An easy meal was also in order just so we could rest up. Having house guests for a week, and being on the go every day, has a way of wearing a person out (even before you factor in the heat). Too bad you can’t request spring weather for your summer vacation.

The heat can take it’s toll pretty quick especially when taking in a day game at the ball park. Sitting in the sun to see our beloved Cardinals play.

I did find out you can take bottled water to a ball game, but not if it’s been opened. Well, now I know, after they confiscated it at the gate, only a little embarrassing.

That’s ok I forgot I had pepper spray in my purse as well, but they didn’t notice that one. “Better safe than sorry” is what I say.. never had to use it, but you never know. It’s not that I’m a paranoid person, but I do watch the news and stuff happens occasionally around our downtown area. But we’d rather focus on the positive and not worry about all the crazy.

With minimal effort and maximum taste, this recipe is perfect for busy days when you want a delicious meal waiting for you.

Unlocking the Tropical Flavors:

When it comes to creating a meal that truly captures the essence of Hawaii, pineapple is an ingredient that can’t be overlooked. Its juicy sweetness adds a delightful touch to any dish, and in this recipe, it takes center stage. Combined with succulent chicken, aromatic spices, and a savory sauce, this Crock-Pot creation will bring a taste of the islands right into your home.

Chicken and white rice covered in a light brown sauce. There is three pineapple rings on the chicken. Everything is arranged on a white plate with a blue pattern, and garnished with green onion.

Talk about yum! This Sweet Hawaiian Crock Pot Pineapple Chicken hits all the taste buds just right. Sweet, tangy, juicy! Perfect for a hot summer day.


  • 4 boneless Chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used light sodium)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 20 oz can of pineapple rings (I used Dole slices with 100% juice, save juice)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cilantro (optional)
  • couple dashes of pepper
  • green onions for garnish


  1. In a bowl pour in the pineapple juice and soy sauce plus your 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and mix well add brown sugar and ketchup and continue mixing.
  2. Place chicken breast in the crock pot pour mixture over the top, toss in minced garlic, pepper, cilantro and top with pineapple slices. Spoon some of the mixture over the top of the pineapples, cover and set crock pot.
  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or low for 7-8 hours. When the chicken has an internal temperature of 165º it's done.


We had this with white rice with a little of the sauce poured over the top and a nice fresh salad from the garden on the side.
