Pineapple Barbeque Chicken

2 cups barbeque sauce
1 15 oz can pineapple chunks
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 chopped bell pepper

Combine barbeque sauce and juice from pineapple chunks in a bowl.

Place chicken in slow cooker. Pour sauce over it.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours, adding pineapple and bell pepper late in the cooking.

Editor’s Note:

I always recommend adding fruits and vegetables late in the cooking with a slow cooker if you like them a little crunchy. Add them early on and they tend to lack flavor.

Sort-of Souvlaki

1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cloved crushed garlic
4 pork chops
1 onion, cubed
1 bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces

  1. Combine lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, oregano and garlic.
  2. In a crockpot, place pork chops and onions. Pour in lemon mixture.
  3. Cook in crockpot on low 6 hours. Add bell pepper no more than 1 hour before recipe is done.

I call this recipe “sort-of Souvlaki” because the basics come from a recipe for Souvlaki, but the lemon mixture is used as a marinade, the pork is diced then cooked on skewers on the grill with the onion and bell pepper.

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

2 cups brown sugar
1 bone-in, cured picnic ham (NOT spiral cut)

In bottom of slow cooker spread about 1 cup of brown sugar. Place ham on top, flat end down, and rub the rest of the brown sugar all over it.

Most hams will be too tall for your crockpot lid to fit. You can beat this by making a lid out of aluminum foil. Do your best to keep it close enough to keep the moisture in so that your ham will not dry out.

Cook on low for 8 hours.

Editor’s Note: Obviously ham is not the healthiest of foods, but it can be good in moderation. Try not to overeat or make this recipe too often. But it’s so good in a lot of recipes and hard to resist.
