Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Over Rice

I’ve made this hawaiian bbq chicken before. It’s delicious, and easy, and it’s got just the perfect combination of sweet and tangy flavors.

I edited the recipe ever so slightly from last time, with the same ingredients, but there are slightly different amounts and they are added at slightly different times now to keep the chicken mixture from being too watery.

    it sounds yummy!

  4. Question on step 5: where you shred the chicken and add additional BBQ sauce, teriyaki sauce and pineapple to the crockpot. Do you jus use the Juice from what was left in the crockpot.

    1. In step 4 I drained most of the liquid out of the crock pot. The reason I don’t use that juice is because it is very watery and not very flavorful after cooking for so many hours!

  5. Are you calling for boneless breasts or bone in? This sounds delicious and I only need to add the teriyaki sauce to the grocery list to add to the menu to make.

    1. Boneless chicken breasts, though really if you prefer bone in I’m sure it would cook fine, just might be harder to shred

      1. I figured it was boneless but wanted to be sure. And bone in are not hard to shred either.

    Sounds amazing! Step #6 says “lots of sauce”. Do you recommend topping with BBQ or Teriyaki? Or is there enough in the crockpot and that’s what you use??

    1. You drain the juices from the crockpot cause its very watery, but then you add BBQ and teriyaki back in with the chicken and there should be a lot to go over the rice too!

    I made a variation of this a couple weeks ago – Just BBQ sauce, no teriyaki. Drained the pineapple. It wasn’t watery at all. (Used a big bottle of bbq sauce.) It was super easy!!

    1. Sounds delicious with just the pineapple and bbq. Glad you liked it too!

  8. What kind of teriyaki sauce do you use?

    1. I have used a couple different brands of teriyaki sauce for this recipe. Most recently-, Lawry’s
