I am always looking for ways for my dinners to be healthier.  Anything I can do to make that happen I’m on it. Looking into clean eating and discovering how easy it could be? I decided that making Slow Cooker Clean Eating Pineapple Salsa Chicken was going on the menu!

The great thing about this recipe is that you can be “clean” or not and you will still have a delicious dinner.  And it’s simple simple simple.

If you want to be “clean” use a fresh salsa (even from the store can be fine) or make your own.

Slow Cooker Clean Eating Pineapple Salsa Chicken is also a GREAT freezer meal! You guys know that I LOVE making a freezer meal…especially one that has different flavors like Pineapple Salsa Chicken. So yummy! And not a typical Crockpot Roast either. This chicken was moist and delish and the perfect meal for a night on the go (you know we have those nights where the kids have soccer practice, homework, you have to go to the store, etc). Sometimes you just need dinner to be ready when you get home because you’re only going to have 15 minutes at home! Check out all of Who Needs a Cape’s Freezer Meals! We LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!

  1. This looks delish… I pinned it to try later

  2. WOWOWOW! I <3 these kinds of dishes. So simple, healthy and can even be made ahead. Perfect! Thanks so much for sharing at Weekend Potluck.

  3. Just made this and my family LOVES it. It was super easy to make. I chose to serve it on soft tortillas with some cheese and a little sour cream. Despite being a little “drippy” it was delicious. Next time I’m going to use some fresh salsa and maybe some other items for additional flavor. Not that it is necessary.

    • Yes if you were serving it taco style I can see it being drippy 😉 I served it with brown rice and the rice absorbed most of the flavor 😉 I really liked it too! (but adding some fresh cilantro would put it over the top for me!)

  4. Can you please tell me how many servings your recipes make? Thanks!

    • I tried to make all of mine to serve about 4…but serving size is hard to say 😉 You know what your family eats!

    Made this but it was too sweet for me and because of that it I thought it cancelled out the salsa flavor, having said that I will definitely make it again but next time I will only use 1/2 the pineapple and add some onion as well. Thanks for the idea – it will be a regular with those changes.

      I hear you! I have to keep it toned down to make sure my kids will eat it 😉 But yeah – spice it up!
