need something super simple and (most likely) doable with what you’ve got in your kitchen?
look no further. even me – miss poor college graduate now intern girl – didn’t have to go to the grocery store for tonight’s dinner. yaaaaay for not spending money!!
pineapple bbq chicken
- 1/2 bottle of bbq sauce
- 3 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 20 oz can of pineapple tidbits (heh. isn’t that a funny word – tidbits?? I like that word.)
- throw it all in your crockpot
- cook on low for 6 hours
- serve over rice
taste rating: 6/10
maybe I didn’t cook it long enough, but my sauce was all runny. the chicken was delicious, but the sauce was almost too watery to have any taste. and next time I’d use white rice rather than brown, but that’s just personal pref.
ease of cooking: 9/10
super easy – I mean, it’s a crockpot recipe for crying out loud. but I did have to call my roommate and have her turn on the crockpot while I was at work because I couldn’t very well have it cooking for 9 hours when the recipe only called for 5. although with how runny the sauce was, maybe I should’ve cooked it for 9. wah wahh. oh well. it made TONS (way more than needed for my regular party of one dinner group) so now I have leftovers for tomorrow.
