Everyone needs a few go-to meals in their arsenal for those extremely busy weeks.
You know those weeks I am talking about… Those weeks you forget to shave your left leg because you’re too busy worrying about what you have to do after you get out of the shower.
The weeks when you can’t find your sunglasses and search frantically for 10 minutes, only to find they are sitting on top of your head.
The times you feel discouraged when you mark 15 items off your To-Do list in one Saturday, and then add another 20 more.
This crockpot Hawaiian chicken is beyond words ah-maaaazing. I honestly felt like I was being very naughty and eating a gluten-laden plate of Chinese takeout–but I wasn’t!
As always, this slow cooker Hawaiian chicken is completely gluten free, but I bet your gluten-loving friends couldn’t tell the difference!
Be careful when stirring the chicken at the end as some of the breading will start to come off of the chicken the more you stir. Hope you enjoy!
A Tip When Serving this Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken:
Be careful when stirring the chicken at the end. The more you stir the chicken, the more the breading will start to come off.
This recipe tastes awesome served over rice with a sprinkle of green onions!
Don’t have a Crock-Pot yet?
Slow cookers are an extremely affordable kitchen appliance that are well worth the space they take up in your kitchen. They come in various sizes, but I would highly encourage you to get at least a 6-QT Crock-Pot. This will give you plenty of room to make big batches of soup, stew or even queso dip for a party.
Not wanting to clean up a mess?
Sometimes your slow cooker can be a bit of a hassle to clean-up. If you want to save even more time, these Slow Cooker Liners can be thrown away after use.
