shredded pineapple chicken

This recipe was shared with me and originally called for drumettes. Chicken drummies are hard for me to find and usually gross me out when I do find them in the store so, I opted for organic chicken thighs.

Best served over a portion of brown rice (note: if you’re using the microwave rice cooker, the brown rice will take a while, 20-30 minutes, if you’re not using instant rice).

Serves 2-3 people

What you’ll need:

  • 5-6 chicken thighs
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup of crushed pineapple and the juice
  • salt
  • red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup of honey
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

In your 2.5 quart crock pot, place your chicken thighs at the bottom. In a small bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients, making sure to blend really well to incorporate the honey. Pour over the chicken thighs and cook on low for 6 hours. The chicken should easily fall apart to be shredded and served over brown rice.

**I used diced pineapple, but honestly it didn’t do anything for this recipe but make weird tasting pineapple. I think if you use crushed pineapple along with some extra pineapple juice, it’ll be much better!**
