Paleo Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken

5-Ingredient Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken | Plaid & Paleo #paleo

It rained all day yesterday. I know some people love a good rainy day to stay inside. I’m not one of those people. I wouldn’t mind if it was sunny 24/7. When I lived in Los Angeles, I rarely missed the seasons. Sometimes I missed the changing of the leaves in fall, but never the cold. The rain also threw a wrench in my plan to cook and photograph new recipes. Rain also equates poor light. Oh well, my fight with weather is never ending because mother nature will always win.

If you can’t tell, I eat a lot of chicken. I’ve actually been attempting to eat more red meat, but always find myself going back to chicken. I’m about all chicken’ed out though. I want to say this will be the last chicken recipe for a while, but I’m sure by next week I will be back on the chicken bandwagon. So I know I cook chicken in the crockpot a lot. It is just so easy! If you haven’t done it before, get on that. Despite being over chicken, I love this Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken recipe. Bonus it only has five ingredients. Serves 4.

    I have never used coconut sugar before. Would the recipe work with other natural sweeteners (honey, maple syrup, etc)?

    I make this recipe all the time. I am going to start a whole30 and was wondering if this recipe could be made without the coconut sugar and still work? I figured it might because the sugars from the pineapple would make up for the coconut sugar. What are your thoughts?
