Summer has hit with a vengeance! It is hot! And, if you are like me, you don’t want to spend all your time in the kitchen. I have cooked with a crockpot for years and being able to put raw food items in a device and have it come out a few hours later in the form of a meal is just magical to me! I use it for many dishes.
Here is my rendition of crockpot chicken. I hope you like it as much as we do.
Easy Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken
- 2 lbs chicken (wings, thighs, tenders)
- 1 c real pineapple juice
- 1 can pineapple chunks (The amount depends on how well your family likes pineapple. I use a large can.)
- 1/2 c dark brown sugar
- 1/3 c soy sauce (I use low sodium because we watch our salt intake.)
- Prepare crockpot. I use disposable liners. They are a godsend for cleanup!
- Wash and cut chicken into small pieces. Tenders or nuggets work well for this recipe, as well as legs, wings, and thighs. Place in crockpot.
- Mix pineapple, juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce and pour over chicken.
- Cook for 6-8 hours or until done. Liquids should have thickened to make a nice sauce for the chicken.
- Serve with rice and a green salad for an easy meal.
