If you like chicken, pineapple and need an easy recipe, stop. Just stop.
The hardest part of this recipe, if I had to pick one, is thickening the sauce at the end. That’s if you’re twisting my arm. I got so happy with my last dump and dash recipe I had to try another one.
Chicken breast in slow cookers gets a bad rap. It’s hard to get juicy chicken breast cooking it on low for hours. It drains whatever little juice and fat there is. With this recipe the chicken is moist and has the sweet ‘n spicy sauce to give it much needed fat.
Boneless, skinless chicken breast often goes on sale for as low as $1.99/lb. Add in a can of pineapple and this could be one budget friendly family meal!
This is *almost* all you need, except for a little water and brown sugar that I added. I’m not sure if I even needed the brown sugar but I think it helped to carmelize the sauce a bit. And anything carmelized is a good thing, right?
See, dump and dash! This is where I felt it needed more liquid because I knew there wouldn’t be enough from the chicken alone.
Have you ever made chicken with pineapple? This would work great with chicken thighs too! Use whatever is on sale.
