The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 52

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  I’m feeling a little better today, but I still went for a quick and easy slow cooker recipe…

Hawaiian Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 can sliced pineapple IN JUICE

3 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 Tbsp)

3 slices ginger (or 1/4 tsp ground ginger)

1/4 Cup soy sauce

1/2 Tsp salt

1/2 Tsp pepper

2 Tsp honey

1/8 Cup orange juice

Place pineapple rings in the bottom of the crock pot.  Rinse and trim chicken breasts and place on top of pineapple rings.  Mix pineapple juice from can, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, honey, orange juice, salt and pepper in small bowl, pour over chicken.  If chicken is not covered, add chicken broth JUST until chicken breasts are covered.  Cover and cook on LOW 7-8 hours.

Serve 1 chicken breast and 2-3 pineapple rings over rice.

The recipe didn’t call for a sauce, but I would think a little of the juices from the pot mixed with some flour or cornstarch would make a good sauce, and chicken in a crock pot it notoriously dry, so this really could have used a sauce!  I’ll have to remember that next time…

Anyway, it was good, but not great.  Needs a little tweaking I think.  I’ll let you know if/when I give it another shot!

So, until next time, eat well, love well, live well!!
