Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken

May 1, 2013

So, found a pin on Pinterest. (Of course.) Had to try. Simple enough. Four ingredients. I only changed one from regular brown sugar to Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for my dietary needs. When subbing regular brown sugar for the Splenda blend, you use half as much, so I used 1/4 cup of Splenda. Lets see the recipe:

Well, that looks easy.

Look, already in! Now, lets look at some stats. Since it is 2 pounds of chicken (read 32 ounces.) I am going to pretend it is a 4 ounce serving of chicken, which means there are 8 servings here. A normal person would most likely eat 6-8 ounces. But we should not shove more than 4 ounces of dense protein into our pouches. And remember-the majority of the sugars is from the pineapple juice. Serve with Salad, or quinoa, or rice if you can handle it. Or add in some bell peppers for fun :)

UPDATE! Oooooo so good. Very moist. About 30 minutes before I served, I cut up the chicken into chunks and let sit back in the sauce on the keep warm setting. My daughter is LOVING this and keeps muttering “so moist and sweet” over and over. My son is actually eating it, which is a good sign. He only has one piece left on his plate and I gave it to him 5 minutes ago! That is HUGE!

    Thought it looked nothing like the picture and was very dry.

    If your chicken was dry, your slow cooker is probably like mine – fast. Mine cooked within 3 hours on low. But i used diced chicken. And mine didn’t look like the pic at all either. But it was sooooo yum. I’m putting in pineapples tonight to see how that goes!

      My issue in the past was power-we were living in Japan at the time and using American appliances on a transformer. So, the power fluctuates a little and can cause issues. Back stateside it is doing just fine! Though for this recipe I had no issues!
