Slow Cooked Hawaiian Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Posted Dec 03 2012 12:03am

As I have said before in my blog, I don't eat a whole heck of a lot of grains, but I will have occasional quality bread, oatmeal, and Whole Foods Pizza, and I just don't see myself at this point going over to grain-free and gluten free.

Most importantly, I am trying to think outside the box with this whole "grain-free" thing, and I use papaya enzymes to digest gluten and  meat. That allows me to enjoy some "quality" grains here and there.

Slow Cooked Hawaiian Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

* 3 pounds pasture raised chicken (many prefer breasts, but I prefer dark meat, or a mix, because dark meat adds to flavor, and healthy fat doesn't make you fat , and is not unhealthy when derived from quality sources)

* 1 organic onion, peeled and cut into chunks
* @ 6 ounces (or more depending on preference)  fresh organic pineapple chunks
* Pink Himalayan Salt And Organic Coarse Ground Black Pepper

* @18-20 oz BBQ sauce and more for topping, (I am not happy with any BBQ Sauces available at even health food stores, my BBQ sauce recipe is here )

* Quality rolls (every is a different level with their breads, I long for the day I can make my brick oven in my outdoor dream kitchen , my current favorite breads are Sami's Bakery Millet and Flax Rolls , and Sami's Bakery Millet and Flax Pumpkin Bread


1. Season Chicken (optional, some people don't season much in a slow cooker), and place chicken in slow cooker. Top with onions, then pineapple, then pour the whole 18-20 oz  of BBQ sauce over the whole thing.
2. Cook on low setting for 8-10 hours. About an hour before it is done, carefully remove chicken from crockpot, shred it, and then return it to the cooker and stir so it can absorb some of the sauce as it finishes.
3. Serve on quality rolls with extra BBQ sauce on the side.
