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.

  4. That chicken looks wonderful. I’ve not tried a sweet chicken recipe like this before. And, Crystal is very lucky to have a husband who likes to cook! #HomeMattersParty

    • Chicken is one of those meals that can be turned into a whole bunch of different flavors. I love mashed potatoes (Crystal is good at cooking those!) I also love making my potato casserole with our chicken and turkey dinners.

      Thank you for commenting.

    • Yes, I believe it would work in a slow cooker too.
      I enjoy cooking for the family especially since I got nominated as the better cook in the family.

  8. This is sounds so good but then again I love pineapple. Lately I have been thinking a lot about trying pineapple with chicken but wasn’t sure it would work. Now I am going to give it a shot.
