- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 2 Tbsp fresh thyme
- 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 red onion
- 3 celery stalks
- ½ pound baby carrots
- 1 pound beets
- 1 pound Brussels sprouts
- Salt & Pepper to taste
In a small bowl, make the marinade. Whisk the thyme, Dijon mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cut the Brussels sprouts in quarters and again in half (so you get about 8 pieces from one sprout). In a large Ziploc bag, add the chicken and the Brussels sprouts to the marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to overnight (I like marinating it overnight so the next morning, I have less prep).
Mince the garlic. Dice the onion. Chop the celery.
Peel the beets and cut into small cubes. Place the onions, celery, and garlic in the bottom of the crockpot. Place the chicken with the marinade on top.
Layer the carrots, beets, and Brussels sprouts around and on top of the chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours. Serve.

One of the more healthiest meals that can be prepared. Thank you.
Glad you like it! Thanks!
I accidentally overcooked the chicken!! 🙁 But the veggies turned out amazing so I just snacked on those! Thanks for sharing!
Oh No! Glad the veggies turned out well. Next time – chicken will be better 🙂
Veggies were undercooked and chicken overcooked. I think next time I will do the veggies in the crockpot, cook the marinated chicken in a skillet and add to crockpot at the end. Otherwise – delicious flavors.
Hi Annie! Sounds like a plan. You can try to put veggies on the bottom so they cook better and the chicken on top. It might change the way the veggies come out. But you’re idea sounds good too! Thanks for sharing your tip!
