We love to try new things to eat in our home. I’m usually the one who cooks the fancier meals in our home because it has been anonymously decided that I’m the better cook in our home. I have been getting these whole chickens from the grocery store because they are cheaper to get to feed our family of five. I typically cook them a different way than this, but Crystal requested that I make these two with brown sugar and pineapple.

I decided to go ahead and try it and it turned out completely delicious. As a result, I’m eager to share with you this new recipe that will be one I’m confident you’ll want to add to your menu plans often. These two simple sweet pineapple whole chickens lasted us through two meals with homemade mashed potatoes, rolls, and vegetables.
