I couldn't find an actual blog that this was posted on.
I saw this on Facebook the other day and it looked really good and really easy! When I searched it on Pinterest, I found many negative comments about it. They said that it was really gross, the sauce never caramelized, the picture must be fake, etc. I was nervous to try it, so I halved the recipe thinking if it bombed I wouldn't be out much.
I wish I would have made the full batch!! It was AMAZING! It turned out just like the chicken that I always fill my plate up with at a chinese buffet (sweet and sour, or General Tso?)! I loved it!
*I used frozen, breaded "popcorn chicken", and used crushed pineapples instead of just pineapple juice (I scooped half crushed pineapple and half drained juice). I needed more sauce than called for since I was only doing half of the recipe. It hardly covered the bottom of my crockpot. The more sauce, the better (then you can let it sink into your rice more).
I'm so excited to make this as often as I can. It isn't very healthy, so it'll have to be a treat every once in a while!
I wouldn't cook it the full 6-8 hours. After 2-3, it tasted great (I snuck a piece to make sure I didn't need to intervene). I left it in 4+ hours and got a little sticky and harder to chew (but still delicious). I think maybe 3 hours would be perfect (not sure when working with uncooked chicken, but I'm sure it would be done by then).
Experiment and leave a comment with what worked for you!
