What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches I used my Ninja Auto-iQ 6 Quart Slow Cooker.* My favorite feature of this slow cooker is that it has a stove top function. This is perfect for sauteing or browning before you slow cook. This slow cooker has four manual cooking functions: slow cook, stove top sear/Saute, steam, and bake.
A sweet and light shredded chicken topped with warm pineapple slices.
- 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (frozen is okay)
- 1 (15 oz) bottle Hawaiian BBQ Sauce (Sweet Baby Rays and King’s Hawaiian are good brands)
- 1 (1 lb 4 oz) can pineapple slices
- Cilantro (optional)
- Hawaiian rolls or hot cooked rice, for serving
- Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker.
- Pour half of the bottle of BBQ sauce over the top of the chicken.
- Place pineapple slices around chicken.
- Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. If chicken is frozen it will be about 6 hours.
- Shred the chicken on a cutting board and then return back to slow cooker.
- Pour the rest of the BBQ sauce over the shredded chicken and stir.
- Serve chicken and pineapple over rice or on buns. If desired, topped with cilantro.
