Aloha Chicken Sandwiches

My children are finally at an age where two of them can play for 30 minutes without needing me.  I try to encourage this time while the toddler takes his nap.  I try to do as much as humanly possible in the half-hour of non-chaos.  Last week, one of my breaks including searching Pinterest for crock-pot recipes for chicken.  While I love seeing all the pins of my friends, I didn't have time to peruse...I headed for the search option.  I found this AMAZING chicken dish.

After opening the slow cooker to shred the chicken, my husband arrived in the kitchen following the aroma.  He remarked twice how great it smelled and how he couldn't wait to eat!  I started to worry that the meal would meet his expectations.  I had no need to worry; everyone ate the tender, marinated chicken hungrily.  The high praise from John continued, "I think this is the best meat dish you've ever made-it's tender, perfectly shredded, moist, tangy! I could eat it all! Make sure you write this one down."


  • 5- 6 chicken breasts
  • 8 oz. pineapple juice (the amt in the can)
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce 
  • slider buns


  1. Place 5-6 chicken breasts in the bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Mix pinapple juice and soy sauce.  Pour over chicken.
  3. Add one cup barbeque sauce.  Cook on low for 4 hours (since I tend to use frozen chicken, I bump my cooking time to 5 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from slow cooker.  Shred with two forks.  Put back in slow cooker for 30 minutes.
  5. Serve on buns, garnish as desired.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 4 hours

  1. Just wanted to say thanks for this recipe. I enjoy the firecracker chicken and having just attempted this for the first time, I have to say it tastes 99% the same! Would have never been able to figure out how to make it myself!
