Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken Freezer Meal Recipe

Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken Freezer Meal

This easy Hawaiian chicken is a sweet-sour combination, delicious with hot cooked rice and stir-fried vegetables. This is one recipe that even my pickiest eaters like. Plus, it is one of THE QUICKEST and EASIEST recipes to make!

Because it is so easy to make I do 3-4 dinners of it and stick it in the freezer. This recipe is one you can pull out of the freezer, defrost in the microwave and then just put it in the slow cooker and it is ready after a busy workday or day running the kids around to activities.


Since this Hawaiian chicken is topped with pineapple, I like to just buy the canned stuff and then I use the juice from the can as well. You could go with fresh pineapple but we’re trying to make it as easy as possible here!

Other than that, this recipe doesn’t really have any complicated ingredients – you might even have most of them on hand already.  If you like a little more flavor with your chicken I would recommend shredding the meat into the sauce.

Serving Tips

Like I said above, this recipe goes great served over some hot rice. To make your rice cooking easy and hands-off, I highly recommend investing in a good rice cooker:

I also like to serve my Hawaiian chicken with a side of vegetables. You could try these slow cooker carrots or this quick buttered broccoli recipe! You could also just do a side of vegetables with dip.
