This Asian themed entree is made in the crockpot, so it can cook while you are busy with more important things.Very important in these last few days leading up to Christmas.

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 10 boneless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed 
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • dash ground cloves
  • 20 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained with juice reserved
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
Place uncooked rice in the bottom of slow cooker and top with chicken breasts. In a bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic, ginger, cloves and pineapple juice. Once the mixture is smooth, pour into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours, until chicken is cooked completely through. Add pineapple 15 minutes before serving to heat. When ready to serve, remove chicken from slow cooker. Mix corn starch and water in a small bowl then blend into rice and sauce mixture. Allow to cook for another 10-15 minutes before serving.
