Thursday Recipe - Island Chicken

The post is late. This week has been crazy at work and at home. Tuesday night, our Cub Scout Pack had their Blue & Gold Banquet. Guess who was in charge of the food? That's right. Me.

We took our Cubs and their families on a cruise. They were hit by a hurricane and stranded on a deserted island. The natives prepared a great feast for them. I love Cub Scouts. You can have so much fun with them and their imaginations.

My Island Chicken got rave reviews, so I thought I'd share the recipe. Fast and easy, like always. Serve it with rice and a green salad for a full meal.

Island Chicken

2 lbs boneless chicken
1 c. crushed pineapple
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 T. ginger

Mix everything except chicken to make a sauce.

Oven version: Put chicken in a baking dish. Pour sauce mix over and bake at 350° for 35-50 minutes until the chicken is done.

Crockpot version: Put chicken in a 3 - 4 quart crockpot, pour sauce over the top. Cook on low for 4 - 5 hours or on high for 2 - 3 hours, until chicken is done.
