Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken

Ready, set, go, it’s crock pot time. Whether you call it a crock pot or slow cooker, it should be your best friend when you’re looking to make healthy, wholesome recipes during the winter.

This Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken is massive delicious and will remind you of those tropical flavors you enjoy in the islands if you’ve ever been there. This chicken has the sweetness of fresh pineapple mixed with Polynesian/asian flavors including soy sauce and fresh ginger. With a touch of honey added for sweetness and all you need to do is add everything into your crock pot to do the rest of the work.

If you want to really make life easy you can add cooked brown rice directly into your crock pot in the last 30 minutes of cooking to warm it up and absorb all the succulent flavors that this dish creates.

When you pull the pieces of chicken out of the slow cooker the meat is more buttery, juicy and tender then you can imagine. The best part is that the recipe can easily be doubled so you can feed a big group or have plenty of leftovers. Serve it with Perfect Brown Rice, Asian Slaw, Sesame Seaweed Salad or Simple Sautéed Collard Greens for a meal that’s sure to please!

    Is there a reason why the recipe calls for both breasts and thighs? I don't mind using both but wonder if I can just use all of the same type. :)

      You can use all the same type. I added both for the variety of texture and flavor!

    I would like to use boneless breasts.if I could, how would that affect the cooking?

      Boneless chicken will cook faster! So you can check it at about 1.5 hours if you're cooking on high.

    Could you use frozen pineapple? I do not like to use cans and already have a bag of frozen pineapple:)

      I used frozen pineapple and it still turned out delicious....although I imagine there's a bit more sweetness from the canned due to juice. We didn't miss it. Made it in pressure cooker in 40 minutes and used split breasts and drumsticks. Meat was falling off bone--loved the flavor combo.

      Fresh pineapple should work as long as it is juicy!

    In the middle of putting this together I realized I we used the last of the soy sauce we had ... off to the junk drawer I went and there was the graveyard of little packets from take out meals gone by ... in case anyone needs to know, 14 packets of soy sauce = 1/2 cup. :: smile :: Smells so good, can't wait to taste it.

    Would long grain and wild rice mix go well with this?

    In my humble opinion, I think it’s good idea to get back your ex-lover permanently after break-up through love spell. There is nothing wrong with seeking for help from an experienced and truthful spiritual spell doctor who can read through your broken heart to see the future and amend it if necessary.
    Most people think spells fade away after sometime, some think it’s against their lover’s will or against their religious believe, some think they will be ripped off for their hard-earned money.

    I must say that I have seen couple of successful relationship today through love spell.
    My Cousin (James) has been enjoying a peaceful and prosperous marriage since he got his wife back through love spell 4 years ago. On the other hand, my life has changed positively ever since Dr. Wakina via [email protected] cast a spell that helped me to reconcile with my husband.

    So, I will advise anyone looking to get his or her lover back to search thoroughly and contact a genuine spiritual spell doctor who can help. It won’t take days or weeks depending on the nature of your case for a genuine spell doctor to bring back your lover. Another benefit is that your lover will appreciate the effort you put in through love spell.
    That’s my humble opinion about love spell.

    Video says boneless (and it is obvious they are boneless) thighs. The recipes say bone-in?
    Which is the correct way?
