I used about 1/2 lb of baby carrots and added 1 red pepper, sliced and 2 stalks celery cut into 1 inch chunks. I also used about 1 1/2 lbs of chicken tenderloins, threw them in the pot frozen, and cooked it for about 6 hours before adding the cornstarch/water. We like sauce; next time I will double the sauce/seasoning ingredients...adding the juice of the 2nd can of pineapple but not the extra chunks of pineapple. My picky 9 y/o enjoyed this as well, thanks for posting!
