I found this recipe idea on Pinterest and after seeing the basic concept, I made it my own. I’m a big fan of anything sweet mixed with soy sauce – honey and soy sauce is a go-to marinade for me. So I loved the idea of mixing brown sugar, pineapple juice and soy sauce to create a tasty chicken dish.
I piled all the ingredients into my crockpot, left it alone for 6.5 hours and then had a wonderfully tasty, simple chicken dish.
- Chicken breast pieces (just under 2 pounds)
- 2/3 C brown sugar
- 1 C pineapple juice
- A few pineapple slices
- 1/3 C soy sauce
My verdict? I liked the flavor but next time I will use even more pineapple juice. Depending on your thoughts on sweet meat, you may like the recipe as stands. I like things sweet so I may even add a touch more brown sugar and maybe a bit less soy sauce next time. However, this is tasty and easy and goes great with a side of brown rice and veggies!
What’s your favorite chicken dish?

This recipe is kind of similar to a homemade teriyaki sauce….minus the pineapple of course.
I do also have 3 girls at home that wouldn’t mind that extra pair of SweatPink laces that you have.

My mom loves cooked pineapples and I just never have. That being said I LOVE the pineapple flavor. Sounds delicious.
Love crock pot meals. The other day I made a bbq chicken with the crock pot delish my favorite is a chicken chili. Its wonderful throwing it in and getting back home from work to the sweet smell of already cooked dinner when you walk in the door!
