Hawaiian Pineapple Crockpot Chicken

On Sundays, I rarely want to make plans – I like to see how I feel as the day goes along – and many Sundays I don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen. Here’s a great recipe for those lazy Sundays…or Mondays…or


1 package (approx. 1.5 lb) boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 6 oz can pineapple juice

1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

3/4 cup fresh pineapple, chopped into half inch chunks

Place all ingredients into a crock pot on LOW for 6 hours. I serve this with red pepper brown rice mixed with 2 tbsp mango salsa. This dinner is so easy and delicious you will want to make it all the time. You can also make this as a party appetizer – just chop the chicken into two inch chunks before cooking and serve right in the crock pot. Aloha!



Aloha from Kauai’i….

This week I am on a much needed vacation with my friend Courtney – another hard working non profit manager who needed a vacation in the worst way! I will be blogging some “hawaiian style” recipes this week from beautiful Princeville, Kauai’i. This photo is from a gorgeous private bluff that my brother has a little shack on – isn’t this the most amazing view of the North Shore and Hanalei Bay?


I am working on some great recipes this week…..using all locally grown and fresh caught ingredients…stay tuned!
