Once upon a time we lived in a place where I lived the battle of the oven. It was supposed to be a brand new oven but it worked once or twice and then quit. It only would get up to about 200 degrees or so. Great for keeping things warm not so much for cooking.
So I was constantly trying to come up with dishes that I could make in the slow cooker or the stove top. I love my crock pot but of course I really wanted Honey Glazed Chinese Chicken but that needed to be made in the oven not in the slow cooker. After trying to figure it out for a few days I came across a recipe on Pinterest where she made chicken wings in the slow cooker and then put them under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp them up. Brilliant! So I was off to make some yummy sticky (and crispy!) chicken. Last minute I decided to add in a little bit of pineapple juice just to change things up a bit. I’m glad I did because it was a big hit with the kiddos.
I like to thicken the pineapple sauce that the chicken has cooked in and serve it up for those who want some extra sticky pineapple chicken. It’s really easy to thicken up the pineapple sauce with a little cornstarch on the stove top really quick. Brush on the glaze just before you put the chicken under the broiler for extra crispy and sticky chicken.
In honor of National Slow Cooker Month (yes, it’s a thing) I’ve teamed up with some other bloggers to bring you a few tasty slow cooker dishes. I hope you check them out because you might just find some new favorites.
