Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken

At 25 weeks I’m feeling more tired by the end of the day now than I was during my first trimester. So dinner around here lately has been quite a dud. We’ve had a lot of YOYO nights (You’re On Your Own) and I’m starting to feel a little guilty about it. 
 

I’m happy eating cereal for dinner but I think my husband is less than thrilled.  “YOYO” has become his least favorite thing to hear me say.  So I’ve been on the hunt for super simple meals. 

 
And how else do you get a decent meal on the table with very little work?  The crock pot. 
 
 
This Hawaiian Chicken is more than just a decent meal, it’s actually a new favorite of ours. What I love most about it is you can leave the chicken breasts whole and serve them over a bed of rice or you can shred the chicken and make Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches with it. 

 

It’s seriously a cinch to throw in the crock pot, a great meal for lazy days or just busy days.

    I would totally love this, but someone in my house isn’t a fan of pineapple with meat. Meh. I’ll just have to make it and eat it all myself!

    I’m sure you know about Stephanie O’Dea’s blog? http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ So many good ideas! I particularly like using crockpot recipes when I’m hosting company for dinner. It just means I’m not in the kitchen prepping and cooking when they arrive and I can actually visit with them!

    Not a big fan of green peppers, do you think it would be as good with red/yellow bell peppers? I think I may try this tonight!

    Just put this in the crockpot. Hubby isn’t a fan of green peppers so I took them out but added onion chuncks. Can’t wait to try it. Sauce smells super sweet, I’m hoping the tangyness of the soy sauce will pull through once it starts cooking.

    Do you think this would work using a can of crushed pineapple instead of pineapple slices? That’s all I have on hand right now.

      Yes, I think it would work!

    I was so disappointed in this. It sounded great but it was just bland and boring. I even went back to the recipe to see if I’d left something out. I made a double batch of it so I’ve got to work on today’s leftovers to jazz it up somehow.
