video instructions available below 👇 


– 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
– 1 cup pineapple juice
– 1/2 cup soy sauce
– 1/2 cup honey
– 1/4 cup ketchup
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
– 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for some heat)
– 1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional, for thickening)
– Sliced pineapple and green onions for garnish
– Cooked rice or quinoa for serving


1. Begin by placing the chicken breasts in the crockpot, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, ketchup, minced garlic, minced ginger, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using). Whisk the ingredients until well combined.
3. Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken breasts, ensuring they are fully coated.
4. Set the crockpot to cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. The chicken should be tender and easily shred with a fork when done.
5. If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix a tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water to create a slurry. Stir the slurry into the crockpot during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
6. Once the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened (if desired), remove the chicken from the crockpot and shred it using two forks.
7. Return the shredded chicken to the crockpot and mix it with the sauce until evenly coated.
8. Serve the Sweet Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken over cooked rice or quinoa. Garnish with sliced pineapple and green onions for an extra burst of flavor and freshness.
