Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

What's for dinner 10/06/10: Crockpot Tropical Chicken, rice & green & yellow wax beans

So for tonight's Feingold friendly dinner we had sweet chicken with pineapple, ginger & teriyaki sauce with rice and green and yellow wax beans...

Tropical Chicken
Serves 6-8

4-6 skinless boneless chicken breast
1 onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
2 8oz cans of pineapple chunks (I actually just used a 20 oz can)
6 Tbsp approved teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp grated fresh ginger

Coat your crockpot with cooking spray or use a reynolds crockpot liner (I think these are the best invention).  Place the 1st 3 ingredients in the crockpot.

In a small bowl combine the next 3 ingredients and mix well.  Pour over the chicken.

Cook for 8-10 hours (but my experience says that is too long for chicken and I only cook for about 6 hours)

Serve with rice, if desired but if shred it like I do it would do good on a sweet roll for sandwiches I think

VERDICT: it was good and the kids ate it all up...just sweet enough to get that tropical taste with the pineapple and ginger, next time I think i would add the pineapple maybe the last 2 hours or so, they were cooked a little too long for my taste.
