I’ve been getting requests for more chicken recipes on my blog, so I thought I would post one of my current favorites… This recipe, made in a slow cooker, makes the chicken so unbelievably juicy, you won’t believe it! (I really wanted to say “moist” – but I hear that a lot of people aren’t a fan of the word…!?)
This is amazing served alongside with white (or brown) rice and a roasted vegetable of some kind. (Such as my “Parmesan Whole Roasted Cauliflower”, recipe here – https://blaisethebaker.com/2015/02/20/parmesan-whole-roasted-cauliflower/)
This can also be made WITHOUT the pineapple – no need to adjust anything – just don’t add it. BUT – the addition of the pineapple, really adds a “sweet” flavor that goes well with the BBQ taste.
AND – yes, I should have taken the chicken out, placed it on a nice plate, bed of rice, and THEN taken the picture… I’m working on it, I’m working on it… Ha! 😉
(I most of the time just simply don’t have the patience for it…)
Slow Cooker BBQ Pineapple Chicken
4-6 chicken breasts
1 bottle BBQ sauce
1 small can of crushed pineapple
The above ingredients are what I use – everything “normal” size. If you want to use a different flavored BBQ sauce – go ahead. If you want to use a little more / less of the crushed pineapple – feel free! Experiment and have fun!
Start by spraying the inside of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine the bottle of BBQ sauce and can of crushed pineapple together in a small bowl and stir to combine. Place chicken in slow cooker and pour over BBQ and crushed pineapple mixture. No need to add any other liquid!
Set your slow cooker on…
HIGH for 3 hours and check OR LOW for 5 hours and check.
