Gardner Grub- Slow Cooker Sweet & Sour Chicken

As promised here is the recipe for Sweet and Sour Chicken in the crock pot. The recipe includes pineapples and pineapple juice but I forgot to pick up a can (and honestly I don't enjoy warm pineapples) so the picture is without them. I also didn't have a red pepper, so I only used green. That's the great thing about recipes - you can add/subtract to your liking.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken
from Kraft Foods

1 onion, sliced
1 carrot, sliced
1 celery stalk, sliced
1-1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breasts), cut into pieces
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup Kraft Catalina Dressing
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp grated gingerroot
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 can (8oz) pineapple chunks (reserve juice)
1 green pepper & 1 red pepper, chopped

Place onions, carrots and celery in slow cooker; top with chicken.
Mix sugar, dressing, soy sauce and ginger; pour over chicken.
Cover lid.
Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours.
Stir cornstarch into reserved pineapple juice. Add to slow cooker along with peppers and pineapples, stir. Cook on high, covered, for 30 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
