A sweet and savory flavor combo with crushed pineapple and spicy BBQ sauce.



Electric Pressure Cooker

  • Add the crushed pineapple, salt, bbq sauce and chicken to the Instant Pot. Cook thawed chicken on high pressure for 12 minutes. (Cook frozen chicken on high pressure for 20 minutes.) Turn the pressure valve to “Vent” to release all of the pressure.
  • Remove the chicken breasts from the pot and place on a plate or cutting board. Shred the chicken using two forks.
  • Remove ⅔ cup of liquid from the pot. (Reserve the liquid for cooking rice.) Return the shredded chicken to pot and stir until well combined.

Crock Pot

  • Add the chicken breasts to a sprayed or lined Crock Pot. Sprinkle with the salt and top with the crushed pineapple and bbq sauce. Add a ½ c. chicken broth or pineapple juice.
  • Cook on low for 4-5 hours. With 30 minutes of cooking time left, shred the chicken using two forks.
  • (If using frozen chicken in the Crock Pot, cook on low for 5-6 hours.)
