EASY CROCK POT HAWAIIAN CHICKEN

Easy Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken is the perfect blend of sweet and savory with a delicious burst of pineapple flavor. This Hawaiian Chicken recipe only requires 4 ingredients and results in fork tender chicken that falls apart when it's ready!
Servings: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs 2 lbs. fresh or frozen chicken tenders (or chicken breasts)
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  • Place the chicken tenders in the Crock Pot and then add the pineapple juice, soy sauce and brown sugar. Place the lid on the slow cooker and turn on low for 7-8 hours or 3-4 hours on high.
  • At the end of the cooking time, remove the lid and shred the chicken with two forks. The meat should pull apart very easily and should all be shredded and ready to eat within a few minutes!

TO THICKEN THE SAUCE (OPTIONAL):

  • The sauce is delicious but ends up being pretty thin so if you’d like to thicken up the sauce, that can be done very easily with a little bit of cornstarch and water.
    About 30 minutes before you are ready to eat, turn the slow cooker to high heat. In a small bowl, mix 2-3 tablepoons of cornstarch with a few tablespoons of cold water. Mix together with a fork until the cornstarch is dissolved and then add to the sauce and chicken. Give a few quick stirs and then replace the lid.
    The mixture should start bubbling a little bit and will thicken up perfectly in about 20-30 minutes. You can use two forks to shred the chicken – it should pretty much fall apart at this point! Turn the slow cooker to low or warm until ready to serve. For an even thicker sauce, use a little bit more cornstarch with the water before adding to the chicken.
