If you opened my refrigerator right now, you’d likely be confused as to whether you were in a home kitchen or a fast food Chinese buffet. I’ve been testing different Asian-inspired recipes nonstop over the past two weeks, and this Crock Pot Pineapple Chicken recipe is ready for its debut!
Whenever I’m trying to figure out what to make for dinner (a scene that I like to pretend is an episode Chopped but more accurately resembles me rifling around the top refrigerator shelf and opening/sniffing assorted Tupperware containers), stir fry-ish recipes are my default.
Recipes like Pineapple Chicken are the perfect way to use up odd bits of produce threatening to expire, hit every food group in a single pan, taste great leftover for lunch the next day, and best of all, never ever fail to satisfy.
Preparing stir fries in the slow cooker (a concept that I readily and unapologetically admit is a misnomer, since no actual stir frying is involved) has the added benefit of being flexible on timing. By the time a crock pot recipe is ready, you can have the kitchen clean, the table set, a load of laundry in the dryer, and a glass of wine in your hand. Cheers to you and your domestic prowess!
