My slow cooker and I are besties. It’s a great solution for mealtime throughout the year and allows me to prepare dinner ahead of time so that during the close of my day I’m not feeling rushed to prepare a meal. I use my slow cooker several times throughout the week and one of my favorite, tried and true, no-one-complains-about-dinner recipes is my Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken which features Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce, Dole® Pineapple, and rich brown sugar that cooks low and slow all day before being served over a bed of Minute® Brown Rice.
To start, I take some skinless chicken breasts and add them to my slow cooker. One of the best parts about this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen chicken!
Then I cover the chicken with about half a cup of Kikkoman and half a cup of water.
And then some brown sugar.
And then I add a whole can of Dole Pineapple.
I cover and cook it for six hours on low.
About 20 minutes before it’s ready, I make some Minute Rice.
While the rice is cooking through, I remove the chicken from the slow cooker and chop it up.
Once the rice is ready, dinner is easy to serve. I love to make this Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken with broccoli and create a rice bowl with the veggies, chicken, and soy sauce over top.
Using quality ingredients found at my local Walmart is what makes this recipe special. Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce allows me to cut down on sodium levels without sacrificing big flavor in my meals. Dole® Pineapple Chunks in 100% Pineapple Juice give the chicken an added sweet and tangy flavor that’s naturally low in sodium. And the Minute® Brown Rice is a cinch to make and offers a rich nutty flavor to compliment the tangy flavor of the pineapple and savory flavor of the soy sauce.
