Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken


Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken
2 lb. (.9kg) chicken tenderloin chunks
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce

  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Start by preparing the chicken tenderloin chunks. If they are not already in chunks, you can cut them into bite-sized pieces. Season them lightly with salt and pepper if desired.
  2. Mix the Sweet Hawaiian Sauce:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the pineapple juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Stir well until the brown sugar is completely dissolved. This mixture will form your sweet Hawaiian sauce.
  3. Layer the Ingredients in the Crockpot:
    • Place the chicken tenderloin chunks in the bottom of your Crockpot or slow cooker.
  4. Pour the Sweet Hawaiian Sauce:
    • Pour the sweet Hawaiian sauce mixture evenly over the chicken, ensuring that all pieces are coated.
  5. Cook on Low:
    • Set your Crockpot to the low heat setting and cover it with the lid.
  6. Slow Cook:
    • Let the chicken cook in the Crockpot for 6 to 8 hours. The low heat will allow the chicken to become tender and absorb the flavors of the sweet Hawaiian sauce.
  7. Check and Stir (Optional):
    • About halfway through the cooking time, you can check on the chicken. If you’d like, you can give it a gentle stir to ensure that all pieces are evenly coated with the sauce.
  8. Serve:
    • Once the chicken is fully cooked and tender, it’s ready to be served. You can garnish it with some sliced green onions or sesame seeds for extra flavor and presentation.
  9. Side Suggestions:
    • Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken pairs wonderfully with steamed rice or cooked quinoa. You can also serve it with a side of steamed vegetables or a simple salad to complete the meal.
  10. Enjoy:
    • Serve this Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken to your family and friends, and enjoy the delightful combination of sweet and savory flavors. It’s a hassle-free recipe that’s perfect for busy days.
  11. Leftovers:
    • Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days. Reheat gently in the microwave or on the stovetop when you’re ready to enjoy them again.
