Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Recipe
This delicious Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Recipe is also a great freezer meal! I prepared this meal in an afternoon when doing twenty crockpot freezer meals for my family’s dinners.
With end of the school year activities in full swing and summer break coming, I wanted to make a bunch of prep ahead meals that I could make for my family. This is one of the 20 Slow Cooker Freezer Meals in 4 Hours Plan.
So, I got busy finding and creating recipes so I could take an afternoon and have meals ready to go for my family. This chicken crockpot recipe has been one of my favorites so far out of all the slow cooker meals. I served the delicious Hawaiian Chicken over white rice with Roasted Broccoli. This recipe is also gluten free when you use gluten free soy sauce. It would be great if you are hosting a luau themed party.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. I hope your family enjoys this slow cooker Hawaiian Chicken Recipe as much as mine did!
Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Recipe is so good and it’s an easy freeze slow cooker supper that everyone will love. My whole family loved this complete crockpot dinner meal, and they want me to make it again soon! Be sure to make this crockpot freezer meal, you will not be disappointed. This is a crowd pleaser for sure. You can easily double this recipe and you can use any cut of chicken that your family prefers. I have made it with boneless chicken thighs too!

What size can pineapple chunks?
Dumb question -Do you cook the chicken first? If not, it is safe to place raw chicken with the other ingredients? Just new to all this kind of food preparing.
We did not cook it prior. You place it in raw and then it cooks 🙂 All safe!
Do you empty the contents of bag into crockpot to cook – picture shows bag in pot – is it cook in the bag?
Oh you empty! You can use a crockpot liner if you want to help with the aid of the cleanup. Totally your choice though.
What did I do wrong…followed directions, put in crockpot on low for 6 hours and dried up. Not enough liquid. I used the juice from the pineapple chunks too. Anyone else have this issue? What other liquid base cook I add and how much? Thanks! ☺️
What size slow cooker did you use? I would suggest adding 1 cup of chicken broth to the mixture if you had this problem.
I am new to crock pot cooking so please excuse the question if it seems silly. Why freeze the canned pineapple with the other ingredients instead of adding it when you start the cooking process?
You can do that too 🙂
I want to make this but my slow cooker is currently occupied. Does this recipe still work for the stove top? Thanks!
I think so!
Hubby loved it. But I did put in some corn flour and 1 chicken stock cube to thicken sauce. great with the baked broccoli!
