Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Portabella

  Ok, who wants to be in charge of stenciling the words “no chicken breasts” onto the top of my crock pot?  I did it again and slow cooked chicken and was disappointed.  Those flavor combinations just sounded too tempting though!
1lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 large or 2 medium pears, cored and sliced thick
10 oz portabella mushrooms, sliced thick
1/2 c balsamic vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
  Put everything into the crock pot and let cook it for about 4-6 hours on low, or until chicken falls apart easily.
  There wasn’t enough moisture and the chicken wound up dry and tough.  I should know by now!  The flavors were really good together, but good flavor on shoe leather still isn’t particularly appetizing.  We do have a few ideas for making this either on the stove top or in the oven to take advantage of the flavor combination, but for now we’re going to call this a fail!
