I was just coming to post this, since I just finished popping it into the crockpot for tonight's dinner. I love this recipe! It is so fast and easy, and just delicious when done. Super tender, too. I never bother to brown the chicken (and so never use the oil), and I am allergic to pineapple, so I sub 1/4 c. apple juice for the liquid in the can of pineapple and don't bother with any fruit. Served over rice, this is a terrific meal. I believe the recipe originally came from Taste of Home - that's where I got my copy, I think.
EXCELLENT! Fast and delicious...who could ask for more? I agree with the person who said that they added salt afterwards...it needed just a little salt with the sweet. My kids loved it, the hubby loved it and it kept me from being in the kitchen too long so A+ from me!
I doubled the recipe, served it with a fancy rice side dish and a waldorf salad. Got rave reviews.
