This Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken is perfect for people who want a low-hassle meal and like their meat on the sweet side. It features a sticky-sweet sauce, with the natural mild acidity of the pineapple and mandarin oranges giving it just the right amount of tartness to put the sweet and savory flavors in balance. I have to say, the Hawaiians do know how to blend the Asian and American cooking traditions nicely. I was more than happy to break out my Crock-Pot again to give this a try. And with no pre-cooking even required, this recipe is about as easy as it gets.
For easier cleanup, spray down your slow cooker with some cooking spray or use a liner. You can tweak the sauce in this recipe a bit according to taste. The simplest way to serve this chicken is as shown, on a bed of rice of your choice. I happen to think that jasmine rice goes beautifully with this! That is likely more than enough for a full meal for most people, but if you want some sides, I would recommend some simply cooked carrots and a green vegetable of your choice for a bit of contrast.
