Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 4 hours
Total Time 4 hours 20 minutes


  • 500g Chicken Mince
  • 1 large red capsicum
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 can crushed pineapple
  • 1/2 cup rice (uncooked)
  • 2/3 cup BB@ sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • herbs and spices
  • breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup of cream


  • Start by making the chicken balls by combining the chicken mince, half the capsicum grated, half the onion diced small or grated, grated cheese, 1 egg, garlic salt, herbs and spices, bread crumbs and uncooked rice. Mix it all together, and add 3 or 4 tablespoons of the crushed pineapple (drained)
  • Roll into balls and brown them in a fry pan, then set aside to cool.
  • Into your slow cooker, tip the can of crushed tomatoes, brown sugar, BBQ sauce, the rest of your capsicum and onion diced small, minced garlic, black pepper, left over crushed pineapple (with juice) and water. Stir until all combined. Pop the balls into the sauce and cook on low for about 4 to 5 hours. If the sauce gets too thick, add a little more water, and 30 minutes before serving, add 1/4 cup of cream to the sauce and stir it through. Serve with mash or on rice 🙂
  • The balls can be made and browned off the night before then put in the fridge.
  • For a sweeter BBQ sauce, substitute the can of crushed tomatoes for a can of tomato soup.
  • Enjoy!

  1. I made this tonight…Yes I loved it but…was very sweet(that’s ok I like it like that)however hubby didn’t & added some hot chilli sauce to it which he then found it more to his palate
    I found 4 hours cooking time ample & because I was not ready to eat till another hour I had to add about 1/2 cup more water + a touch more when adding cream
    Served with garlic bread…did not want rice as was in meatballs + it was a Frid. night(lazy night)
    I personally would serve with cauliflower mash or just the garlic bread
    BONUS~My autistic son actually loved it & did not pick up on the pineapple~All in all GREAT DISH
