Crock-Pot Barbecue Pineapple Chicken

Ingredients
  • 3 lbs Chicken Breast (uncooked)
  • 20 oz can of Pineapple (sliced or chunks - drained - cut to bite size)
  • 18 oz bottle of BBQ Sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray's - use your favorite)
  • *1 tsp of Crushed Red Pepper (optional - see tip below)
Directions
Spray crock-pot with non stick cooking spray.  Place chicken breast on bottom of crock-pot.  Mix BBQ sauce, drained pineapple and crushed red pepper together, pour over chicken.  Cook on low for approximately 7-8 hours or until tender. Enjoy over rice with steamed veggies, or shred to make BBQ sandwiches or yummy quesadillas!  

Tips:  

Cooking times may vary from crock-pot to crock-pot. 


The crushed red pepper makes it a little spicy/hot.  If you don't care for spicy, reduce the amount of red pepper to 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon, or just skip the red pepper. 

One more tip...to get all the BBQ sauce out of the bottle, I poured approximately 2 Tablespoons of the juice from the can of pineapples into the bottle and shook it up!   

If you LOVE pineapple, add more...you can't add too much!
