Pineapple Chicken Recipe

This recipe is so EASY and quite shockingly delicious! I mean really, you will love it! Everyone loves this Hawaiian Chicken Recipe!

The chicken is so tender and the pineapple juice makes the best broth. It’s so simple with canned pineapple. We serve this over rice but I have even used noodles in pinch.

Sometimes I use my instant pot to make this Brown Rice Pressure Cooker Recipe.  All the flavors are just so amazing and taste wonderful with whatever you decide to serve it with.

You can even cook brown rice in the microwave.  Did you know you can freeze rice? This is really convenient for busy nights.

It’s quick and easy for sure! I’m always looking for ways to save time and money. Freezing rice is one of my favorite tips.

I’m all for quick and simple and this is one idea that really helps me a lot. I can easily just pull something from the freezer and reheat for a quick and delicious side dish. Yum!

No one feels like cooking dinner after a long day of work or school. Let the slow cooker do all the work! If you are like me, if dinner is not thought about ahead of time the take out line looks very tempting!

Everyone will love this delicious Hawaiian Chicken Recipe!

I also make this Easy Grilled Chicken Kabob Recipe. It’s awesome with pineapple layered with the chicken. If you like this Crockpot Pineapple Chicken Recipe, give it a try! I’ve also been wanting to try this Pineapple Fried Rice. Yum! Who else loves pineapple as much as I do? It is tangy and sweet and  one of my favorite fruits. So good!

We also love Crockpot steak recipeToss it all in the crockpot and you have tender steak packed with flavor for very little cost.

This Chicken and Pineapple Recipe is fabulous!

I could literally lick my plate -ok, maybe I do.  🙂 Another addition that might taste fabulous is some diced onions! I mean, who doesn’t love onions?

I bet a few red onion chopped in would be amazing. Or if you freeze onions like I do, throw some of those in. So quick and easy! Even green peppers would be delicious. Maybe both!!! The green pepper would add a gorgeous pop of color to this dish.
