31 Days of Pinterest: Day 27 Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken
This is actually something we make at least once a month, but we usually put it in the oven at 350 degrees & cook it for an hour. I thought trying it with the crock pot might be good too, especially for the nights that I work late and can't get dinner started earlier.
Here's the original inspiration:
Six Sister's Stuff)
Here's what you need to make this:
Yep, three things. Frozen (or fresh) chicken breasts; a can of pineapple chunks or rings; and a bottle of Barbeque sauce. Plus a crockpot. Easy pacheesy.
From many years of experience with this, spray your pan or crockpot with a non-stick spray first before putting anything in. You'll thank me when it's time for clean-up.
Then, put the first layer of frozen chicken breasts in.
Then add some barbeque sauce and some pineapple. Then add another layer of chicken breasts, BBQ sauce, and pineapple.
To get the last bit of BBQ sauce out of the bottle, I use the pineapple juice from the can.
Now that everything is in there, put the lid on, turn it to high, and let it go for at least 2-3 hours. You can also put it on low for 4-6 hours. Our crockpot was a wedding gift 18 years ago, so it took a little longer, and even though we had it set on high, the chicken wasn't done until 3.5 hours later. But it still was pretty good.
I don't have an after picture...but it looks fairly close to the top one. The level of the liquid will rise as everything cooks, so don't be alarmed that it's not all pretty anymore.
