Woohoo you GUYS Ā we made it to Friday!

Did this feel like the longest week ever for anyone else?

I swear it’s the nice, warm, sunshiney, weather – literally makes me motivated to do absolutely nothing except go to the swimming pool!

In other news – new crockpot recipe for you today!

I like putting a new, really easy, slow cooker recipe out on Friday.

It makes me feel like I’m helping y’all out with your dinner plans for next week.

Taking some of the foot work out of it for you?

So, this recipe is pretty much as easy as it sounds a looks.

Only five ingredients – but man oh man it produces some amazing sweet and tangy flavor!

I like to use Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce – the honey BBQ flavor, feel free to use your favorite.

The chicken comes out tender and easy to shred and honestly this is good enough to eat by itself, but we usually make it a full meal and serve with some rice.

Leftovers (if you have any) are great on mixed greens for a light lunch the next day!

I’d call this “finger lickin’ good” because that’s what BBQ always makes me think of – BUT, I imagine you’re a civilized person and will eat your chicken with a fork.

If not, no judgement from this girl.

While I love this for it simplicity year round, it’s really a summer dinner winner for me.

Those flavors of tangy barbecue sauce and sweet pineapple just scream SUMMER at me!

It’s also the fact that it’s all done in the crockpot and I don’t have to be hot and miserable while whipping up some dinner for my family.

    This is absolutely the easiest, most delicious crock pot meal I have ever made! The family loved it and I will be making this again soon! This may sound strange but my sons made fried egg sandwiches and put some of the chicken on them and said it was delicious!!

    Was good! Will make again. My only complaint is the recipe didn’t say whether to drain the pineapple or not, was good regardless. I found in the comments that it said to drain, but by then it was too late, still tasted good though. I added sriacha for a little kick. Next time I might add jalapeƱos. And I’ll probably drain the juice, or save the juice see which way i like better. I actually made mine like a quesadilla with pepper jack cheesw, and sour cream which was good was differentšŸ˜Š But I’ll try next time with coconut rice, maybe another time on a bun.
