Ingredients

  • 4

    chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (1.5 – 2 lbs)

  • ½

    teaspoon black pepper

  • Kosher or sea salt to taste

  • 1

    teaspoon coriander

  • 1

    teaspoon chili powder

  • ¼

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1

    tablespoon Dijon Mustard

  • 2

    tablespoons honey

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • cups pomegranate juice, (no sugar added)

  • 1

    tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Directions

In a small mixing bowl combine all the herbs and spices. Whisk together in a large mixing bowl the herbs, spices and the extra virgin olive oil. Rinse chicken, pat dry with a paper towel. Coat chicken with the herb and oil mixture, place in the slow-cooker. Note: this method of rubbing olive oil on the chicken before adding to the slow-cooker helps to seal in the moisture. Whisk together in a medium mixing bowl Dijon mustard, honey, minced garlic, pomegranate juice and balsamic vinegar...pour over chicken. Turn slow cooker to low and cook 4 - 6 hours on low. After chicken is done remove from the slow cooker, place on a serving platter and drizzle with liquid. This extra moist chicken pairs nicely with a small side of pasta. If using the Set 'n Forget Slow Cooker, program the temperature to 165 degrees or follow manufacturer's instructions. Slow Cooker size 5-7 quarts.
