Balsamic vinegar is fantastic with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, but in colder months we love this hot version of caprese. It's more substantial, too, since it puts chicken in the starring role. A slow cooker's low, slow heat helps mellow out the sometimes sharp-tasting balsamic, and makes a deeply flavored, thick sauce, keeping even breast meat, which often dries out in the Crock-Pot, supermoist.
