Slow Cooker Peach Balsamic Chicken Bowls are a simple and fresh summer meal perfect for weeknight family dinners!
Fresh ripe fruits and veggies, farmers markets and warm summer days! Why in the world would you use your slow cooker? Because slow cooking during the summer helps you get the best of both worlds!! You can use it for meals that aren't just soup and these Slow Cooker Peach Balsamic Chicken Bowls are the perfect example! Use your slow cooker to make an amazingly flavorful and juicy chicken that pairs well with all the fresh summer produce for a super easy, super fresh meal any night of the week!
I chose peach for my main flavor here because we are right in the peak of fresh peach season. If you love to be creative in the kitchen, you could basically just customize this for whatever fresh fruit you want to feature! Or a combo of fruits if you want to get really crazy 😉
And one of my favorite combos to go with peach? Blueberry! Plenty of fresh blueberries in the bowl!
And not to be left out? Some of that awesome summer sweet corn. Fresh and crisp it gives just the right amount of crunch to these bowls.
Layer it all on top of your favorite grain. My choice is nearly always farro these days, but quinoa or brown rice or even barley would be wonderful choices. Add some hummus, fresh herbs and maybe a few of those little grape tomatoes you always have on hand and you've got the summer meal bowl to beat all bowls!
