Recipes For Busy Parents- What’s for Dinner Wednesday

Recipes for Busy ParentsWelcome Back to What’s For Dinner Wednesdays! Where you can find tons of awesome Recipes for Busy Parents on their mid week adventures.

This week I have decided to go with something that is not only super easy, but insanely tasty and ready on the go.

I love slow cooker meals! Stick them on in the morning and they are ready to eat at dinner time, without any fuss or over thinking. What a great way to have an amazing dinner ready at the end of the day!

Tonight’s “What’s for Dinner Wednesday” is…. 

Pineapple Chicken, Taking it Slow


1/4 C. Chicken Broth
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Tbsp Corn Starch
2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
2 Tbsp Pineapple Jam
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar


2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Cut into strips
2 Cups of Chopped Fresh Pineapple, Cubed
4 Green Onions Sliced Thin
2 Garlic Cloves, Chopped
1 Seeded and Chopped, Red Pepper
2 Cups Sugar Snap Peas, halved


1. Stir together and dissolve the cornstarch and broth, set mixture aside.
2. Brown chicken in a skillet using oil, seasoning as you go and place into slow cooker.
3. Using the same skillet brown the onions and pineapple and transfer to slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
