Busy Busy Busy week! So much to do …so little time, and it’s Friday?! When did that happen? Oh my, I need to get more organized. So, it’s a crock pot week. I had errands to run today and it was the quickest thing to throw together.
This one is a great meal for anytime! It’s a everybody in the crockpot meal, with an Asian flair.
Crockpot Pineapple Chicken
- 3-4 boneless skinless Chicken Breasts (about 2 lbs)
- 1 can pineapple in juice (tidbits, rings, chucks…it doesn’t matter)
- 1 medium onion
- 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
Cut up onion and place it in the bottom of the crockpot.
Place chicken on top of the onions.
Then dump the pineapple (juice and all) on top of the chicken.
Then add the soy sauce and the chicken broth.
Put the lid on and cook on High for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
There will be plenty of sauce in the crockpot to serve with the chicken!
Serve over rice, and with veggies.
Here is an idea!
Cut up chicken after cooked. Mix with steamed stir fry veggies. Place both over rice, and top with sauce from the crockpot. Makes your own homemade rice bowls that are so yummy, and less calories than the store bought ones!
This meal is naturally Gluten and Dairy Free!
The Meal Deal
I am doing this bits and pieces, because that is how I cook.
The chicken breasts were on sale at Publix last week for $1.79/lb. They are also on sale at Winn Dixie this week BOGO at $4.00/lb, so that makes them $2.00/lb when you buy 2 packs. Chicken breast freeze well, and there is no reason you shouldn’t stock up when they go on sale like this.
The pineapple was in my pantry. I bought it when it was BOGO a couple weeks ago.
The Veggies are the Steamfresh asian mix. I got them free when I purchased the meal deal at Winn-Dixie this week.
Rice is a staple at my house. I buy a huge bag that lasts forever! It costs us pennies to serve rice with a meal.
The Chicken broth has been on sale a lot with the Holidays. I purchased this very inexpensively right before Thanksgiving.
So, While I can’t give you an exact price. You can see how cheap and easy it can be to pull a meal together when you shop the current sale and stockpile your groceries.
