    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or High heat setting 4 to 6 hours. Once chicken is cooked through and sauce thickened, remove chicken; shred with 2 forks. Return chicken to sauce, and turn heat to High. Cook, uncovered, 25 to 30 minutes or until sauce is thickened. If sauce gets too thick, add the reserved pineapple juice from the can.

    Serve warm over a bed of rice with a side of pineapple salsa, if desired, and chopped fresh cilantro.
