Hawaiian Chicken

I love cooking in my crock pot- especially during these hot summer months when a hot stove or oven is my nemesis. I was looking for something new to throw in one morning and came up with this concoction. I'm really hoping I remember everything I put in now... It's pretty simple and eliminates the need to stand over heat! It has a sweet taste with just a touch of sour to it. The pineapple makes it nice and light, perfect when you don't want something heavy at 113 degrees! The chicken can be shredded and added into the rice topping, but I kinda liked it on the side.

2 lbs chicken breasts {I just threw mine in frozen- best part!}
1 16 oz can crushed pineapple with juice
1 C chopped green pepper
1 C packed brown sugar
2 tbsp quick cooking tapioca
2 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
2 stalks green onions, chopped
1/3 C honey
1/2 C orange juice

Place chicken in crock pot. Add remaining ingredients. If you wanna get fancy, mix remaining ingredients in a separate bowl then pour to coat the chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over rice.

This would be good topped with almonds or macadamia nuts.
