Whip up these tasty Crock-Pot Hawaiian Chicken drumsticks for a quick and easy family friendly meal that the entire family will enjoy!
Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Recipe
This recipe for Crock-Pot Hawaiian Chicken is a super easy and kid friendly way to prepare the ever so frugal favorite – chicken drumsticks (aka chicken legs).
You can toss this together in no time and have dinner on the table without heating up the house baking chicken.
I like to serve this with some quick stir-fried veggies and some steamed rice (white or brown, your choice). The extra sauce is yummy drizzled over both!
Don’t let the picture fool you (I’m not a professional food photographer) this is a delicious dish!
To make this recipe you just throw some canned crushed pineapple, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in the slow cooker with your chicken drumsticks (you can use other cuts of chicken too – I think thighs would be super tasty!).
Let that all cook for 4 hours until the chicken is cooked through. Then pour off the liquid and thicken it up with some corn starch on the stove top.
We served this with some steamed rice and a bag of steamable frozen veggies. The sauce from the chicken drizzled all over everything is amazing!
