2. Mince the garlic. Dice the onion. Chop the celery.
  3. Peel the beets and cut into small cubes. Place the onions, celery, and garlic in the bottom of the crockpot. Place the chicken with the marinade on top.
  4. Layer the carrots, beets, and Brussels sprouts around and on top of the chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours. Serve.
