Pineapple Chicken over Rice
2 lbs chicken legs, skin removed
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, cut into coins
2 celery sticks, cut into 1/2 inch diagonally slices
1 can pineapple tidbits, reserve the juice
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp grounder ginger
1/4 tsp salt
Place drumsticks on bottom of crockpot.
Add sliced veggies & pineapple tidbits.
Mix in remaining ingredients in small saucepan with reserved pineapple juice. Heat on medium and stir till well blended and hot. Pour into crockpot. Cook on low 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.
I thickened the sauce when I returned home by straining out the liquid into the saucepan & thickening with some flour.
I cooked the brown rice before leaving for church in the morning. I didn't need to reheat the rice, since pouring the saucy stew over top made it nice & hot.
|I didn't have red peppers in mine, but that would be a nice addition.|
Here's what the Brownlee Test Kitchen had to say!
4 yr old - still sick with no appetite. Laid on couch & watched Tinkerbell.
10 yr old - I don't think pineapples go good with stew. She was also sick and had very little appetite.
12 yr old - It's great! The chicken is so good and tender. Could use more flavour though.
Husband - I'm enjoying this stew. I'm going to have some more. Darling. (Now he knows that I will write down what he says, he's trying to sound like the perfect husband!) It could use more soya sauce.
Homestay Student - It's okay. When pressed for more details she added, Maybe some spice would help? I like you, just not your stew. I assured her I wouldn't take it personally.
The Cook - I'm glad the pineapples aren't overpoweringly sweet like some pineapple sauce. It is a little too bland though. Next time I would add chicken stock to flavour it up.
