Day 6: Fail and Day 7: Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

I apologize for slacking the past two days; my husband and I were soaking up our time together before he gets busy with training and heads down south for a month. I’m sure you understand!

We went out to dinner for a friends birthday last night, so I obviously didn’t have a chance to cook dinner. But with all the recipes I’ve been dying to try on Pinterest, I knew there was something I could attempt during the day!

I repinned a recipe where dried strawberries are supposed to taste better than Twizzlers. Better than Twizzlers? Impossible. That was my go to when I was pregnant with my son (before I got gestational diabetes) and nothing is better than Twizzlers.

Strawberries, salt, and pepper do NOT equal Twizzlers in my opinion!

Maybe you’ll enjoy them better than I did but honestly, not for me.

Today I made Hawaiian BBQ Chicken… Sort of. I didn’t feel like going to Target to get the special BBQ sauce they recommend you use, so I opted for a cheaper honey BBQ sauce I found at the grocery store.

Chicken, BBQ sauce, and pineapple…that’s it! 
Add chicken (frozen or thawed, bottle of BBQ sauce, and can of drained pineapple
Cook 2-3 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low, shred and serve!

It was still a hit, it was super easy (as is any crockpot recipe) and it will definitely be on my repeat dinner list.

Served with white rice

Hopefully I’ll be back on track tomorrow with posting my recipes on time…thanks for your patience and understanding! One week of recipes down, one week to go! Hope you are enjoying this as much as I am 🙂

Dried Strawberries:

1.Halve or quarter the strawberries, depending on their size; place on a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper;

2. Dry in the oven for three hours at 100° C / 210° F.

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken:

4-6 Boneless Chicken Breasts (I thawed mine but that’s up to you!)
1 Bottle Archer Farms Hawaiian Style Barbecue Sauce (from Target)
1 20 oz. can Pineapple Chunks, drained

Spray the inside of your crock pot with cooking spray for an easy cleanup!  Place frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot and cover with sauce.  Empty can of drained pineapple chunks on top.  Cook on High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-6 hours.  Shred chicken with two forks while still in the crock pot so the chicken will be well coated with sauce.  Serve over rice.
