Crock Pot Week - Pineapple Chicken


Serve this crock pot pineapple chicken over steamed rice for a complete, healthy asian meal. Pineapple and red bell pepper load the dish with vitamin C, and lean chicken breast contributes loads of lean protein. For an extra nutrition boost, skip the white rice and instead use brown rice for extra fiber and B vitamins.
