Slow Cooker: Pineapple Salsa Chicken

1 Comment

Creating a stockpile of healthy recipes is essential for a busy family! If you’re looking to fill up that recipe box with quick on-the-go meals, this recipe fits the bill. A fresh take on the Americana “sloppy joes,” you’ll swap out ground beef for some white meat and a sweet pineapple salsa. You will need ample time to let all those flavors simmer together in a slow cooker, so be sure to start preparation in time for the crockpot to cook overnight or while the kiddos are at school. Serve with a flour tortilla or sans bread, either way is delicious! Happy cooking!PineappleSalsaChicken1_horRESIZED
