When it comes to making dinner, I LOVE to use my crock pot With after-school activities ramping up again soon it is just so nice to know that dinner is ready to go and I don’t have to spend precious time in the kitchen during those after school hours. I have a Hamilton Beach Crock Pot and I love it! It is perfect for feeding a family of four and we always have leftovers when I make this crock pot hawaiian chicken so if you have a larger family it would work well too.
We’ve gotten a slight break this winter with the activities but in the next month we will be back to the crazy routine of soccer, Girl Scouts and running club. My son has also informed me that he wants to play t-ball, hockey, take karate AND organ lessons. Yes, ORGAN. I’m all about having well-rounded kids but something has got to give. I limit it to two activities at a time per child so he’s got some decisions to make. At least I don’t have to worry about dinner on those crazy busy nights when I make this Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken recipe.
ingredients, it doesn’t get much easier than this Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken recipe. The Archer Farms Hawaiin-Style Barbecue Sauce from Target already contains many of the spices that make this tasty such as mango and red pepper, so no added seasoning is necessary. If you feel like it, you can add onion and green pepper chunks.
chipotle chile pepperIf it’s not zippy enough for your liking, try adding a little Chipotle Chile Pepper (pictured here, also used in our Copycat Beecher’s Macaroni & Cheese recipe).
Before I get to the oh-so-easy recipe, I want to let you know about some items you’ll want to pick up to make this process run smoothly. In addition to the crock pot, I recommend the following:
Slow Cooker Liners – these are a life saver and make clean up a breeze!
Slotted Spoon – there are many types of slotted spoons to choose from. I just recommend you get one that has slots small enough so the pineapple chunks do not fall through. You’ll want to use this spoon to drizzle the pineapple sauce over the chicken.
