a recipe I made today for a luau I was hosting . This recipe calls for 6 chicken breast, but I cut the up, and served them as appitizers. It was a hit.This recipe is for whole chicken breast.

  1. Place chicken breasts in oblong slow cooker sprayed with vegetable cooking spray and sprinkle with a dash of salt if desired.
  2. Place pineapple slices over chicken.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine pineapple juice, brown sugar,lemon juice, ginger, cornstarch, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and black pepper, until cornstarch mixes with liquids.
  4. Pour over chicken breasts.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  6. Hot buttered rice is a compliment to this dish.

The sauce was good, but the chicken didn't absorb a lot of the flavor of the sauce. I cooked it on high for about 3 hours. We served it with rice as suggested. The next day, we put the leftovers on buns with barbecue sauce and pineapple slices. I want to try this recipe again cooking it on low, that might help with the flavor of the chicken! Thanks weekend cooker!

I was surprised how good this was. I used crushed pineapple & left out the cornstarch. After the chicken was done & put the instant rice in the sauce to soak it up. Yum! Made for PRMR Tag.

I made a couple of small changes: using diced fresh ginger instead of the powdered, 1 half small chopped onion and added 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. It still seemed to be lacking something, Used low sodium soy sauce so maybe that was part of it. I cooked on low 6 hours and ended up shredding the chicken and mixing it all together. It was OK but not sure I would make again.
