These chicken teriyaki sandwiches are shredded, slow cooked, flavorful, AND topped with a spicy pineapple slaw! Perfect for a family gathering!
Mother's Day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway and a delicious recipe.
Today, I am sharing my recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki Sandwiches with Pineapple Slaw. These sandwiches are so easy to put together, and perfect for family meal. Typically, my family liked to celebrate Mother's Day with a brunch and later an easy meal so that we we can spend time with the kiddos outdoors. These sandwiches work great for a when I need a meal for a crowd.
I start my chicken in a simple sauce of honey, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, and a little hot sauce. I let the chicken slow cook, shred it, and top it with a simple 4 ingredient coleslaw.
Since the winner of the giveaway will win a KitchenAid Classic Series Stand Mixer, I figured this was a perfect time to revisit my favorite chicken shredding method- my stand mixer. I love the use my KitchenAid mixer to shred chicken I find that it is the easiest method, and results in perfectly pulled chicken. I opt to use a paddle attachment, and the chicken shreds so easily!
Check out my post for Instant Pot Cola BBQ Chicken for my video demo of shredding chicken using my stand mixer. If you haven’t started shredding your chicken with your mixer give it a try!
