Sweet pineapple and salty soy sauce season a flavorful chicken dish from Carol Gillespie in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. “I adapted the recipe for my crock pot because it's so much easier to do the preparation hours in advance, then let it simmer all day,”” Carol explains.

MY REVIEW

"My Mom is handicapped, elderly and cannot get out much anymore. Finding new things to eat that are appealing to her is a tedious task. I made this for her (and me). She and I loved it! Anything that makes my Mom want seconds, at her age, is a 5 star . I did cube the chicken before frying to allow it to cook quicker and make it easier for my mother to handle. Great recipe!!"

"For some reason my chicken was dry too. Perhaps I cooked it to long when I was browning it. Next time I think I will avoid that step. Great flavor and no complained. Will make it again."

"This is a little sweet as others stated, but so good! I have made it many times since first published, even for a Christmas buffet. You can sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder to give a little more balance to the sweetness of this dish, I too serve it with white rice. My super picky little boy loves this chicken, it is the only meat he doesn't put ketchup on! I often shred the leftover chicken and we have pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches the next day."
