Tasty Tuesday Pineapple Chicken

I made a rave review dish for Sunday dinner last week- Pineapple Chicken. I wanted something that I could put in my electric skillet so that I could come home to a mostly made dinner. I was faced with plain old boneless skinless chicken breasts. I do a lot of cooking by just opening cupboards and seeing what looks like I can put it together in a new dish. Here's how I made my Pineapple Chicken. The kids liked it so much, they told me to make it a recipe!

Pineapple Chicken
3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, thawed
2 cans of crushed pineapple
1/2 cup brown sugar
You already know it was easy because it only has three ingredients!

Brown the chicken breasts lightly in an electric skillet. I own Saladmaster cookware; so, I don't use oil. If your skillet needs a little oil or cooking spray, you'll need to adapt the recipe a bit. You're not trying to fully cook the chicken, just give it a bit of color.
Meanwhile, mix your crushed pineapple with brown sugar in a bowl. After your chicken is browned, spoon the pineapple mixture over the chicken. Cover and turn the electric skillet down. On my skillet, I set it at 200.

Now, go to church or go about your activities for 2-3 hours. When you get home, you'll have delicious moist chicken. I served this with brown rice.
There are 6 of us. Three adults, two kids who are over 5 foot tall and our little eight year old. This fed us all amply. You can adjust amounts to the size of your family. I used the tall cans of pineapple. You could get by with one if you needed to. I just like things moist and brothy.



  1. It sounds yummy, Laura. We'll have to modify it a bit as we don't buy our chicken so we don't have boneless breasts to just throw in the pan. But it will still be rather simple.

  2. Yum! Found you on Farm Girl Friday! I would love to have you share this on The Creative HomeAcre Hop today!
