How to make sticky pineapple chicken?

  • Drain pineapple juice off into a bowl reserving pineapple slices for later use.
  • Add soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and honey to pineapple juice in bowl. Mix well. 
  • Place chicken in slow cooker and pour sauce over chicken. Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker, reserving sauce, and place chicken on a foil lined baking sheet.
  • Add 1 Tbsp cornstarch to a small sauce pan and whisk as you slowly add the sauce. Cook over medium-high heat just until thickened, about 3-5 minutes.

How to make the sticky pineapple chicken glaze?

I thicken the pineapple sauce that the chicken has cooked in and serve it up for those who want some extra sticky pineapple chicken. It’s really easy to thicken up the pineapple sauce with a little cornstarch on the stove top really quick.

Brush on the glaze just before you put the chicken under the broiler for extra crispy and sticky chicken.

How to get crispy skin on slow cooker chicken?

Broil the chicken on high for 3-5 minutes until the chicken skin is nice and crispy!

Once upon a time we lived in a place where I lived the battle of the oven. It was supposed to be a brand new oven but it worked once or twice and then quit. It only would get up to about 200 degrees or so. Great for keeping things warm not so much for cooking.

So I was constantly trying to come up with dishes that I could make in the slow cooker or the stove top. I love my crock pot but of course I really wanted Honey Glazed Chinese Chicken but that needed to be made in the oven not in the slow cooker.

After trying to figure it out for a few days I came across a recipe on Pinterest where she made chicken wings in the slow cooker and then put them under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp them up. Brilliant!
