This is a simple and fantastic recipe I got from sherr1 on the IBS message boards at www.helpforibs.com. If you're looking for something with a zing, this isn't it. It has a subtle but deliciously fruity flavor. The sauce is wonderful over white rice!
- 2 -3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 (16 ounce) can pineapple slices, drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
- 1⁄4 cup cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- Combine all ingredients in the crock pot.
- Stir well.
- Cover and cook for 4-5 hours on low or 2-3 hours on high.
- Serve with steamed rice.
very good, i thickened the sauce (personal preference) mild flavor, leftovers reheated well. would make again. thank you for posting
As noted in the description, this is not a zingy recipe. This was super easy to prepare. I mixed the dry ingredients then added the juice of the pineapple to it because I was concerned the cornstarch would be clumpy. This did not change the flavor, but next time I will follow the recipe as it would have clung to the chicken differently. My youngest 2 boys loved it. my eldest decided he does not like cooked pineapple, and I overcooked as we did not get to dinner until 2 hours later than usual. The oranges broke up more than I expected - maybe because I overcooked. We had a lot leftover. On day 2, I added teriyaki sauce and this went from okay to awesome for my family including DH. Some asian chile sauce on the side also bumped up the zing for hubby. Overall, this might not make weekly rotation, but will be a repeat over this fall and winter.
not to our taste but easy to make
