All of these amazing products are things that bring the taste of Hawaii right into your home. Speaking of that? Have you tried the new King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Sauce and the Jalapeno Rolls? My gracious. Just wait till you do!
When they asked me to participate in Hawaiian Foods week I jumped at the chance – maybe for selfish reasons. Maybe. Mine and Heather’s 10th Anniversary is coming up in a few months and as we’ve been desperately trying to plan a vacation for the two if us, Hawaii keeps making it to the top of the list. Granted, the list isn’t crazy long, but we keep getting drawn back to Hawaii. Neither of us have been, we both are really intrigued by the laid back culture and amazing food we keep hearing about. Being a part of this special week just seemed like a perfect fit and a great opportunity to learn more about this cluster of islands.

So many of the foods we take for granted are a huge part of that aloha state of mind! Did you know that many of the McDonald’s in Hawaii serve SPAM® at breakfast?
Now that I’ve got your mind dreaming of the tropics, let me give you something to set your mouth to watering too…
These Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken Sliders are simply amazing. Simply, awesomely, amazing. They are so easy and are just jam packed with flavor. You can also serve the chicken over rice if making it into a slider isn’t your thing. But that sweet and tangy chicken between a King’s Hawaiian Roll – especially those new Jalapeno Rolls – is simply divine!
Start by putting 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast into your slow cooker.
Top with one bottle of the King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Sauce.
Then pour in a can of drained, cubed Dole Pineapple Slices. Pop the lid on and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. I generally like to cook my chicken in the slow cooker for about 4 hours. Cooking it too long makes it mushy.
Once the chicken is done, remove the chicken from the slow cooker. Add 2 tablespoons of plain white vinegar to the sauce and stir well.
Allow the chicken to cool and then shred it using two forks.
Return the chicken to the slow cooker and stir to combine with the sauce.
Doesn’t that look simply amazing? It’s sweet for sure, but adding the vinegar at the very end balances it out and gives it a great flavor. Serve the chicken on the King’s Hawaiian Rolls or over rice, if you prefer. Y’all enjoy!
