  1. Sprinkle the celery and green onions into the bottom of a slow cooker; place the turkey chunks on top. Combine the pineapple juice, sweet chile sauce, vinegar, water, beef bouillon, and garlic powder; pour over the turkey. Place the pineapple rings on the turkey chunks.
  2. Cook on Low until the turkey pulls apart easily, 6 to 7 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, make the coleslaw by stirring the mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, and onion together in a mixing bowl. Add the cabbage and Cheddar cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover, and refrigerate while the turkey cooks.
  4. Once the turkey is tender, shred using two forks. Pile some of the shredded turkey and a pineapple ring onto a Kaiser roll; top with coleslaw to serve.

Very flavorful. May be too sweet for some with the pineapple, so I added a few dashes of chipotle hot sauce to give it a touch of heat.

I enjoed this sandwich. I left out the boullion because I didn't have any and I served this in a whole wheat tortilla instead of a roll. The only thing I felt was missing some heat. To counteract the sweetness of the pineapple I added a small bit of cayenne. I also would have liked a bit more flavor from the sweet chili saice since I love that stuff. next time I'll add a drizzle of that to my wraps.

I loved this as a nice change from BBQ or pulled chicken. I did make a few tiny changes - no green onions on hand, so I used vidalia slices, and my sweet chili sauce is actually pretty sweet, so I added another splash of vinegar and a few dashes of dried red pepper flakes to add the kick. I liked the coleslaw with the cheese in it, but for the future might not top the sandwich with another pineapple ring - a tad to sweet for me and made the bread a bit soggy. I will make this again!
