I’m so excited to share this new recipe for Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken. It’s healthy, delicious, and so easy to make!
What’s so great about this recipe for Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken?
- It’s naturally sweetened with a cup of apple juice. That means you only need to add a bit of brown sugar AND it has enough liquid to be cooked in an Instant Pot.
- It can be cooked fresh or frozen (raw) and cooked later.
- It’s simple and delicious!
I love that this recipe is so simple. I’m busy with four little kids (and a fifth on the way!), so having dinner waiting in my crockpot is a big relief at the end of the day. Is anyone else a fan of easy and healthy crockpot recipes?
A lot of sweet Hawaiian crockpot chicken recipes are made with soy sauce, but I think that only takes away from the sweetness. I like to omit it altogether. Give it a try my way – you can always add some soy sauce on top when serving if you think it needs it.
I like to serve this sweet Hawaiian chicken over rice (made in my programmable rice cooker, of course). Super easy and yummy.
