This is a modified version of a recipe I found on The spices are warming but not hot and the allspice really does work nicely with the ginger. I really like pineapple so Core plus 1 point per recipe for the cornstarch

It was delicious. I used chicken legs and after 6 hours, it was tender and cooked through. I didn't cut them. I used chicken broth. At the end, I decided to not add green bell pepper and water chestnuts cause we had a big day out at the zoo. The next day, we ate the leftovers with my mother and she likes it a lot. Thanks Toni :)

This meal was good. We made it for a group of people and some loved it. We liked it but it wasn't our favorite.

This was easy and yummy! I have a rather large crockpot, and discovered I needed at least twice as much water/broth as called for to stop the chicken from burning.
