Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken – Just 3-Ingredients

With just three ingredients, it doesn’t get much easier than this  Hawaiian  recipe.  The Archer Farms Hawaiin-Style Barbecue Sauce from Target already contains many of the spices that make this tasty such as mango and red pepper, so no added seasoning is necessary.   If you feel like it, you can add onion and green pepper chunks.

3-Ingredient Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

  • Archer Farms Hawaiian-Style Barbecue Sauce
  • 4-6 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 20-oz. can pineapple chunks, drained

Spray your Crock Pot with nonstick cooking spray.  Place chicken breasts on the bottom of the Crock Pot.  Pour the entire bottle of barbecue sauce and can of pineapple chunks over the chicken breasts.   Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours or until chicken pulls apart and shreds easily.

Serve over rice.

      Target is the only store that carries it, Lisa – but any Hawaiian style barbecue sauce will work.

      TOO THIN. it is a great marinade. I think a honey bbq sauce would be better if you cannot find the archer farms brand. I have not tried our target yet, but am planning to.

    Sounds yummy! Do you think you could make sandwiches with it?
    I was thinking about serving it with buns at a party.

  2. Linda says

    I made this for dinner tonight! I added some jerk seasoning since my hubby and I like it spicy. Served on hamburger buns with pickles and extra bbq sauce. Soooo good and easy! Hubby had seconds and requested it again. I will eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

    This looks great! I’m planning to make it at our Luau birthday party. How many does this recipe feed? I’m also thinking of putting it on the small King’s Hawaiian buns instead of rice.

    Had a kick to it. Little spicy for my 5 and 3 year old. If I use just regular BBQ sauce and add honey that might work.

    I didn’t want to make a trip to Target just for barbecue sauce, so used Stubb’s Sweet Heat instead (found at my Kroger’s grocery store in Texas). The recipe tastes great with it and yes, spicy…which is what I expected. Kroger’s has their own brand of Hawaiian Barbecue sauce and I also spotted a Hawaiian marinade sauce, but chose the sauce I used because unlike those, Stubb’s does not contain corn syrup nor artificial ingredients.

    • Kimberly Danger says

      That’s a great tip! I’m not sure if I’ve seen Stubb’s Sweet Heat where we live (MN) but I’ll look for it the next time I’m at the grocery store.

    I’m in Canada couldn’t find any of the suggested BBQ sauces. Simply used regular BBQ sauce (tony Roma’s) and thickened with a little cornstarch and cold water when it started to thin out in the crock pot

    I made this with regular BBQ sauce that I had stocked in my pantry (Sweet Baby Ray’s) and it was fantastic. So good! thanks for this easy recipe.

    I am so confused, these are on the 21 day fix recipes but on several of the recipes the containers it equals are not included. That is why I came here, to find recipes that had the containers listed.

  9. Nan says

    I have not tried the recipe yet, but today, I found Sweet Baby Ray’s “new” Hawaiian Barbeque sauce at Walmart. I am going to try this recipe soon.

  10. Pat says

    Being diabetic I use only 1/2 of the Hawaiian barbecue sauce. Still very good! Not a rice fan I usually eat on chow mein noodles.

  11. Teresa Fallis says

    Are these questions still being answered?

    How many oz of bbq sauce does one use in this recipe?

    What if I strained most of the pineapple juice from the chunks, do I add more bbq sauce or run to the store and grab a small can of pineapple juice?

    I am attempting this with a honey BBQ sauce like what was mentioned in another comment, hope it turns out good I am excited to try.
