  • Place onions, carrots and celery in slow cooker sprayed with cooking spray; top with chicken.
  • Mix sugar, dressing, soy sauce and ginger until blended; pour over chicken. Cover with lid.
  • Cook on LOW 4 to 5 hours, increasing heat to HIGH for the last 30 min.
  • Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Mix reserved juice with cornstarch. Add to slow cooker along with the pineapple and peppers; stir. Cook, covered, 30 min. or until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice.


This recipe works best when cooked on LOW heat. But if you choose to cook it on HIGH, reduce the initial cooking time to 2-1/2 to 3 hours.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was pleasantly surprised! I was pleasantly surprised! Very simple and tasted good! Kids, hubby and I liked it! I substituted ground ginger for the fresh (but will use fresh in the future). I doubled the sauce as others mentioned -- good idea. I doubled the recipe (that means x4 on the sauce) and cooked it on fast/high for 4 hours. Made brown rice instead of white rice. Put peppers, pineapple, cornstarch in at the end like instructed. (Don't want floppy veggies!) Will enjoy the leftovers!! (why not make a double batch when you use the slowcooker?!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delicious! Absolutely delicious!!!! I read other reviews and increased the Catalina dressing to 3/4 cup. I used chicken breast instead of thighs since I don't like dark meat and baby cut carrots instead of slicing a carrot. I couldn't believe it was so easy and tasted better than take out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this for dinner tonight...easy and wonderful! Made this for dinner tonight...easy and wonderful! I used 3 frozen chicken breast and tripled the sauce. When I came home from work the chicken just fell apart! I shredded the chicken, added the bell peppers (2 green and 1 red), the corn starch and pineapple plus some water chestnuts! The sauce was thick and bell peppers done by the time my rice was done! We will make this again!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was excellent! This was excellent! More sweet than sour, however. We try to watch our sugar intake so I used Splenda brown sugar blend, as well as pineapple sweetened w/ Splenda. We ate it over instant brown rice. I did add about a tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in a couple tablespoons of water at the last hour when i added the peppers and pineapple to thicken the sauce a little. Yum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband and I loved this recipe. My husband and I loved this recipe. I used Splenda brown sugar and fat free Catalina dressing for the sauce, and I doubled the sauce. By using splenda, you use less brown sugar. The cooking time was only about 3 to 4 hours. Also added chopped cashews before serving. Very tasty!! Will definitely make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MMMMM this was very good :) I skipped the ginger and doubled the sauce. MMMMM this was very good :) I skipped the ginger and doubled the sauce. I cooked it in the crock pot on low for about 5 hours total (like the recipe says to do!) and it turned out amazing :). My family loved it. I will definitely make it again! i did stir it off and on during the day -Making sure to keep the chicken in the sauce. It was full of flavor and nothing was overdone. Over white rice it's really good :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was very good! This was very good! As some have said, the only change I made was that I doubled the amount of Catalina, sugar and cornstarch to have plenty of sauce. We will definitely make this again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The ingredients sounded great, and they were. The ingredients sounded great, and they were. The downfall with this recipe was the sauce. It tasted more like Barbeque Sauce and at the end of the cooking time the carrots, celery and onions were dark brown mush. I would love to see this recipe redone for stirfry with a better sauce.
