Hawaiian Chicken

When it comes to cooking dinners lately, I've been pretty lazy. It seems like I haven't been home at all the past couple of weeks. My time has been spent everywhere but in the kitchen; I've been looking at condos, traveling, playing in the snow...you get the idea. But just because I'm lacking the time to invest in cooking dinner doesn't mean that my dinner has to lack flavor.

This Hawaiian Chicken recipe is one of the easiest and tastiest recipes I've made in a while. With only three ingredients and a crock pot required, you can throw this dish together in less than 5 minutes and have dinner ready after an afternoon of getting everything on your to-do list done. Serving this recipe over rice was absolutely delicious, but you can also eat this in a wrap, over quinoa, or in a salad.

For those days and nights that you feel like you don't have any time to waste fixing a meal, don't reach for a frozen meal or delivery menu--fix this easy peasy, flavorful, AND healthy recipe instead! Now excuse me while I grab my crock pot, throw in the ingredients for this recipe, and play in the snow.

Hawaiian Chicken
(4-5 servings)

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenders
1 jar Newman's Own Pineapple Salsa
1 20-ounce can pineapple chunk, reserve juice
Salt and pepper

Pour half of the salsa and half of the pineapple chunks and juice in the bottom of a crock pot. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to crock pot. Pour the remaining salsa and pineapple chunks and juice over top of chicken. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Chicken will be very tender--shred or chop. Serve over cooked rice.
