Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Mix all ingredients except pineapple, cornstarch and bell pepper in 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker.
  • 2
    Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink in center.
  • 3
    Mix reserved pineapple juice and cornstarch until smooth; gradually stir into chicken mixture. Stir in pineapple and bell pepper.
  • 4
    Cover and cook on high heat setting about 15 minutes or until slightly thickened. Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

Expert Tips

  • (Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)
  • Cornstarch doesn't mix well into hot liquids, especially soups and stews. Stirring the cornstarch into the reserved pineapple juice before adding it to the stew helps prevent lumps.
  • To make this great stew extra-special, just sprinkle with sliced green onions and toasted coconut or chopped peanuts or cashews.
