Tender, juicy chicken slow cooked in fresh pineapple and roasted tomato salsa with sweet and spicy flavors.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness (no more than 1 inch)
3 cups chopped pineapple (I recommend fresh but canned would work too)
1/2 medium red onion, diced (about 1/3 cup)
1 medium jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, finely chopped
1 15-ounce can fire roasted tomatoes (not drained)
1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
cooked rice, for serving (optional)
Combine pineapple, onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, salt, and chili powder in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Lightly grease your slow cooker. Place chicken in a single layer (the best you can, it’s okay if they overlap a little) in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Pour salsa mixture over chicken.
Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours or on high 2-3 hours. Serve chicken and salsa over rice if desired. (see note for alternate serving option)
