Recipe -- Hawaiian Chicken Slow Cooker

Hawaiian Chicken
2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast
1 can pineapple chunks, drained
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 packed brown sugar
2 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground ginger

Cut the chicken into large bite-sized chunks.  Put everything into your crockpot and stir it around until everything is mixed up.  Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 to 6 hours.

Verdict:  I used frozen breast and couldn't chunk it.  I just placed the whole breast into the crockpot.  I felt their was not enough flavor to the chicken.  It was dry and that was probably do to not cutting it up.  However, for lunch today I shredded my breast and placed it and some of the fruit into a tortilla.  Served along with some peach salsa.  It was much better and juicier!  I think next time I'll cut it up and see if it helps.
