Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Recipe

Hey there everyone! How was your Monday?? Mine has been long and productive! I’m thankful to have tonight off from teaching so I could be home to get some things on my to-do list knocked out!

Yesterday was a beautiful and sunny day here in Springfield, but I still decided to break out my Crock Pot! I love my free time on the weekends too much to worry about cooking a big evening meal on Sundays. So ‘set it and forget it’ cooking is a must!

On Sunday morning I hopped on Pinterest to find a recipe for some Crock Pot chicken that used ingredients I had on hand. I pieced a few things together and came up with a great combo that Nick loved!

crockpotchicken2This recipe is just about as simple as can be!

Ingredients:

IMG_2344

  • 4-6 frozen chicken breasts
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce
  • 1 large can of sliced pineapple in juice
  • 2 tbsp minced onions
  • 2 tsps garlic salt

IMG_2345Layer your frozen chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Then pour about half the bottle of BBQ sauce evenly over the chicken.

IMG_2346Sprinkle the minced onions and garlic salt on top of the BBQ sauce, and then layer the pineapple slices on top.

IMG_2347Pour any remaining pineapple juice over the top of the pineapple. Lastly, pour the remaining BBQ sauce over the top of the pineapple layer and cover it.

About 4 hours in!

I gave it a good stir around the 4 hour mark, and then let it continue cooking for 2 more hours.

I served the chicken in whole breast pieces with a pineapple slice or two on top with some extra sauce as well.

Then I can serve the meat on some sweet Hawaiian rolls for a tasty meal that could feed a crowd!IMG_2362Whip up this easy and tasty meal the next time you’re in a bind for something different and quick!

I hope you enjoy slow-cooker cooking as much as I do. It’s a big staple around my house, especially during this time of year!

Have a great evening everyone. Comment and let me know how your Crock Pot recipes are turning out! Nighty night!
