Slow cooker recipes allow for all the hard work to be done during the day while you work or do other things. Allowing for some prep time in the morning to get the chicken ready makes this slow cooker recipe for summer go a long way.
Start by preparing the sauce that the chicken will marinate in while it’s in the slow cooker. The Hawaiian BBQ sauce consists of ingredients you might already have on hand:

- Coconut aminos give these chicken tacos umami.
- Apple cider vinegar helps to tenderise the chicken with its acidity.
- Add in additional Vital Proteins® Collagen Peptides for a boost of collagen.
