In this colorful dish, exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple beautifully complement the chicken and lend a pleasant hint of sweetness that’s balanced by a bit of soy sauce. —Christina Aho, Naples, Florida

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 cups chopped peeled mangoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  1. Place chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Top with mangoes, onion, red pepper and garlic. In a small bowl, combine the pineapple juice, orange juice, soy sauce, chili sauce and pepper; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender.
