This simplistic recipe for crockpot pineapple chicken is perfect for a busy weeknight where you're running the kids around to sport's practices and games. Come home to dinner cooked and ready to eat.
4 bone-in chicken breasts (30 ounces), skin removed
1 dash pepper
paprika to taste
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 large clove garlic, minced
1. Arrange chicken in bottom of crockpot. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika. In a small bowl, combine drained pineapple tidbits, mustard, soy sauce and garlic. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on LOW 7-9 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours.
2. Remove chicken from crockpot and serve immediately. For serving: serve alongside potatoes, or shred the chicken and serve it over rice. Drizzle juices over.
*I prefer to use chicken thighs for this dish- 8 bone-in chicken thighs- pull off the skin before placing in the crockpot. Using thighs will change the calorie count.
*If preparing this recipe as GLUTEN FREE, be sure to use GF soy sauce.
