Hawaiin BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Um yum!!  Gotta love the crock pot meal :)  Want to thank P-Ron for this recipe!!  This was really good and both the boys liked it as well!!  Huge hit in the Sodahl fam!!  I omitted my bun so I didn't use a carb on the meal :)

Makes 6 servings - 1 red, 1 purple, 1 green1 yellow (if you use bun)



2 tablespoons olive oil
3 lb skinless bone-in chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
6 oz can tomato paste
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons cornstarch (or arrowroot powder)
6 whole-grain hamburger buns (I like the Alvarado Street Bakery brand)
1 cored fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
(16-oz) package crinkle-cut carrots (or use baby carrots)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add chicken.  Brown chicken 3 to 4 minutes; place in a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker.

Top chicken with onion.

Whisk together pineapple juice, tomato paste, soy sauce and vinegar; pour over chicken.  Cover and cook on Low 5 to 6 hours; remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with 2 forks.

Stir cornstarch into sauce in slow cooker; increase slow cooker heat to High and cook, uncovered, 30 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.

Spoon chicken onto buns; top with sauce.  Serve pineapple chunks and carrots with sandwiches if using.
