Freezer Meal - Crock Pot Honey Rosemary Chicken

This is another freezer meal I made in my freezing extravaganza day.  I thought this would be one of my favorites, but it landed a little flat for me.  It was ok, but it was a little dry (the chicken was dry and not much sauce), and I think the cook time on the recipe was too long for such small pieces of meat and not much sauce.  Plus it ended up kind of burning on the sides, which made the flavors seam off.  If I make it again, I would definitely only put it in the crock pot for about 4-5 hours on low.  I think that would cook the chicken enough (but not over cooked) and wouldn't get any of the burned flavor so you could taste the honey, balsamic, and rosemary better.
