crock pot hawiian bbq chicken

If you're on pinterest, I am certain you've seen this crock pot dish floating around (I saw it here and here).  I've mentioned it on the blog before as well.  The one problem I had with it, is that it didn't really seem like a complete meal to me, unless I made a vegetable side.  Also for some reason Ryann has something against chicken once it has been shredded.  Which led me to this...


Basically I diced the chicken before adding it and threw in some chopped bell peppers, making it more of a one pot meal to serve over rice.  It makes great leftovers for lunch the next day.  If you have any ideas of other vegetables that would be good in the mix, definitely share in the comment section!

Oh, and obviously this is no longer the worlds simplest crockpot recipe, since you would actually have to cut up the chicken and chop the bell peppers (GASP!) but I swear, it was easy.  So easy I think I'll make that for dinner this week, it sounds good... and I did just buy frozen bell peppers from Trader Joes...

Crock Pot Hawiian BBQ Chicken

  • 1 package boneless skinless chicken breasts (mine had 3), cut into bite size pieces
  • 20 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 2-3 bell peppers, chopped
  • 16 ounce bottle BBQ sauce
  1. Combine everything in your crockpot, cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours.  Serve over rice (we used brown).

Ta da!  That was simple.  And tasty.

I'm pretty sure this is going on my menu this week! You could probably add carrots towards the end..

Not sure if you're an onion fan but those could be added as well.
