Pineapple Mandarin Chicken – Food Contributor

I cook with chicken more than any other meat, so I really appreciate new chicken recipes. Melissa is here today sharing a delicious crock pot chicken recipe. I can’t wait to make it for my family.

Hello, Organize and Decorate Everything readers! I am so excited to be back again to share a recipe with you! For this recipe you get to pull out your trusty crock pot for an easy dinner on a day when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare for mealtime. I love this one because there isn’t a lot of extra prep involved. You just throw those ingredients in and off you go. There are a few different variations on this meal and you can choose the one that you would like to use. You can either leave the chicken breasts whole and serve them with a salad and rice or you can take the chicken out of the crock pot, chop it up and throw it back in with some bell peppers for a little longer and serve over rice. It’s up to you, but both options are so delicious!

  • chopped green onions (optional)
  • 4 cups prepared brown rice
