Slow Cooker Paleo Hawaiian BBQ Chicken is an easy dish that they whole family can enjoy. We liked the tang that the BBQ sauce added to the dish and the pineapple was a delicious sweet addition to this recipe You could serve this with riced cauliflower or if you are not eating Paleo you could serve it with traditional white or brown rice too.
My family is loving this Copycat Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice recipe that I make at home. In fact if you are not eating Paleo I would suggest trying it. If you are eating Paleo then cauliflower rice is a great and yummy option! You can also substitute any BBQ sauce brand that you like. I choose this Tessemae's because it is Paleo and Whole 30 approved. If you are on Whole 30 just omit the honey to be compliant.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. You can adjust this recipe to feed your family using 4-6 pieces of meat. I personally use 4 to feed my family of 3 with a leftovers for lunch the next day. I use 2 lbs of chicken in my recipe but you can adjust between 4-6 cuts of chicken.
I hope you enjoy this Slow Cooker Paleo Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Recipe as much as we did. It is an easy freezer meal the whole family will love.
