Directions Step-By-Step

Combine ingredients in a slow cooker/crock pot. Cook (on low, I'd think) for 6-8 hours. (The recipe source didn't give the temp, so I am guessing.)

I have this cooking right now in my slow cooker/crock pot. I've had it on cooking since 8:30 a.m. and it is now 1 p.m....my house smells heavenly but the Sweet Hawiian chicken certainly doesn't look anything like the picture....I find most meat recipes don't resemble the picture in the recipe though. This is really runny right now, will have to add some kind of thickener to it for sure.

Don't waste your time on this!!!! It is nothing like the picture. It is a soupy yucky mess. Whoever posted this recipe it should be deleted...

If there was a no star rating - I would pick the no star. It does not even deserve a one star!!

This had to be a joke. A very, very bad joke. The chicken looks nothing like what it's supposed to (I mean not even close) and I'm afraid to try it. Mine still has a short while to cook before tasting. Whereas I'm sure it'll still be edible I am extremely unhappy. Don't waste your time or ingredients.

I make a stove top recipe that is similar to this but with Orange juice instead of pineapple ( eith
er would work) . What I do is flour the chicken and lightly sauté it before anything else. I take the chicken out then start the sauce , once that is boiled I put the chicken back in to continue cooking and leave it in until it thickens . Mine comes out a lot like the pic looks.....

I agree with Lisa, if there was a no star, I'd pick it. This is undoubtedly the worst thing I have ever made. I wish I had paid more attention to the amount of liquid in this "recipe" --if you can call it that. It turned out to be one big soupy gray mess with chunks of chicken floating in it....just nasty!!! I had to throw it down the garbage disposal. Why anyone would post this on Pinterest is beyond me. It's been several months since I made this disaster and this "recipe" is still showing up on Pinterest. I can't say enough bad things about it. Please don't waste your time and money.

I have not made this yet but am planning to. I am going to dust the chicken chunks first and brown them in a skillet. The flour should help thicken the mixture plus the chicken should have that nice golden brown that is in the picture.

This recipe is actually pretty tasty but this version has too much liquid for the crock pot. Also it will NEVER look like the pic unless you cook it some other way. Crock pots DO NOT brown meat or cause sugars to caramelize.

First I cooked it for 8 hours on low. I used chicken breasts that I did not cut up. I cooked my chicken breasts for 3.5 hours and then drained them. I then mixed 1 20oz can of crushed pineapple (drained) with 2 packets of soy sauce (the kind you get with takeout Chinese) and 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar. I poured this over the chicken. I let it cook for another 4-4.5 hours. The chicken breasts fall apart on their own or you can shred them and mix into the sauce. We served it over white rice with asparagus. If it's too soupy just add a TBSP of cornstarch at a time until desired consistency. We like it a little soupy cause the rice soaks it up.

FYI: I left out the onions and bell pepper cause my child won't eat them, however if using put them on top of the chicken then pour the pineapple mixture over everything.

In this picture the chicken is breaded or at least dusted with flour then pan fried in oil before it was added to the crock pot. I would rather a picture not be included at all than to post one that does not accurately represent the recipe.

This recipe isn't even worth 1 star, it was TERRIBLE! No, the picture doesn't match, but the chicken was dry and not only felt like, but tasted like it had sat in the fridge for a week. The pineapple, onions and peppers were mushy and disgusting. I ended up throwing it out as I was not going to feed my family this.. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!!!

I wish I had read the reviews before making this recipe. Actually only saw the reviews after I looked up recipe again to see if I missed a step. I had to apologize to my husband and kids over and over again for how disgusting this dish turned out..don't waste your time making this..and if you do, no...finished product looks nothing like the picture.
