Serve with recipe and a green salad for an easy chicken dinner.


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp cornstarch

  • 398-mL can pineapple chunks, drained

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce

  • 4-6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts


  • COMBINE garlic, ginger, brown sugar, cornstarch, pineapple, soy sauce and lemon juice in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add chicken and turn a few times to ensure it is fully coated. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hr or until chicken is no longer pink inside.

Kitchen Tip: Be careful not to overcook the chicken breasts—they will dry out if you leave them in too long. Substitute 1½-lb chicken thighs to reduce the risk.
