Pin a Day: Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken

I try to use my crock pot at least once a week to create leftovers for Mike for nights I have to work.  It's also great to use when I go pick him up from work because dinner is ready when we get home.  This past Wednesay, I tried this recipe for Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken.   It sounded yummy and promised to be very easy so I thought I'd give it a shot.  I was running all over Wednesday so I almost forgot to make it.  Around 12-12:30ish, I put my can of pineapple in the crock pot, added my frozen chicken tenderloins, and covered it with the mixture of soy sauce and brown sugar.  I turned my crock pot on low and went about my day.  Mike and I got home at 6:15 and I started the rice on the stove while I pulled out the chicken.  I added some cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up a bit and shredded the chicken. The chicken practically fell apart as I was shredding it.  I added it back to the sauce to soak it up while the rice cooked.  Once the rice was done, we served our food and enjoyed.  It was a great combination of sweet from the pineapple and savory from the soy sauce.  Add some strawberry shortcake beer from Redhorn and I was set for a fabulous evening of catching up on fall tv.  Mike added a bit of hot sauce to his to kick up the heat a bit.  This meal also made great leftovers and probably could be frozen as well.
