Hawaiian Chicken

My family loved this meal, kids and adults. I love crock pot meals, don't you? This made the house smell heavenly. Ginger, onions and garlic, oh my!

Hawaiian Crock Pot Chicken

10-12 chicken tenders or 4-5 chicken breasts
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 cups water
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 can crushed pineapple
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 Tb. grated ginger
1/4 package green onions, chopped finely

Mix all ingredients (except chicken) in a big bowl. Place chicken in a big ziploc bag with mixture and marinate overnight. Cook all day in a crock-pot. To thicken, mix a couple tablespoons of cornstarch with some water and to chicken. To thicken more, repeat. Shred chicken and serve over rice.

(I didn't marinate overnight and we still thought it was wonderful. Perhaps it would have been even better. )
