I have a new crush. He’s hot, he works all day long, and he makes my life so much easier. His name? Crock Pot.

My love for my crock pot runs deep and true. I love being able to just drop some stuff into the CP and not worry a pretty hair on my head about what we’re going to eat for dinner and if I’ll be able to balance a kid on my hip while I sautée. That is why I am loving all the crockin’ recipes on Pinterest; like this one! Its called Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken!

Here’s what you need:

~2-4 chicken breasts

~1 can pineapple (rings, chunks, crushed; it doesn’t matter!)

~2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce

~1 medium onion

~1/2 cup chicken broth

 

First, chop the onion. This is always the part I hate because my eyes get crazy watery and its just awful. But, I found a way around it:

After you’ve chopped the onion, drop it into the crock pot.

Plop the chicken on top and then pour the remaining ingredients on top.

Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours (or on high for 4-6 hours). Then, serve over rice!

On a scale of 1-10, I’d give this recipe a 5. It was good, it was just…not that flavorful. I think part of the reason for that was because I used low sodium chicken broth. It really needed some salt. Also, the chicken was a tad dry. If I were to make it again, I’d use the entire can of chicken broth (rather than just 1/2 cup) and I might toss in a little BBQ sauce as well.

Have you tried something similar to this? What did you use?
