Helpful hints

  • Sauce may not thicken in the Crock-pot if the temperature is not high enough. If not thickened after 2-3 minutes pour sauce into a sauce pan and heat over medium heat, stirring until thickened. Add back to crock-pot with chicken and pineapple.
  • Chicken thighs vary in size and weight. We made this recipe using a 1-1/2 pound package of six boneless, skinless chicken thighs, about 4 ounces each uncooked. For a lower protein diet cut the chicken thighs in half ( 2 ounces) or use smaller thighs if available.
  • There will be approximately 1 cup of pineapple tidbits left. Eat as a snack or dessert the next day or try another pineapple recipe.

Pineapple Glazed Crock-pot® Chicken Thighs

i'm on dialysis can i use honey instead of the brown sugar and how much honey should I use?? Dietitian comment: Yes the honey substitution does not change nutrient content by much. I suggest 2 tablespoons honey instead of the 2 tablespoons brown sugar.

How would I make this with out a slow cooker. My husband and I don't have one.Dietitian comment: You can cook it in the oven at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Remove from oven and place chicken on a plate. Add cornstarch and liquid to pan drippings and stir over stove top burner until thickened. Pour over chicken thighs.

This was very easy to prepare. We liked this recipe, however it was on the sweeter side. Next time I might add a little more Tabasco sauce to try and balance it more. Love the chicken thighs but may try the breasts or boneless pork chops next time.

Dietitian comment: Yes yiu can use 1-1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, which is 4-6 breasts depending on the size. After cooking the portion is ~2-1/2 ounces cooked chicken.
