TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained

"I increased the recipe by 2.5 and used a 20 oz can pineapple, used celery in place of the green peppers (my family doesn't like them) and regular soy sauce and they came out delicious. I did have to allow a little extra cooking time for them to get tender. Wondering how they'd do cooked in the slow cooker?"
