are so many sides that you can serve with this chicken. Below are just a couple of my favorite side dishes for this type of food.

I usually make some rice to accompany this chicken, as it is easy to cook in a rice cooker. For something a little healthier than rice, you can try making some cauliflower rice.

The fried vegetables are great on the side and pair nicely with this Hawaiian chicken. I recommend frying a variety of vegetables like broccoli, green beans, baby spinach, and some Brussels sprouts.

For a super healthy accompaniment, you can make some zucchini noodles. For the best noodles, you will need equipment called a spiralizer. The spiralizer is super easy to use, and you can turn a lot of vegetables into delicious noodles.

You don’t need to add the peppers in the slow cooker if you don’t like them. You’ll lose a bit of flavor, but it’ll still be great thanks to the tasty chunks of onion, chicken, and pineapple.

The chicken thigh is my suggested cut of chicken, but other cuts of chicken will turn out great too. For example, chicken thighs, breasts or chicken wings will also work very well with the flavors of the sauce.

Ketchup can be easily replaced with a tomato sauce or tomato paste. For best results, I recommend sticking with ketchup, but the other alternatives will work great.

One thing to keep in mind with slow-cooked chicken recipes is that the meat can dry out a bit and overcook. To prevent this from happening, try not to cook for longer than recommended. Six hours or more can result in overcooked chicken.

How long to

keep leftovers

This dish is leftover friendly, so you can store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. If you’re just storing it in the refrigerator, it will last for a couple of days. Alternatively, it will last about six months in the freezer.

When you go to reheat leftover chicken, I recommend using the microwave or a hot oven. I don’t recommend using a slow cooker to reheat cooked meals.
