Sweet and tangy crock pot chicken? Meh.

This was the recipe on Pinterest…

Thanks, Crockpot! 1 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/3 cup light soy sauce, 2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins, 6-8 hours on low http://pinterest.com/pin/18366310951669555/

I added a packet of crushed red peppers.

I cut up the chicken after about an hour. Once again, the chicken all just kinda fell apart. That keeps happening to me with chicken in a crock pot. Maybe I need to leave the breasts whole until the very end? Or maybe it’s because I used chicken breasts instead of tenderloins?

And I expected it to have a thick, glazy kinda sauce but, no, it was thin.
And it wasn’t spicy – I guess I should have added more peppers? Or wait until the end to add them?


I mixed it up with stir fry vegetables and put it all over oriental rice.

It wasn’t particularly bad but it wasn’t anything special. I expected awesome.
