Take-out Tuesday, BBQ Chicken Tacos with Broccoli Pineapple Slaw


I have been using Shipt grocery delivery at the beach house

even before Covid 19 because it is so convenient

I wanted to make something easy for the boys supper time arrival last Thursday,

they love tacos, they love BBQ, they love pineapple…




 BBQ chicken in the slow cooker would be perfect for a taco dinner!

I decided to make BBQ Chicken tacos topped with a fruit filled slaw





Put the chicken into a sprayed slow cooker and cover with BBQ sauce

Cook on high 3-4 hours {low 6-8}

Your chicken will be so tender you can shred it with 2 forks





I wanted to make Pineapple Coleslaw from Happier Than a Pig in Mud

But when my shopper text me that the coleslaw mix on my list wasn’t available,

she suggested broccoli slaw



Hmmm…. that would actually be even better!

I could make a variation of one of our favorites

Crazy Good Broccoli Salad





This slaw starts with Broccoli Slaw mix in a bag

and gets the irresistible addition of fresh pineapple,

red grapes, bacon and cheese





I dressed the slaw with a dash of rice vinegar and seasoned it with salt & pepper





Then I decided to add just a touch of honey mustard to bind it together





With all the goodies this slaw has in it, even picky eaters won’t notice the broccoli!






I lightly fried flour tortillas in a scant about of olive oil and butter

to use as the taco shell





This meal is also super easy because everyone can help themselves

and build their own taco





Pile shredded BBQ chicken on a tortilla

Top with slaw





Fold it over and dinner is ready!

  2. Jenna, this looks like a perfect summertime lunch or dinner. The broccoli-pineapple slaw is the finishing touch for the BBQ chicken. I know your guys enjoyed.

    The weather here is hot and muggy with daily rain. Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday!


    • A new summer favorite, it was gobbled up! I got a video from my son yesterday of the sheets of rain coming off our roof, wow! The weather has been really nice here, hot but breezy, hope it holds through the 4th!

    That taco looks amazing! And pineapple…Oh I do love me some pineapple. Happy Tuesday. Hugs and blessings, Cindy


  4. That salad looks really good and so simple. Very refreshing in the summer. I’ll have to add the broccoli slaw, pineapple and grapes to my list. Thanks for this one! (Good idea on the tacos. The lazy of us could jazz up rotisserie chicken and enjoy!)
