    I loved this recipe it was simple and easy! THe chicken was moist and delish. Will definitely be making again. Can’t wait to try more recipes.

    Michelle, So sorry the chicken did not turn out for y’all. It may have overcooked. Some models of slow cookers tend to cook hot and we have to adjust the cooking time.

    Just gross. Chicken turned out dry, was pretty flavorless. So bummed because it sounded really good :(

    This turned out well, not one of our “go to” meals, but a good meal to mix into the rotation. I had to play with the corn starch and brown sugar amounts (a little less corn starch and a little more brown sugar). I used crushed pineapple the second time around and liked that better. Served over brown rice, great for a chicken dish with a sweet flavor.

    This is our FAVORITE crockin meal! Sometimes i change it up a little and add a bottle of Sweet Baby Rays…but our favorite is just like the recipe calls for

    Thanks, Rebecca, for your comments! We always love hearing how recipes are tweaked and changed for specific tastes. I’m thrilled it was a hit with most in your family. What’s with men and their aversion to meat with fruit?!?!? At least he tried…he’s a trooper! Happy Crockin’!

    I really liked this recipe! I did add a bit more brown sugar than the first time I made it and I liked the sweetness it added. Instead of ginger (I was out), I used pumpkin pie spice – it had ginger in it! My ultra picky son said it was delicious and even said that the pineapples were like eating ‘apple pie.’ My husband (also super picky)didn’t really like the pinapple ‘topping,’ but I and the rest of my family really enjoyed it!
    So thankful for this website! It has not only added variety to our meals, but made my job a tad easier!! Thank you!
