When it comes to making dinner, I LOVE to use my crock pot With after-school activities ramping up again soon it is just so nice to know that dinner is ready to go and I don’t have to spend precious time in the kitchen during those after school hours. I have a Hamilton Beach Crock Pot and I love it! It is perfect for feeding a family of four and we always have leftovers when I make this crock pot hawaiian chicken so if you have a larger family it would work well too.
We’ve gotten a slight break this winter with the activities but in the next month we will be back to the crazy routine of soccer, Girl Scouts and running club. My son has also informed me that he wants to play t-ball, hockey, take karate AND organ lessons. Yes, ORGAN. I’m all about having well-rounded kids but something has got to give. I limit it to two activities at a time per child so he’s got some decisions to make. At least I don’t have to worry about dinner on those crazy busy nights when I make this Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken recipe.
3 INGREDIENT CROCK POT HAWAIIAN CHICKEN Q&A:
Q. My hawaiian chicken turned out soupy. How do I fix this?
A. If the sauce is too thin for your liking, drain the pineapple before adding it to the crock pot. I also suggest using a slotted spoon when removing the sauce from the crock pot.
Q. Can I use fresh pineapple and not canned?
Q. How many people does this feed?
A. The recipe feeds 4 people. If feeding more people, adjust the recipe as needed.
Q. Can I use frozen chicken breast?
A. Yes. I have found that very thin frozen chicken breasts do not require any additional cooking time. Thicker frozen breasts will require more time. You should check your crock pot user manual for exactly how much time to add when using frozen chicken.
Q. Can I use chicken thighs/quarters/wings etc. ?
A. I have never used anything other than chicken breasts with this recipe. Other parts of the chicken will most likely work but you may have to alter the cooking time. Please check your crock pot user manual for cooking times.
