    I made this a few nights ago. Served it over multi grain rice. Very yummy and filling. Left overs were good for work lunches for a few days. Freezes well too. - 1/11/09

    This recipe is great! But I did spice it up! I added more ginger and used chopped garlic instead of powder! I also used 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce and 1 tbsp low sodium teriyaki sauce. I also added some red pepper flake for heat. I stir fried some veggies and served it with that.
    Very Very YummY - 1/6/09

    Loved this!I served it over white rice and added sauteed broccoli to the dish to up the veggies.
    Also, I never use corn starch to thicken, I have a couple different tricks, but for this recipe I pureed about half a can of carrots w/ some of the pineapple and stirred it in to thicken, upping the veg - 11/13/09

    It is the crock pot now - easy to prepare - followed other comments and added minced garlic, ginger and added chili pepper flakes. I also left out the brown sugar since some say too sweet. We will see how it is after work. - 1/20/09

    I loved this so much. I'll admit, it lacked color but that can be easily solved. Easy to make, though I would suggest cooking it on low instead of high. - 6/6/10

    This was good, but as others have said, a little bland. I used just a little teriyaki sauce as a condiment and it made the dish. - 12/29/09

    Yummy! I made it with chicken thighs and used the pressure cooker. This is now one of hubby's favorite recipes. Really good as leftovers!

    I made this on the stovetop because I didn't have the time to make it in the slow cooker.

    This was a tasty recipe but a bit too sweet for my liking. I would have it again but not very often. It makes a nice change from the ordinary. - 1/13/09

    I made this for dinner tonight and served it over some rice. It was very easy to prepare. Next time I will add a bit more ginger and garlic to boost the flavors. The house smelled great while everything was cooking! - 12/16/08

  • Chicken is sooo tender from the slow cooker and the flavors are were just enough for my boyfriend and I. No flavor overpowered the dish but it was all very flavorful and balanced. The pineapple adds a nice texture too. Delicious and easy! - 2/23/11
