EZ Island Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Introduction

Inspired by pulled pork sandwiches, this low cal version was something I invented one day with a pineapple base and a mild, barbecued flavor. Inspired by pulled pork sandwiches, this low cal version was something I invented one day with a pineapple base and a mild, barbecued flavor.

Directions

Makes 8 sloppy joe style sandwiches. ***
Place cut up chicken meat into crock pot along with crushed pineapple, tomato sauce, pineapple juice, smoke flavor, and brown sugar to cover meat. Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours, turn down to low and continue cooking. Remove chicken parts and using two forks, tear chunks into shreds in a separate bowl and set aside. Mix cornstarch with 1/4 cup cool water and stir in large sauce pan. Add some of the liquid from the crockpot and heat to simmer to thicken sauce. Place chicken back into remaining sauce in crockpot and stir to get the juice into the meat. Then combine with thickened sauce in pan and heat through stirring occasionally, allowing the chicken to become saturated in flavor for 30-45 minutes. Serve on toasted hamburg buns (I buy brands that are approx 110 calories each.) Excellent served with coleslaw made with pineapple vinegar.
