Crock Pot Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Two Ways

 

As the semester comes to an end I’m looking forward to more days of actually being able to make involved meals instead of quick stuff for the nights when I’m in class past 8 p.m.  But as for now, I’m still making my weekly slow cooker meal to make into several meals. Next semester I have three classes instead of two classes in the evening, so that’s going to be even worse.

But then I’ll be done with law school.

This chicken was really good. When I was grocery shopping I found this Hawaiian flavored teriyaki marinade. I decided it would be the perfect accompaniment to my slow cooker meal for the week.

The second night of chicken was made into pita mini pizzas. Two favorite different and delicious dishes!

DAY 1: Crock Pot Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken

Ingredients
4 boneless chicken breasts, defrosted
1 bottle of Hawaiian teriyaki marinade
20 oz can crushed pineapple

Directions

1. Place your chicken into the crock pot and cover with the teriyaki. Pour the pineapple on top. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3.

2. Once the chicken is done, shred. Serve over rice.

DAY 2: Hawaiian Chicken Pita Mini Pizzas

Ingredients
leftover crock pot Hawaiian teriyaki chicken
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1 tomato, sliced
1/4 cup pizza sauce
2 pitas

Directions

1. Smear 1/2 the pizza sauce on each pita. Cover with shredded cheese. Then divide the chicken and tomatoes evenly between the pitas and layer on top of the cheese.

2. Place the pitas on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
