Instant Pot Pineapple Chicken is going to be one of the easiest chicken recipes to make in your magic making electric pressure cooker. This is one of those constant recipes that I have been making for over year, and I finally decided to put it up on my blog. I know…a little delayed bird action, but I finally decided to take photos and share super easy recipe with you all.
I was in the beginning stages of my Instant Pot days, and I was still trying to figure everything out with it. Stephen came home with a bottle of Trader Joe’s Pineapple salsa, and I fell in love with it. The next day, I made bring home another jar because I knew that I totally wanted to use it to make Instant Pot Pineapple Chicken.
The Pineapple salsa had all of the makings of a fabulous base for the sauce for it! I am so spoiled that he works at Trader Joe’s. I get to try so many different new products out, and sometimes before anyone else! I love it.
We made some jasmine rice with it (from Trader Joe’s, too) and called it a delicious and easy dinner! However, now that I’m a on Weight Watcher’s diet plan, I don’t eat rice with it…I don’t eat rice at all. I know that I can eat a little bit, but I love that I can eat this for ZERO POINTS. Yes…you read that right…zero points!
My Instant Pot Pineapple Chicken has ZERO FreeStyle Points!
This is what is making me love the Instant Pot pineapple chicken recipe even more: It has zero FreeStyle points! It makes ordinary instant pot chicken recipes much more fun, vibrant, and less boring. Admit it, we can seriously only eat but so much of one type of chicken before it becomes boring.
Once food becomes boring, then we start losing our motivation. Our palates are excited at first, but then it starts becoming…meh. I want those carbs!

Believe it or not, I DID find a way to beat my snack chip carb cravings! You know because…I miss that crunch of chips and crackers! Well, I made these amazing “everything” seasoned tofu chips/crackers and they were pretty damn good! Actually, so much better than what I thought they were going to be.
In my Instant Pot pineapple chicken recipe, I use a little bit of a cajun seasoning called “Slap Ya’ Mama!” To me, it’s by far one of the most amazing cajun seasonings around! I actually had one of my most amazing BIFF send me a bottle because she told me about it. I laughed at the name, but man that’s some good stuff!
Enjoy my Instant Pot Pineapple Chicken Recipe!
I already know that you’re going to enjoy it because it’s so simple to make, and it’s super yummy! Most people might call it Hawaiian Chicken, but it’s missing a few ingredients to really make it that way. Remember, homemade Pineapple salsa has zero points! If you’re using store bough pineapple salsa, you will have points because they add in sugar and sometimes, olive oil. Enjoy!
