Supper Tonight!

Crockpot Pineapple Chicken
I just wanted to share with y'all a recipe I am doing tonight for supper.  I can tell you it smells super yummy!!! I can't wait to get into it.  The points plus value for this is 5 PP.  If this tastes as good as it smells it will be worth it all.  (steps out to get the rice going)

Here is the recipe for those of you who would like to try it.

crockpot pineapple chicken

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 to 9 hours (in the crockpot)
This simplistic recipe for crockpot pineapple chicken is perfect for a busy weeknight where you're running the kids around to sport's practices and games. Come home to dinner cooked and ready to eat.


6 whole chicken breast halves, without skin
1 dash pepper
paprika to taste
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 large clove garlic, minced


1. Arrange chicken in bottom of crockpot. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika. In a small bowl, combine drained pineapple tidbits, mustard, soy sauce and garlic. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on LOW 7-9 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours.
2. Remove chicken from crockpot and serve immediately. For serving: serve alongside potatoes, or shred the chicken and serve it over rice. Drizzle juices over.


*I prefer to use chicken thighs for this dish- 8 bone-in chicken thighs- pull off the skin before placing in the crockpot.
*If preparing this recipe as GLUTEN FREE, be sure to use GF soy sauce.
