Honey Pineapple Chicken

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 3 hours

Makes

I adapted a dinnertime favorite for my slow cooker because it’s so much easier to do the preparation in advance, then let the chicken cook on its own while I do other things. Your family will love the combination of sweet and savory flavors. —Carol Gillespie, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil in batches on both sides; transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over chicken.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until meat is tender. Strain cooking liquid, reserving pineapple. Serve pineapple with the chicken.

Can you freeze Honey Pineapple Chicken?

Cool chicken mixture. Freeze in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through slowly in a covered skillet until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.
