Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

When I was at the grocery store last week they had chicken thighs and chicken legs on sale. Needless to say I racked up on some framily sized packs of both. Since I have so many chicken parts I'm now struggling to find something different to do with all of it.
I went through the pantry and found some almost forgotten ingredients and spices and came up with crock pot pineapple teriyaki chicken.

Here is how I did it:
  • 4 each of chicken thighs and chicken legs, skin removed
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of corstarch
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons of teriyaki sauce
  • (1) 6 ounce can of crushed pineapple with juices
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
Place the chicken thighs and legs in an even layer as possible in a 5 - 6 quart crock pot.

Evenly sprinkle the onions and peppers over the top of the chicken.

In a medium sized bowl combine the brown sugar and cornstarch with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients to the brown sugar/ cornstarch mixture and thoroughly mix. Pour the mixture over top of the chicken, onions and peppers in the crock pot.

Cook on low for 7 - 9 hours or on high for 4 - 5  hours. Serve with favorite steamed veggie and rice.

I found the original recipe here and adapted it to my taste and for the crock pot.


  1. Your Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken in a Slow Cooker is just what I need today. It really looks so good and I can't wait to give it a try. Thank you so much for sharing this dish with us here at Full Plate Thursday. You have a great week end and please come back!

  2. I saw your recipe link at the Grocery Cart Challenge. It looks very yummy. I have a similar recipe that I make in a skillet, which I call HAWAIIAN CHICKEN. I use pineapple juice, honey, and teriyaki sauce. My hubby is a little picky (well... a lot), but I think I might try to convince him that I can make this in the crockpot with crushed pineapple and see what he thinks. I dredge my chicken first in pancake mix, brown a little bit and then add the sauce (in the skillet). This way looks just as good and SO MUCH EASIER! Yum!

  3. I love the flavors in this dish! Your whole dinner looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing and Happy Foodie Friday!
