Hawaiian pulled BBQ chicken

Add to crock pot in this order

2 lbs frozen chicken breast or boneless skinless thighs
1 large diced onion
1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple (if you like your sauce sweet don’t drain, if you like it more savory drain pineapple first)
1 18-20 oz bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Cook 7-8 hours on low heat. Remove chicken after 8 hours and shred, place back into crock pot for the chicken to soak up all the yummy sauce with lid off, on high, to allow the sauce to thicken a little. Cook for 10-20 minutes more and then serve on a roll or bun. Super easy and super GOOD!

Ingard made Andrea’s recipe for her family. Here are all the ingredients.

She found this one SUPER easy, especially since it required only a knife and cutting board~ the can had a pull top.

Here are all the ingredients in the crock pot just as Andrea suggested.

The plated the Hawaiian pulled BBQ chicken was served with Coconut rice and sauteed summer vegetables.

It is sweet but very tender and aromatic!


This is a final recipe from Ingard’s kitchen

Crockpot Pot Roast

 Ingredients:  About 2lbs Chuck Roast (I cut out some of those HUGE fat veins ~ I tried this with a London Broil and it was too lean)

Peeled Potatoes – (enough to cover the bottom of the crock pot~ I used about 14)

Chopped Onion

Minced garlic (I really like garlic so I used 4-5 cloves)

Season salt


1/4 – 1/2 cup water for the bottom of the crock pot

Line the bottom of the crock pot with the peeled potatoes, put a little season salt on these.

Braise your seasoned salted meat to brown it, place the braised meat on top of the potato lined crock pot

add chopped onion, garlic and season salt again.

The carrots can be under the braised meat or on top makes little difference.

Set the crock pot on HIGH for 4-6 hours OR LOW for 7-8 hours

Here is the plated roast, see the potato is NOT dissolved into nothing. There were a few that had crumbled.

The meat was SUPER tender, the potato and carrots were flavorful!
