Gluten Free Sweet & Sour Chicken




I have a good friend who makes amazing Hawaiian meatballs when she throws a party.  She gave me the recipe for the sauce 5 years ago and I have been using it on pork and chicken ever since.  It is sweet and zesty and it adapted very well to gluten-free!

In the oven prepare 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or 4 small) until fully cooked through.  Chop.

In a saucepan combine:

1 14 oz can of Dole crushed pineapple (ingredients should be just pineapple and pineapple juice)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup Heinz Ketchup
1/4 cup gluten free soya sauce

Bring to a boil and add 1 tbsp of potato starch and stir to thicken.

Allow to simmer on medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often.  Transfer to slow cooker and add chopped chicken.  Allow to cook for 2 hours on low in the slow cooker, stirring occasionally.

Serve over rice or gluten free noodles (shown is a mixture of basmatti rice, wild rice and quinoa).

Cheers!
