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!
