Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken from Table for Seven

We recently purchased a chest freezer for our basement. The freezer with our refrigerator is pretty darn small and was overflowing on a regular basis. To get something out of the freezer was at times, a major tactical operation.

Imagine, trying to get ice cream and having to remove a billion other things to get to it. A nightmare!

Yes, I could just stop buying ice cream (what!), but, no..I simply convinced Mr Plain that we needed a stand alone freezer to contain our overflowing freezer items.

I was so excited to get it.

It was going to be so fabulous! And it is. However, it’s a good size and it looks kinda empty after I evenly distributed everything.

My next great idea was to start pre-planning meals and freezing them.

Have you seen this kinds of thing on Pinterest? A woman prepared enough meals for her family for about 6 months. It only took her a day or two!

Wonderful! Sounds like a plan.

I checked out the book Don’t Panic, Dinner is in the Freezer, from the library and prepared to pull up my sleeves and get to work.

Did I do it? No.

It occurred to me, what if the power goes out? There goes a ton of food to waste.

Also,I am lazy. There..I said it. Not going to beat around the bush about it. After reading the amount of food to do it, I gave up.

Not proud of it guys. 🙁

However, my freezer is full of homemade bread, jam, banana bread and salsa.

So, I can feel good about our purchase!

It’s also much easier to get out ice cream. 👍

However, in the book,this crock pot chicken recipe popped out at me:

This chicken is sweet, tangy and you just dump in the crock pot and cook it..Serve it over rice and you are ready to go!

Hi Karen- I'm sure it can be. However, I've only made in the crock pot, so, can't say for sure how long or what temp to cook it at. If you do try it, please let me know how it works out!

Always looking for new & delicious ways to fix chicken using my crockpot and this fits the bill. Just a thought: How do you think using boneless pork loin chops would work for this recipe? The only difference I can think of is maybe increasing the time by and an hour or so .... what do you think?

Slice the chicken breasts, use crushed tinned pineapple and put it in the thermomix and is done in 20 mins.

I’ve made something similar to this and it is quite yummy. The only real difference is that I add some green pepper chunks and some chunks of sweet onion too .
