Pineapple Chicken: Stovetop or Crockpot

DSC_0064

This Pineapple Chicken I’ve made 2 ways.  The first is a stovetop version and the second is a Crockpot version.  The main difference is for the Crockpot version, I coated the chicken in cornstarch and browned the meat in a skillet prior to adding to the Crockpot.  The family loved both, but they preferred the coated version.  You can easily use the coated version of the stovetop too.

Directions for the stovetop version and the Crockpot version below.

Stovetop Ingredients:

    • ¼ c. Heinz 57
    • ½ c. water
    • 1 8oz. can of crushed pineapple
    • 3 TBSP brown sugar
    • Olive oil
    • 2 tsp. garlic
    • Chicken breasts, cut up
    • Crushed red pepper to taste after cooking

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix the Heinz 57 through brown sugar, set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet, add garlic, then add the chicken and cook until done; then add the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Individuals can add their own crushed red pepper.
