Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

Hawaiian chicken

Another slow cooker time saver! I modified this recipe to use reduced calorie BBQ sauce (Kraft brand), and canned pineapple packed in its own juice (not syrup). I also modified this recipe for those who are trying to keep their calories per meal below 500 calories, and for those who are trying to stay below 600 calories/meal.

My daughter loved this recipe, but my husband who doesn’t like anything “sweet & sour” didn’t really like the meal. So if you don’t like sweet & sour, you probably won’t be a fan of this recipe.

Hope you enjoy! ~Susan
