Let's Make It
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.
To make your slow-cooker preparation even faster, get ingredients ready the night before and place in the slow cooker. Remove inner container and refrigerate until ready to cook the next day.
Serve with hot cooked brown rice.
