Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…. Pacific Rim Chicken

by Lisa on August 30, 2010

Tempt my Tummy Tuesday

First I want to remind you all, we will be hosting Tempt My Tummy Tuesday at the At The Well website, next week.  The post will go up at 12-midnight for Tuesday morning.  I know many of you are used to posting on Monday evening.  I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience.  We will host TMTT every second Tuesday of the month at At The Well.  I will have a post, on Blessed with Grace, reminding you and giving you the link.  I do hope you are will join us, next week, At The Well.

Today I am sharing a tasty crock pot meal.  I love crock pot meals, and I know many of you are fans, as well.

Pacific Rim Chicken

  • 1- large onion, finely chopped
  • 1-large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4-5 large chicken breast halves, skin and fat removed (about 3 1/2 lbs)
  • 1- 8oz can crushed pineapple, including juice
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth (I used reduced sodium broth.)
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce ( I used reduced sodium soy sauce.)
  • 1 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/3 cup long-grain white rice, cooked according to package directions

In large crock pot, combine onion and green pepper.  Arrange chicken over vegetables.  In medium bowl, combine pineapple and juice, broth, sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, ginger, salt, if desired, and black pepper. Stir to mix.  Pour over chicken.

Cover and cook on high 1 hour.  Reduce heat to low, stir chicken into sauce, and cook an additional 5-6 hours or until chicken is done.

Remove and reserve chicken in medium bowl.   Transfer liquid and vegetables to saucepan.  Quickly boil down sauce, stirring frequently, to thicken slightly.   Meanwhile, slice chicken meat.  Arrange rice on serving platter.  Arrange chicken slices over rice.  Pour sauce over all.

I feel like I need to put on a lei and do the hula! 🙂 Looks delish! Thanks for hosting this each week! I’ve gotten so many fabulous recipes. I wish I had the time to try each one as well as the metabolism to eat them. LOL! 🙂

Thanks for the carnival.

When I did my September Menu Plan, I themed the days of the week, this time. I thought it was worth a try. Mondays are Crockpot days, I’ll definitely be trying this.
Thanks so much for hosting!


Lisa August 31, 2010 at 8:02 am

Good idea, Liz- another way to try and help direct your thoughts when coming up with good meals for the family. 🙂

That looks sooooo delicious! I will definitely have to give this a try and soon too. I really love (obsessed is probably closer to the truth, and I’m ok with that;) ) my crock pot(s).

My recipe above is an inexpensive and healthy version of ranch dressing to make at home….includes dairy and dairy-free versions! Also, how to make your own mayo to go in the ranch dressing, if you’re really gung-ho about it =)

Yummy recipe, Lisa! I’d love it if you’d bring some of your good recipes along with your readers for my first BlogBBQ September 2nd-6th. You have so many good ones. Thanks for having all of us to your fun new digs!


Mary @ Giving Up on Perfect August 31, 2010 at 8:59 am

Yum! I wish my husband would eat something like that. Maybe if he didn’t see me make it (so he didn’t know what was in it)!! 😉
