The weather is warming up & it is almost crockpot season. I am going to try & hook you up with some good recipes. The only thing that holds me back from these types of recipes is the photography part. Casseroles & crockpot dinners are incredibly hard to make appetizing in pictures. Anyway, I saw this Slow Cooker Pineapple Glazed Chicken from Six Sisters’ Stuff & the shiny glaze had me sold. I tweaked it to make it my own by adding ham making it super scrumptious! This has easy & delicious written all over it! My husband thought the glaze even tasted like a saucy orange chicken. It’s definitely Asian inspired with a Hawaiian twist. Give it a try & tell me what you think!
