We all struggle to find ways to work variety into our weekly dinner menu. This Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops recipe is both a time saver, with just 20 minutes of prep, and a delicious way to work pork chops and asian-inspired fare into your regular dinner routine. Not to mention the convenience of the set it and forget it nature of slow cooker meals.
Veggie chips, granola bars, fat-free frozen yogurt — we know are basically junk food in disguise. But diet soda, in all its fizzy glory, seems like it should be a real-deal “free” food. After all, how can you go wrong with zero calories?

All it takes is a little bit of prep, a quick marinade, and about 13 minutes of cooking. This recipe also works for Sweet and Sour Chicken if you make it using boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
Filled with fresh veggies and beans, this typical breakfast dish could easily become a dinner! Enjoy, mc
Prep time is about 5 minutes on this one! whoop!
I began with four skinless, boneless chicken breasts that I sliced in half lengthwise and then cut into bite-sized pieces. I find that they cook a lot more evenly that way and it saves a ton of time when cooking chicken in recipes like this. You’ll definitely want to make sure you are using a very sharp knife and I like to pop my chicken into the freezer for about 15 minutes before slicing, as it makes them perfect for cutting, in my opinion.
I tossed my chicken into a skillet with a bit of oil. I used coconut oil as I was trying to make this recipe as Paleo-friendly as possible. While my chicken was browning, I mixed together the sauce for the chicken. While traditional orange chicken always calls for frying the chicken bites in a cornstarch batter. I omitted that part to reduce a few calories. Believe me, you won’t miss it once you taste the sauce on this chicken!
