This weekend, I was flipping through my recipe pile and came across this recipe. I was looking for something new to use boneless, skinless chicken breast (a staple in our house) for. I really liked the combination of the garlic, fresh ginger (which I LOVE) and soy sauce. Plus, it utilized the slow cooker — even better! I must be on a slow cooker kick this week…this is the second recipe I’ve made using this trusted appliance! It’s just easy and convenient. So, why not?!?!
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup lite soy sauce
3 Tbsp ketchup
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp fresh ginger root, minced
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1-20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained with juice reserved
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water
Combine first 5 ingredients in slow cooker. Add chicken and reserved pineapple juice. Cover and cook 4 hours on high. Stir in pineapple tidbits just before serving.
Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Remove chicken from slow cooker. Whisk the cornstarch into the sauce in the slow cooker to thicken. Serve sauce over the chicken.
Is it a keeper?
YES! This recipe is very easy and very good! I mixed the ingredients to the sauce together earlier in the week and stored them in the fridge. Then when I was ready to make the dish, I just added it to the slow cooker. I love dished that I can pre-assemble a few days in advance!
I served the chicken and the sweet Asian inspired sauce over brown rice with a side of broccoli. I will definitely be making this again. And again. And again!
