Easy and yummy, added a dash of ground ginger a whole clove of garlic and a tablespoon of rice vinegar. Also added the cornstarch to some of the sauce with whisk and then added back before cooking was done it thickened up beautifully.
Soooo yummy! And with ingredients I usually have on hand. I added pineapple tidbits from the can in addition to the juice. I, too, had to transfer to a saucepan to thicken the sauce. Husband and toddler liked it!
This was good. My teenager LOVED it. The chicken was fork-tender. I'd like a little bit more zip in the sauce, but all in all, definitely a keeper.
Great Recipe. I made it exactly like the recipe and it was good enough for company. We loved the sliced scallions that added the crunch on the top. Will make again for sure!
I will make this next time with chicken breasts but that's just my prefernce. I made this for my boyfriend and family and everyone loved it.
I really loved this recipe. While I normally love a lot of spice and more flavor in my dishes, I thought this simple sauce was delicious. I made it as written but also stir-fried some veggies (onion, red bell pepper, carrot and celery and some fresh pineapple chunks) and thickened some of the sauce in with them to serve with the rice and chicken. The sauce didn't over-power anything but instead let the flavor of the chicken, rice and vegetables come through but added a nice moist, sweetness. Reminded me of the simple stir-fry dishes that were served to my mission team while we were in Cambodia. Will definitely make again.
Very tasty and SO easy! Does anyone know if the total calories for this recipe counts the 1/2 cup of cooked rice?
I thought this was very good and easy. I cut the skin off the thighs but didn't bother deboning. I used an individual serving cup of fruit cocktail in place of the pineapple juice to make it a little more interesting. I also added a splash of white wine vinegar and a teaspoon of spicy chili sauce to give it more depth of flavor. Turned out very good! Served with jasmine rice.
Just made this for dinner tonight, and it was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, with one exception. At the end I had to transfer the sauce to a small pan on the stove and bring it to a boil to thicken it. It wouldn't thicken in my crockpot, but did in no time on the stove. The sauce is so good and the thighs were tender. I like another reviewer's idea about adding pineapple chunks--will do that next time. I never worked with thighs before, and they were a lot of work to get all the fat off. Not sure if breasts would be as tasty, but might be worth a try. This is definitely a keeper.
We loved this dish! It is a little work in the beginning, unlike other slow cooker recipes of just dumping everything in and letting her rip, but worth it. The only change I made was adding a dash of red pepper flakes. Next time I think I'll add a little sambal oelek before deglazing the pan. Looking forward to making it again soon. Oh, might try with breasts just to see the difference. Thighs are delicious but sometimes I don't have the extra 20 minutes to take the extra fat off of them. Wish they came a little cleaner!
Was browsing my recipe file looking to try something new and easy for chicken. Sooo glad I decided on this one. There was no chopping and all ingredients are staples in my cupboard. I used skinned chicken legs and a big can of pineapple chunks. I doubled the soy sauce and brown sugar then baked it at 350 for a little over an hour. The chicken was falling off the bone! I finished the sauce on top of the stove doubling the cornstarch.
Excellent little recipe. I went ahead and made a couple of improvements: first, I doubled the recipe so we could enjoy this all week. I used double the amount of cornstarch the recipe calls for as I like a thicker sauce. Finally but most importantly, I pan-charred two cups of cut pineapple on the stovetop to add to the sauce. Delicious! Next time I might also try adding blackened jalepeno and red onion in place of the green onion.
So good! Followed recipe exactly, and it came out delicious. Super-tender and juicy chicken.
This was delicious! My kids loved it (and we are not a big crock pot family). The sauce was a bit thin, but tasted great - I'm not sure I really needed to add the water with the cornstarch or maybe it needed extra cornstarch to thicken. The meat was very tender and flavorful! Super easy - will definitely add this to our weeknight dinner menu.
This was very good and easy to make. Served with jasmine rice cooked in microwave.
Made this tonight and will put it into regular rotation. Didn't have chicken so used pork chops. Didn't have pineapple juice, used apple. Added a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper for some zip....totally good enough for company!
Delicious. I bought three bags of steam fresh chinese veggies, tossed it all (w/ the sauce which I added a little more water making more of it) into a big bowl together. Also the thighs are so tender you can shred it w/ a fork. totally recommend.
I made this dish last night w/o the use of the crock pot. Followed directins only using the stove top, simmered for 1.5 hours and then served. It was delicious and very easy to make.
Delicious, tender chicken perfect for a weeknight!
