Crockpot Pineapple Chicken
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves
Dash of pepper
Paprika to taste
20 ounce pineapple chunks in juice
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 TBSP soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
Arrange chicken in bottom of crockpot. Sprinkle with pepper and paprkia. In a small bowl, combine pineapple, mustard and soy sauce. Pour over chicken. Add minced garlic. Cover and cook on LOW 7-9 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.
So this is going to be a little funny on my end. I thought that this recipe was really good, but felt that it could have used a little more juice (or water) for the chicken. The chicken was just on the dry side when I made it, but as I am typing the recipe out, it said not to drain the pineapple, and I did (mistakenly!). So if you follow the actual recipe, I bet this will turn out just right for you!!!

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken breasts in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle taco seasoning on both sides of chicken breasts, and pour salsa over all.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juicy and its juices run clear.
Sprinkle chicken evenly with cheese, and continue baking for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with sour cream if desired, and serve.
This was an easy recipe (like all of the ones I try!). It was good and simple. Nothing to die for, but it is something I will still do in the future.
