Hawaiian Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

This recipe was a bit of an experiment (a combination of a couple of different recipes) but ended up being delicious! Good barbeque and tomato flavors and the pineapple added a sweetness to it. We both liked it a lot!

Hawaiian Pulled Chicken Sandwiches














Ingredients:
  • 20 oz can of pineapple chunks
  • Medium onion (diced)
  • 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tbsp of paprika
  • 6 oz of tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp of minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 3 chicken breasts
Ingredients for Serving:
  • Sandwich or hamburger buns (we used whole wheat hoagie buns)
  • Cheese (we used Colby Jack)
  • Lettuce or spinach
  • Barbeque sauce 
  • Tomato (sliced)
  • Pickles (sweet or dill) 
  • Caramelized onions 
Directions:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients (except the chicken) in a crockpot.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Add chicken; push the chicken down so that it is covered by sauce.
  4. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
  5. Shortly before serving, take the chicken out of crockpot and shred with a fork (it should be well enough cooked that it falls apart).
  6. Put shredded chicken back into crockpot for a short amount of time to reabsorb the flavors (10-15 minutes).
  7. Serve on a bun with any desired sandwich toppings.
