Crock-Pot Hawaiian Chicken Recipe
This easy recipe brings great flavors of pineapple, soy sauce, garlic and ginger to any cut of chicken. Dark meat chicken like drumsticks or thighs work great, but you can also use white meat chicken breasts too!

Instructions
  1. In a bowl mix together the crushed pineapple (with the juice), soy sauce, ground ginger and garlic.
  2. Place chicken drumsticks in the bottom of a 6-quart or larger slow cooker.
  3. Pour pineapple mixture over top and give everything a quick toss.
  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. To make a nice glazed sauce to pour over the chicken remove the chicken from the slow cooker and pour out the sauce from the crock into a small saucepan.
  6. Heat juices on the stove on medium high until they come to a boil.
  7. In the meantime mix 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water until there are no lumps.
  8. Pour cornstarch slurry into into boiling slow cooker juices and whisk while cooking until thickened about 2-3 minutes.
  9. Serve chicken and sauce over rice and steamed veggies if desired.
Recipe Notes

I do not recommend cooking this dish in the crock-pot on high. Chicken tends to dry out when overcooked in the slow cooker.

The sauce/glaze is totally optional the chicken is good without it. But even BETTER with it!
