Take-out Tuesday, Sweet and Sour Chicken Sliders with Grilled Pineapple & Peppers

I have a confession to make…  I been a little distracted lately…


I have been taking photos with my camera on a weird setting…


Yikes!!   You’d think I would notice this!


I have a pretty good excuse…


I have spent 36 out of the last 40 days with one or more of my grandchildren underfoot…


I am Blessed I know, and they are so precious……but very exhausting!


So I have edited the you know what out of these photos so I could share them with you

I could have waited and made this again for better photos, but I want you try this recipe now, this week, asap!

It’s perfect for these sizzling temps~


Put boneless, skinless chicken thighs into a slow cooker


Cover with equal parts BBQ sauce and Asian sweet chili sauce*

* reduce the ratio if you want it less spicy.  I am not a fan of a lot of heat and the 50:50 ratio is fine for me~ The sweetness from the pineapple helps too when eaten together

veggie skewers thepaintedapron.com

Make some vegetable skewers with lots of peppers, zucchini and corn.  Add the pineapple to skewers or just grill the rings


If you don’t want to bother with the grill, you can simply roast, broil or saute them…

If you want to keep your kitchen cool, simply serve the peppers and pineapple raw

The chicken will shred by itself after cooking

Pile the chicken onto nice soft toasted buns, like Hawaiian rolls

    Nothing sweeter than taking care of the little ones, but yes, very exhausting! Photos sure make me hungry and what a great and easy recipe. Hope your summer is going great.

    This looks delicious! I will have to give it a try. I am also going to check out your Slow Cooker recipes. I did baked potatoes in the crockpot the other night. They turned out beautifully, although it did take 5 and 1/2 hours on high for 4, not the 4 hours the recipe said.

  5. Debbie says:

    Jenna, the recipe sounds wonderful! Hopefully soon you can relax 🙂 We would love for you to be our MacKenzie-Child’s tote playmate. If I see the bag on sale, I’ll let you know.

  6. Lynn says:

    Sounds like a great sandwich and grilled veggies are always a favorite! All I’ll say is I hope you realized it was OJ before you brewed a cup:@)

    I just made something really similar for my daughter who had the new baby last week. She had found the recipe and wanted me to make it for her. Very addicting!

  8. Mary says:
