Experience the perfect blend of savory and sweet with this Sweet Hawaiian Crock-Pot Chicken recipe. Tender chicken chunks are cooked to perfection in a delightful sauce of pineapple juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce, making this dish a tropical delight that’s incredibly easy to prepare.


  • 2 lbs chicken chunks (white, dark, or mixed)
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 can (medium) pineapple chunks (optional)
  • 1 small Vidalia onion, chopped (optional)
  • Green pepper chunks (optional)


  • Prepare Your Ingredients: Start by chopping your chicken into bite-sized chunks if not already done. If you’re using the optional ingredients, chop the Vidalia onion and green pepper into chunks as well.
  • Mix the Sauce: In a bowl, combine the pineapple juice, packed brown sugar, and low sodium soy sauce. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Assemble in the Crock-Pot: Place the chicken chunks in the Crock-Pot. If you’re using the optional pineapple chunks, onion, and green pepper, add them in as well.
  • Pour the Sauce: Pour the prepared pineapple-soy sauce mixture over the chicken and vegetables.
  • Cook: Set your Crock-Pot to low and cook for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. The chicken should be tender and the flavors well-blended.
  • Serve: Once cooked, give everything a good stir and serve hot. This dish pairs beautifully with steamed rice or a fresh green salad.


  • Check for Doneness: Ensure the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  • Adjust Sweetness: If you prefer a less sweet dish, you can reduce the amount of brown sugar or add a splash of vinegar for a slight tang.
  • Thickening the Sauce: For a thicker sauce, mix a tablespoon of cornstarch with two tablespoons of water to create a slurry and add this to the Crock-Pot during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
