Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken

May 17, 2014Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken is simply amazing. This great chicken recipe can be made in your slow cooker which is super easy. Or, if you need  to have the recipe cooked more quickly, you can also bake it the oven for about an hour. (That’s what I did here). I’ve actually had this recipe both ways and both work fine. The sweet and sour sauce is made from crushed pineapple and juice, soy sauce, ketchup, sugar and vinegar. It’s so delicious and makes this chicken sizzle.

In early 2000, we were invited to a friend’s home for lunch one Sunday after church. Our children were close in age together we really wanted an opportunity to get to know this family better. It turned out to be a time of great food, lots of talk and laughter, games and fun. Pam was a wonderful cook and I collected at least two recipes from her that day. This one for a main dish and a luscious Heath Bar Dessert.

Everything she served that day was so incredibly scrumptious. Pam made this recipe in the slow cooker and served it over steamed white rice. My pictures will actually show this baked in the oven because I didn’t have time to make it in the slow cooker the day I was making this. Hawaiian Chicken can be prepared either way with great results.

If you’re looking for a fantastic Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken recipe to serve over rice, this one is heavenly. The tangy sweet and sour sauce is superb. This chicken main dish is succulent and delicious as well as being gluten free. It’s really not too difficult to prepare either. Everyone who has ever tasted this recipe has just loved it. I think you will too. 😉

The gluten free flour and eggs are used as a breading for the chicken. All the other ingredients are used in making the sauce.

Fry in skillets in a little oil until lightly browned. If using cast iron skillets, you can’t be stingy with the oil or the chicken may stick to the pan.

Cover with sauce. If baking in crockpot, cook on low for 6-8 hours or until done. If baking in oven, cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 45-60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. About 30-40 minutes before chicken is to be done, cook rice.
