Crockpot Pineapple Chicken🍍
Absolutely Delicious *tender* Pineapple Chicken prepared in my most favorite kitchen appliance: the crockpot. The Slow Cooker does the work and we don’t need to babysit!
Sweet & Tangy homemade pineapple sauce, made of fresh pineapple, coconut aminos, fresh garlic, and fresh ginger. VERY simple, but so good you’ll be making this sauce often!
If you’re looking for something SUPER satisfying to easily feed your crew this week – We’ve got you covered!
Serve over cauliflower rice, quinoa, or brown rice and alongside steamed broccoli, but don’t forget a good sprinkle of chives or scallions!
Crazy GOOD! Works extremely well for meal prep too! Store leftovers in sealed meal prep containers for up to 3-4 days in the fridge.
We’ve been enjoying tropical fruits this past month at our house because I’ve noticed they’re plentiful at our local grocers right now. On sale too!
Although fresh pineapple is available year-round throughout most of the US, this island fruit hits its peak from March through July.
Besides being completely DELICIOUS, fresh Pineapple is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and other helpful compounds, such as enzymes that can help support digestion, fight inflammation and disease.
