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!
