Pulled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I love more than anything when I come across a new recipe that involves the crock pot! Seriously, you throw a couple of ingredients into a large pot, plug it in, turn the heat to low, and VOILA! Your meal is ready for you and you didn't have to slave in the kitchen for hours over it either.  I saw this recipe on Tasty Kitchen the other day and knew at once that was going to be our dinner the next day.  I made just a few changes to the recipe that I feel added just a bit more flavor. That is the recipe you will find below but if you would like the original click here.

2-3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (not frozen)
1 can of Pineapple tid-bits (reserve 1/2 cup of the juice)
1 small onion (diced)
1 clove of garlic minced
1 bottle of BBQ sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ, but you can use whatever flavor you would like)
1 Tbsp. Honey
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 tsp. Ground black pepper

Place your thawed chicken breasts into the crock pot.  Dice the onion and place on top of the chicken. Next layer the pineapple over the onion.  In a bowl, combine the bbq sauce, garlic, pepper, honey, and juice and pour over the chicken. Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Serve on toasted buns.
