  • Summary

    Mustard Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Butternut Squash is a super simple crock pot recipe. I marinated the chicken overnight in a plastic bag and then just threw all the ingredients into the crock pot the next morning. The chicken was very moist and scrumptious. Butternut squash has Vitamin A and carotenoids which are amazing for your skin and eyes! I ate this with a side salad. Fantastic! This recipe was taken from a highly recommended cookbook: The Low-GI Slow Cooker: Delicious & Easy Dishes Made Healthy with the Glycemic Index by Dr. Mariza Snyder, Dr. Lauren Clum, and Anna V. Zulaica.

    • Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
