This time of year — back to school — it seems like making dinner for a family gets even harder than usual. The recipe below is a scrumptious solution. It’s a one-pot dinner made in the slow cooker, so it can be ready for you when you get home at the end of the day.
The best part about this dinner is that kids love it. Juicy chunks of pineapple make it sweet and delectable. The pineapple also serves as a tenderizer for chicken, so the meat turns out moist and succulent. Serve it with steamed white or brown rice for an easy back-to-school meal.
