Great crockpot recipe!

Saturday, April 09, 2011

It is a beautiful, sun-shiny Saturday here in AR! Such a nice change to have warm, breezy, sunny weather compared to the dreary winter we had.

While browsing for new recipe ideas, I found this one:

CrockPot Pineapple Chicken

So, of course I had to try it!

SO easy & SO good!
Only requires 4 ingredients, dump them all in the crockpot on low for 4-6 hours and VOILA! I tasted it on its own after it finished cooking, but tonight (or tomorrow) I will be having it over a big spinach leaf salad. Oh, and I used a low sodium, lite soy sauce to make it healthier & also added extra red & black pepper. Make sure you buy the pineapple in 100% juice and not syrup. It's better for you & less calories.

My chest is feeling better, so that is very good! I went on a long walk last night with my hubby. I reeeeeeeeeally wanted to go for a run this morning, but I refrained & decided to give myself a few more days to heal before I do anything too strenuous. I'm just SO ready to get back into my exercise routine and get these last few pounds back off before its time to go to Mexico!

9 weeks & 1 day until VACATION! emoticon

    Thanks for posting this recipe. I can't have it yet, but as soon as I can, I will enjoy it. I am now totally hooked onto the website: A Year of Slow Cooking, thanks so much for posting it here.

    Hi Firefly,
    I am new to this, P2D6, so I am confused about the pineapple. Are you on P3? I see people mixing these foods and I am confused as protocol says not to mix veggies and I don't see anything about pineapple. Or are you just daydreaming?! for the future? I also see people using soy milk or dairy and I didn't think that was on the protocol either. Sounds like you are doing great. Just thought I would ask. Keep up the good work.
