Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

This recipe has gone pretty viral on Pinterest and the blogging world. It isn't really surprising though since the original recipe has only three ingredients and a lot of flavor. The sauce in and of itself is a very good sauce (sweet but just a little bit spicy), however I didn't want the dish to depend entirely on the sauce for deliciousness. The recipe below is reflective of the changes that I made. How did it turn out? Well... my husband said, "Eureka!" and had three helpings. Yeah, it was that good. We will definitely be making this easy dish again.

Adapted from Six Sisters’ Stuff

3 large Boneless Chicken Breasts (mine were still frozen!) (or 4-6 small)
1 Bottle Archer Farms Hawaiian Style Barbecue Sauce (from Target)
½ fresh pineapple, cut into small pieces
½ yellow onion, sliced
1 small green pepper, sliced

Spray the inside of your crock pot with cooking spray for an easy cleanup!  Place frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot and cover with sauce.  Top with fresh pineapple and onion.  Cook on High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-6 hours.  (I cooked mine for 4 hours, starting with frozen chicken breasts, and it was finished.) During the last hour of cooking, add green pepper. Shred chicken with two forks while still in the crock pot so the chicken will be well coated with sauce. Let it sit for a few minutes before serving to let the chicken soak up the sauce. Serve over rice.
