It's such a wonderful feeling to come home from a long day and find a hot, delicious dinner waiting — courtesy of your slow cooker. This sweet and sour pineapple chicken is easy, yummy and packed with protein. We like to change things up a bit by switching out the veggies or tossing some slivered almonds over the top, then serving it over white rice, but you really can't go wrong with this dish!
