bbq hawaiian chicken: "slow cooker sundays"

slow cooker sundays:
bbq hawaiian chicken
2 1/2 hours cook time

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 green bell peppers
1 red onion
1 pineapple
honey bbq sauce
tony chachere's creole seasoning
zesty table blend seasoning

cut the skin off the pineapple and dice.  put into a large bowl, add a little salt and stir.  dice bell peppers and red onion.  add to pineapple.  pour most of the bbq sauce into bowl.  add 1/2 cup of water, small amount of honey, zesty table blend, and tony's.  stir together, add chicken and marinate for an hour or so.

slow cooker:
remove chicken and veggies from marinade and place in bottom of slow cooker (leave juice in bowl.)  season chicken again and drizzle remaining bbq sauce over chicken.  pour marinade into slow cooker and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours. 

remove and serve when ready!

asian chicken tacos

i reheated the chicken and shredded it by pulling it apart with 2 forks, super easy.  the ingredients i used in the tacos were chicken, pinapple, asian coleslaw and cilantro.

coleslaw kit (i made my own dressing)
greek yogurt (non fat)
1 splenda packet
juice from 1 lime
asian sesame dressing

i didn't really proportion this out.  i just made the dressing by trial and error.  add a little, taste, add, repeat...until you like it.  add to cabbage mix and slap it on the taco...delish!

the chicken came out sooo juicy and tender.  loved this one!  next time i might try this without marinading it before and see how that turns out. 
what made this slow cooker sunday dish even better...
