Crockpot Wednesdays – Slow Cooker Polynesian Chicken

I am typically not a fan of fruit in my savory foods.  It just seems weird to me.  In the spirit of being a grown up and trying new things I decided to try this recipe even though it has pineapple in it.  I am so glad that I did!  This Polynesian Chicken is my favorite slow cooker recipe this far.  It is the perfect blend of savory and sweet.

Slow Cooker Polynesian Chicken


8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts – cut into 1” cubes
2 green bell peppers
40 oz. pineapple chunks in natural juice
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 cloves garlic – minced
4 tsp. ground ginger
2/3 cup honey
4 tablespoons cornstarch
4 cups uncooked rice

You will need to use a 5 or 6 quart crockpot for this recipe.

Pour juice from pineapple into a small mixing bowl with soy sauce, garlic, ginger and honey.  Whisk well to mix.  Add cornstarch and stir until mixed well.

Add chicken and pineapple to your slow cooker.  Pour pineapple mixture over top, cover and cook for 5 – 6 hours on low.

During the last 15 minutes of cooking add the bell peppers.  Meanwhile cook rice according to package directions.

Serve chicken over rice and enjoy!

    Well this certainly looks tempting. I’m going to make it for tomorrow night’s dinner as a trial run for bringing it to a family gathering next Saturday. It sure looks good. I just wish there were some reviews from people who made it. I’ll let you know how it went for me.
