Pineapple Chicken

Dinner as Easy as 1-2-3 Ingredients!

Simple meals with few ingredients are great for Low FODMAP or restrictive diet cooking to reduce the chance of digestive upset. This is easy to throw together in the morning in the crockpot and come home to dinner in the evening.

I use the Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Vinaigrette because it has avocado oil, a healthy fat, instead of canola or soy oils which are inflammatory to the body.  It’s one of the only store bought dressings that has the least amount of troublesome ingredients for Low FODMAP. It only takes a small amount to get the full flavor from this dressing.

To reduce sugar content, I drain out the pineapple juice and use the cubed pineapple to give the chicken a slightly sweet flavor. Plus, pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps to digest protein. So this can help with digestion of this meal. 

This works great as a crockpot meal or you can bake the chicken at 425 for 25-30 minutes in aluminum foil pouches. Two great ways to get dinner done in a simple, quick and cost effective way.

This pairs well with white or brown rice and steamed broccoli or a green salad.

Pineapple Chicken

An easy crockpot dinner with 3 ingredients!

  • Prep Time5 min
  • Ready in6 hours
  • Serving Size2 to 4

Ingredients

  • 2 to 4 organic chicken breasts
  • 1 can organic cubed pineapple in water or its own juice - strain the juice out
  • 1/3 cup Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing

Instructions

1

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot. Add salt/pepper and Italian seasoning if desired. 

2

Drain the pineapple juice from the can to reduce sugar content. Or use fresh pineapple if you have it available. Pour the cubed pineapple on top of the chicken.

3

Add 1/3 cup (or more if desired) Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Vinaigrette on top of the chicken and pineapple. As the pineapple cooks, the juices will create more sauce that will be leftover in the bottom of the crockpot.

4

Set the crockpot on LOW for 6 hours.

5

Serve chicken with the pineapple and any leftover juices from the bottom of the crockpot. Pairs with white or brown rice, steamed veggies or a green salad. 

6

Baked Chicken Option: Instead of using the crockpot, you can wrap the chicken with the pineapple and dressing in aluminum foil or just use a baking dish and bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes.
