MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 8, 2015

"I thought this was really good, however I did omit the bacon, forgot to drain the pineapple and used more bbq sauce and pineapple than called for. The "sauce" was going to be too juicy so I added some cornstarch mixed with water to thicken it and my family all really enjoyed it. My husband suggested adding peppers, onions and mushrooms next time. Served over white rice, i will definitely be making this again with the added suggestions of hubby!"

"This recipe was easy for a work night that is a plus. The chicken was juicy. It was a nice sweet bbq chicken. I love things I can make in the crock pot!"

"We really enjoyed this recipe. I made it just as described, except that I let it cook longer since I work full time. We made mashed potatoes & asparagus for sides and it was the perfect combo."

"Love this chicken!! Great flavor.....I don't think it's expected that the pineapple flavor should come through....it adds to the overall flavor in a subtle way, and provides texture as well. So easy to whip together, and so good! A real winner!"

"Easy and simple slow cooker recipe. I wanted something different and this was great. Just made a salad and cooked wild rice. Sauce was great over the rice. I will make again."
