The Memorial Day weekend kicks off the unofficial start of summer. And with summer comes vacation planning!
I don't know about you, but I'd love to go to Hawaii! Unfortunately, with two kids in braces, that won't be happening any time soon. However, I can always dream, and this Hawaiian Chicken recipe makes me feel like I'm there--okay, not really, but it sure tastes good!
Hope you enjoy it, too! It's a crock pot recipe and only takes minutes to assemble, but you will need to set aside up to five hours for it to cook. It's delicious over rice!
This recipe is from my General Electric Slow Cooker Recipe Book.
3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved (I use thighs)
1 16 ounce can pineapple slices, drained (I use chunks)
1 15 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
Combine all ingredients in the crock. Stir well. Cover and cook on:
Low - 4 to 5 hours
High- 2 to 3 hours
Where will yo be vacationing this summer? Have you ever been to Hawaii?
Thanks for visiting! By the way, if you're looking for a summer read, give my novel The Governor's Sons a try!
