Pineapple Chicken

(The natural light was already lacking in the kitchen, so I did the best I could to get a decent photo!) If you don't own a slow cooker you need to stop what you are doing right now and go get yourself one! It makes the best meals. All you do is dump a bunch of stuff in the cooker, and then depending if you want a low or high setting, it will cook for several hours. No fuss in the kitchen and you have a dinner ready, waiting for you. At home I use it for a lot of things, like shredded Mexican beef, split pea soup, roasted chicken, turkey chili, etc. This time around I used it for Pineapple Chicken. I found this recipe on Kath Eats Real Food. This was SO good that I'm making again for Sunday. I get off of work at 6pm, so I'll have dinner ready in my slow cooker when I get home! 

I'm definitely going to add cilantro to mine on Sunday since I forgot to buy some for when I first made it! It was really missing that fresh, cilantro flavor. I didn't even need a knife for my chicken because it was so tender, it just fell apart as you poked it with the fork. I served mine topped with avocado, a side of Israeli couscous that was a medley from Trader Joe's, and a small caesar salad.
