Crockpot Pineapple Chicken

Do you ever just wish that you didn’t have to do all the work for a home cooked meal? That’s why I LOVE the crockpot. I’m sure those professional chefs would disagree but I’m not a professional chef. Throw a bunch of stuff in the crockpot and let it cook all day. It’s that easy! And it smells the whole house up with the aroma of a home cooked meal.

Friday I threw a few things together and let it cook for about 4 hours. It turned out pretty awesome!


Chop your veggies


Throw it all in the crockpot and give it a little stir.



I served it over brown rice with a side of broiled squash and zucchini.


You could also place this on top of mixed greens or potatoes. I had left over juice in the bottom of the crockpot from the pineapples and veggies so I cooked the rice in it. It added lots of flavor. The rice was a pretty good fit!




I think I need to get some new place settings on the table so my pictures will be more interesting.

Crockpot Pineapple Chicken

1 lb Chicken

1 Tsp. Paprika

2 Tablespoon Soy Sauce

1 can (20 oz.) Pineapple chunks

2 Tsp. Turmeric

2 Cloves of garlic, minced

1 Medium Green Pepper, chopped

Chop your veggies.  Place chicken in bottom of crockpot and place everything else on top. Give it a little stir and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours.


Happy eating!
