Ingredients
1 lb Boneless skinless chicken breasts (fresh or frozen)
1 (20 oz) can Diced pineapple
Juice of medium Lime (or 1-2 tbs)
1/4 cup Soy sauce
1 tbs Low sugar ketchup (or 1 tbs rice wine vinegar)
1 tbs Minced garlic (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
1/4 cup Honey (or sweetener of choice to taste)
1 1/2 tbs Cornstarch or arrowroot powder (dissolved in 2 tbs cold water)

Optional for Serving:
8 Corn or whole grain tortillas for serving
2 cups Shredded cabbage or coleslaw mixture
Juice of medium Lime

Directions

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 4-6 Hours.

Pour juice from canned pineapple into the crockpot, (save the pineapple for later in the fridge). Add chicken and everything else to the crockpot, (except for the cornstarch/arrowroot powder). Cover and cook for 8 hours on low, or 4 hours on high.

After cooking, remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and place in a small bowl. Shred chicken with two forks. Meanwhile, add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce in the crockpot, and stir to combine. Turn heat up to high, and add chicken back to crockpot, followed by the pineapple. Let sauce thicken for about 5 minutes, and stir just before serving. Serve over tortillas or a bed of lettuce if desired with additional toppings if desired. Enjoy!
