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.
I sprinkled toasted coconut and toasted pecans on the final dish for more Hawaiian flair!
Delicious and perfectly cooked chicken! I used about half as much chicken as called for in the ingredients with the same amout of the other ingredients for great chicken without a lot of extra sauce. Thanks Kree for sharing this keeper. We will be having this again soon!
very good, i thickened the sauce (personal preference) mild flavor, leftovers reheated well. would make again. thank you for posting
I loved the simplicity of this recipe! I cooked it for 3 hrs in my crockpot and it was just perfect. I had to add a lttle of the the juice from the pineapple as it was starting to stick, but the dish turned out to be delicious. The mandarins melted into the most glorious sauce. We all polished this off quickly!
We had our daughter's family over for dinner and it was a huge success. We LOVED it!!!! I had run out of lemon juice though so I used equal amounts of the pineapple juice from the can and I am glad I did - it was absolutely perfect!
My crock pot took 8-9 hours on low to cook this. It was good. The left overs don't taste so good the next day.
not to our taste but easy to make
This was super easy, and I like that it doesn't take as long to cook as some other CP recipes. I forgot to drain the fruits, so I had WAY too much sauce (not your fault!). I served it with quinoa that I mixed with some chopped water chestnuts, and topped it with some unsalted cashews. Thanks!
