CNYEats A Taste of Utica Pineapple Chicken

by Joanne on January 2, 2011

This recipe is in the Crockpot.  I call it a “dump and run” recipe.  You “dump” in all the ingredients then set about your business for 7-9 hours (that’s on low) or 3-4 hours, if you cook on high….. umm… I mean a high setting on the Crockpot ‘cause this isn’t THAT type of blog. 


On page 90 of our book

the recipe was posted by Dottie.  It’s a very easy recipe consisting of only 7 ingredients.  The only catch:  You need a Crockpot.   Serves 4


  • 3 chicken breasts, split, boned, skinned
  • 12 – 15 grinds from your fresh pepper grinder
  • paprika (I used about 1 1/2 tsp)
  • 20 oz can pineapple tidbits (or chunks in their own juice) – drained
  • 2 TBS Dijon mustard
  • 2- 3 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 clove crushed garlic

Place the chicken in the Crockpot.  Sprinkle with the pepper and paprika.

In a bowl, mix the pineapple, mustard, soy sauce and pour over the chicken.  Drop in the garlic.

Cover and cook either 3 – 4 hours on HIGH setting or 7 – 9 hours on LOW setting. 



We have just one more chicken recipe to enjoy from our book then we move onto “Meats”.   That should be extra challenging for this vegetarian but more meals for Ted to enjoy.  

Next week:  Chicken Artichoke Pasta.

      Dump and run…I love it! I imagine that the sweet and tangy pineapple does wonders to the chicken. Not only does it help tenderize it…but it adds so much sweet flavor. I want to make this tomorrow, but I’m going to save it for when I have to go back to work/school. Thank you for sharing! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Please have a happy and joyous week!
