Summer is officially here this weekend – long, hot summer days makes me want to spend more time having fun and less time in a hot kitchen. I love using my crock pot in the summer- it’s fast and easy, plus no heating up the kitchen by turning on the oven!This Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken is so yummy, and so easy!
It is as simple as layering chicken, onion, bbq sauce and pineapple in your crock pot.
Let that mix cook while you are out doing something fun. When you return home- just shred that tender chicken and let it soak up the juices.
Serve it over rice, or pile it on a bun for a fast and easy summer supper!
Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken
4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (frozen okay)
1 small onion, diced
1 bottle (18 ounce) bbq sauce (your favorite)
1 can (20 ounce) pineapple chunks, drained
Spray the inside of your crock pot with cooking spray. Place chicken in crock pot and sprinkle onions on top; pour on the bbq sauce and top it all off with the pineapple chunks.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours or until the chicken is tender and easily shreds.
Shred chicken in the crock pot with two forks and allow it soak up the juice. Serve with rice or on buns. Note: if you plan to serve it on buns, you may want to use crushed pineapple instead of chunks.
