Slow Cooker Kealakekua Chicken

Kealakekua Chicken (Key-alah key-coo-ah)
It is cold here! Lets put our minds on a nice tropical beach...
Wait: Can you hear that?
“A homesick island boy - I want to go back to my fish and poi.
“I want to go back to my little grass shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii.
“Where the humuhumunukunukuapua'a Go swimming by”

Here is a simple, fairly quick for a slow cooker, dinner with a minimum of ingredients and directions.

  • 3 Boneless Skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
    6 ounces white mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
    ½ tsp sugar
    2 cups low sodium chicken broth
    2 tbs teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • can crushed pineapple in juice

The night before: Rinse the breast pieces and pat dry. Place them in a zipper bag with contents of caned crushed pineapple in juice.

That Day:
  1. Wipe out the slow cooker and spray it with cooking spray. Turn it on low. Add the chicken and pineapple from the bag.

  1. In a sauce pan: Heat 1 tbs vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and 1 tsp sugar and sauté until golden, 3 minutes. Add the broth and 2 tbs soy sauce along with the garlic powder and ginger. Stir and heat through. Pour over chicken.

  1. Cook on LOW for 4-5 hours.

    Serving this over a bed of rice pilaf with Brussels sprouts on the side.

Here is the song to go along with. You might try some hula dancing by the crock pot! Go ahead, no one is watching, have fun. Think about those warm island breezes. Maybe a rum drink? I know you want to get “lei”-ed.

Wish Master would want me to serve Him a luau on a beach of our 50th state!

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
