Tips: This was a great way to use a whole chicken and a different flavor that we don't have very often. If you wait until whole chickens go on sale, you can make this a very affordable meal. It did take a little while to put together but since it is started in the morning, you are done and cleaned up at dinner time. The original recipe called for the chicken to be quartered first but I found that it cooked fine whole and was easier to break apart once it was finished. I also shared this recipe at Dining with Debbie's Crock Pot Wednesday.

This was pretty easy to make and was nice because it was in the crockpot. I was expecting it to have a sweet taste to it because of the pineapple, but the pineapple actually ended up tasting more like chicken.
It was still good, just not exactly what I expected.
