Slow Cooker Sweet & Sour Chicken (21 DF/ H & C Approved)

I was looking for something easy to throw in the crockpot this morning. Something filling, something warm, and something that my kiddos would be happy to come home to! The house smelled amazing when they walked in the door and they couldn't wait to peek inside that crockpot to see what mama had waiting...

So this one was a new twist on an old favorite. Typically sweet and sour chicken dishes have bell peppers in, but one of my kiddos is not particularly fond of them so I decided to leave them out this time. You could always add them for a more "grown up" version!

We served this over brown rice and with a side of vegetable stir fry with some liquid aminos. Seriously satisfying and no left overs!!

Easy prep, easy clean up (especially if you use a slow cooker liner), and happy kids!! I call that winning :)

Ingredients:


1/3 c liquid aminos or low sodium soy sauce 
2 Tbsp raw honey
2 cloves garlic, minced 
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1.25lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 small yellow onion, chopped (about 3/4c)
1 fresh pineapple, cut into 1 inch cubes
 
I simply threw everything in the crockpot on low for 8 hours. Then I shredded the chicken and Wa-LA!!
