Since Mr. Jax arrived in our lives I have to admit that cooking dinner has not been on my priority list. By the time dinner rolled around I was often exhausted and sometimes cereal was the best I could do. But it has been four months since he arrived so I figured I should probably get my act together. Enter the slow cooker. I received my slow cooker as a wedding present over two years ago but I never used it until a couple weeks ago. Now I find myself wondering why I waited so long. There is usually less than 10 minutes of prep and it cooks the meal for you. To say I am obsessed with the appliance is an understatement.
For the past couple weeks I have also had this recipe and this recipe on one of my Pinterest boards. So, I decided to combine a little bit of both and I ended up with my own recipe. I know I haven’t done a recipe post in a long time but the result was too delicious not to share.
Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Pulled Chicken
3 lbs. boneless chicken breast (Mine were still frozen)
1 bottle Hawaiian BBQ sauce (I used one from Target–Archer Farms brand)
1 cup frozen pineapple (could use canned but drain first)
4 ounces amber beer
1 teaspoon onion powder
1. Add the chicken to the bottom of the slow cooker. Cover with BBQ sauce, beer, pineapple, and onion powder.
2. Cook on HIGH for 4-6 hours of LOW for 8-10 hours.
3. Remove chicken, shred and add back to sauce mixture allowing the flavors to mix for another 30 minutes on LOW.
3. Serve over steamed rice or on hamburger bun.
