DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl combine pineapple juice, orange juice, and 3 tablespoons of the ground ginger.
  • Put 1/2 of the liquid in a large zipper seal bag (or split it in two bags if need be). Reserve rest of liquid in bowl or other covered container.
  • Rinse chicken and pierce with a fork in several places of each breast. Place chicken in zipper bag(s)and refrigerate at least 4 hours to overnight (I prefer overnight).
  • Drain the mandarin oranges and put in container with reserved liquid, cover and marinate for the same amount of time as the chicken.
  • Chop peppers and onion.
  • When ready to cook, place chicken in bottom of crock pot, discard the marinade. Layer the onions and peppers on chicken and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Drain pineapple chunks and add fruit to crock pot. Add UNDRAINED crushed pineapple to crock pot as well as the mandarin oranges WITH the liquid.
  • Set crock pot to HIGH and cook 6-8 hours, depending on when the chicken is done.
  • When ready to serve cook rice according to package directions and serve chicken with sauce over the rice. ENJOY!
