Slow-Cooker Tropical Chicken is a no-fuss, delicious recipe which brings the Island flavors straight to your dinner table - perfect week night meal

I am a huge fan of my Slow-Cookers, but do not use them nearly as often as I could. This Slow-Cooker Tropical Chicken is such a delicious meal, and perfect for Summer or during Winter.

Summer time, all that’s needed is rice, mashed potatoes or pasta. On chillier days, I usually add a side or two of vegetables as well.

This dish needs the minimum attention ! A little browning of the Chicken, heat through the Sauce, which will also thicken a little, and then it is plain sailing from there on. Dump, stir, set the Slow-Cooker and go shopping —or whatever you need to do.

For those of you who prefer a saucier dish, double the Sauce ingredients. Do make sure it is well heated through before adding to the Chicken, otherwise the cooking time might take a little longer.

This Tropical Chicken is just that, it tastes like you are on a tropical island,with a strong Coconut flavor, and bites of Pineapple in between.

You can always add more (or fresh) Pineapple, depending on how much you like Pineapple in a meal.

When I only have cans, I add one can, and same goes for fresh Pineapple, I cube and use the whole Pineapple, no measuring needed.

Prepping should take you no longer than 15 minutes and after that the Slow-Cooker does all the work.

Which makes this the perfect meal when you need to go out for a while and will only be back around dinner time.
