Next, I needed something with simple ingredients because I had not gotten to go grocery shopping yet. I knew I had garlic, onions and green peppers. I also had thawed some chicken. Looking over my pantry, I found a can of pineapples (in their own juice). So, I googled, searched, and found this recipe. It looked good, so I figured I would give it a try.
It smelled okay while it was cooking all day. I had some doubts about how it would taste. Maybe I had imagined it would smell different, but it wasn't what I was prepared for. As dinner came, I knew I had to suck it up and give it a try. I'm not usually a rice fan (I'll eat it, but I hardly EVER prepare it), but this seemed like a good concoction to serve over rice. So, I threw some instant brown rice in a pot and steamed it up. Once it was done, I placed a few pieces of the chicken (which had become so tender it practically fell apart - I LOVE that about slowcookers) and poured some of the sauce over the rice.
It. Was. Amazing.
I couldn't believe it, but it REALLY came together - and quite tastily, if I do say so myself.
I give this the Steph Slowcooker Approval. SIMPLE ingredients, easily put together, and can be made in a crockpot. Life doesn't get any better than this. If you try it out, let me know how it comes together for YOU!
