Easy Recipe for Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken


This recipe for slow cooker Hawaiian chicken is super simple to make.  The chicken is super moist and the sauce is slightly sweet...but not overly sweet.  Maybe this Hawaiian chicken will transport us for a moment or two to a tropical location.  This time of year, I'll take all the tropical moments I can get!  My whole family enjoys this meal...enjoy!

    What section of the store would I find tapioca? (I've never used it before...) Would the recipe work without it? This sounds tasty, I'll have to try it soon!

    1. It's by the jello/gelatin. It's just a thickener. The recipe will work but it will be a little runny. Good luck!

    1. tapioca is just a thickener. You could just add in some cornstarch instead.
